THOROUGH, THOUGHTFUL APPROACH SAVED THOUSANDS – To me, Kelly Shovelin is a good example of what a lawyer should be. It is so very refreshing to see someone of her caliber in the legal profession. After putting my brother's estate in order when he suffered a life-changing medical trauma, I then enlisted Kelly's services for my own estate planning and asset protection needs. I have every confidence in Kelly and have recommended her to my friends who have also been pleased with her work. She is a lawyer of great knowledge and integrity, and in my book, she is "the ultimate!"
FOUR PILLARS RESPECTS FAMILY AND FRIENDSHIP – I have the great fortune of being a part of a tight-knit family, and my aunt, who had no children of her own, has always held a prominent and special role in my life. Last year, I helped to relocate my aunt, currently 95 years "young," from her lifelong home in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to an assisted living facility here in Wilmington.
Concerned that her legal papers from Pennsylvania might not be valid for residency in North Carolina, I contacted the NC Bar Association with a request for a referral. They referred me to Kelly Shovelin. Esq. of Four Pillars Law Firm, a dedicated elder law expert. I was immediately taken with Kelly's communication skills and extensive knowledge of elder law. She reviewed the documents drafted in Pennsylvania and made recommendations to me as to how I could best protect my aunt and myself while caring for her here in NC.
Throughout the process, I enjoyed a wonderful, personable dialogue with Kelly which grew into a friendship. I've dealt with many lawyers in the past and have never found it easy to "cozy up" to one before. But Kelly's warm personality and sense of humor shine through. Not only did I find a trusted lawyer to protect a beloved family member, I also made a new friend in Kelly Shovelin.
PROTECTING MEDICAID BENEFITS AND PERSONAL ASSETS – When my elderly cousin was at risk of losing his Medicaid benefits due to an inheritance, my mother and I were at a loss. We didn't know how to protect his personal income while maintaining Medicaid coverage to assist with the exorbitant costs of full-time nursing care. Attorney Kelly Shovelin brought the perfect combination of strong expertise and personal sensitivity to the situation, helping us to provide for our cousin's long-term needs while limiting the amount of time that he was ineligible for Medicaid. I will use her services again and recommend her to anyone faced with similar circumstances.
FOUR PILLARS SUCCESSFULLY LED OUR BATTLE FOR VETERANS BENEFI – As my parents struggled with the financial burden of my father's ongoing medical expenses, social workers told me there were no resources available to help. Yet, within minutes of meeting Kelly Shovelin, she ascertained that my father, a veteran of the Korean War, was indeed eligible for Veteran's Benefits. Kelly skillfully guided us through the arduous application and approval process (in our case, it took seven months!) with a steadfast and thorough approach. Thanks to her efforts, my father now receives a monthly disability pension of $1949.00 per month to defray his medical expenses. Best of all, my parents and I have restored peace of mind, knowing they won't be financially crippled by my father's ongoing medical costs.
