Kim Boyer and staff were very professional, helpful and organized. We needed something done quickly and they did it. Kim Boyer gave us creative ideas for what was a very unique situation, at least to us. The Paralegal, Luisa Heizer, was one of the best I have ever dealt with and was great at explaining details and always quick to return calls and to follow-up.

I am glad I used Boyer Law Group because Kim Boyer is understanding and knowledgeable on both legal and everyday issues affecting senior citizens, their families and caretakers. Kim Boyer is compassionate and treats each client as if they were her only client. Kim Boyer explains the legal process and what to expect every step of the way. Her integrity is reflected by her reasonable fees and her overall application of elder law as it applies to individual cases.

It is a first class, professional organization from the receptionist to the paralegal and the attorney. There are not enough words in the English language to adequately compliment Jo Smith. Jo's warmth, compassion and humor is especially appreciated during active grieving. She answered every question immediately; her competence was duly noted. It's apparent that there's pride throughout the Boyer Law Group. The concept "it takes a village' has been beautifully applied to the Boyer Law Group

We cannot make enough compliments about Ms. Boyer and her employees. They have always given us time when we had questions, walked us through the process and our options. We had contacted other attorneys and they were more expensive and we did not feel the same kind of empathy and compassion that we had with Ms. Boyer. Our family was well-taken care of and we highly recommend her.

I felt like they were in it for the money. This was a long distance relationship with my parent in their area. I was given their name by a social worker and they helped somewhat but really didn't help with all the issues. They did want to know how much money my parent had and then when they found out how much they had then they said well we normally charge this much but we will lower it to your amount barely leaving enough in the bank accounts. Would I use them again? No, I would look around.

Kim Boyer was helpful in getting the best possible help when my husband was diagnosed with Alzheimer. She has helped with all the problems I encountered with the death of my husband.
