“What a pleasure working with Erin and Janna! It’s great to see our loved one pulled from the cracks of bureaucratic neglect into a situation that should bring him real contentment. It’s a shame this was not an option before or was not done for him many years ago, but it’s huge progress all the same. Thanks for working as a team to make it happen.” – client from Boston, Massachusetts area

“Words cannot describe how grateful I am for the excellent advice and help I have received from Janna, and Melissa. Our journey began about 7 years ago when my parents and I decided that we should have any legal paperwork drawn up quickly because my Mom was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. From Janna helping us with the paperwork, Erin assisting me in finding a nursing home for Mom, and Melissa helping with Medicaid applications, everything went very smoothly. Such wonderful advocates for the elderly! Our journey has now ended. Mom died in Sept. and Dad died just 3 short months later. Do not hesitate contacting Dutton & Casey when you need a law firm that handles elder law.” – M. Casey, Lombard, Illinois, 2-13-15

“I’m fortunate to have attended one of the Illinois Elderlaw Conferences a number of years ago in which Janna Dutton was one of the presenters. Her knowledge of the subject matter and the manner in presenting the information impressed both my son and me. As a result I engaged her to update my will, my trust and powers of attorney and, later, to handle and guide me through additional elder care work, the latter which was done mostly by one of Janna’s very capable, knowledgeable and efficient associates. My thanks to Janna Dutton and her associates for their professionalism and concern. Your knowledge, professionalism and ability to satisfactorily and efficiently complete the elder care work you did for my wife and me is truly appreciated. I enjoyed working with you. My thanks.” – client from Schaumburg, Illinois

Their social worker, Erin Vogt, provided this expertise with sensitivity and efficiency. She also made sure my sister had someone to look in on her and help her adjust to her new surroundings after the move. I am deeply grateful to Dutton & Casey and to Erin Vogt.” – client from Connecticut
