Your services are absolutely amazing. I left my corporate job to care for my mother. I was my mother's caregiver for eleven years and went through my savings. I literally thought after I had to place her in a nursing home that I would be homeless. After working with you, I was able to keep the house. I will be forever grateful to Delaney Delaney & Voorn!

Friendly and professional. When I was sitting at the conference table, I was not overwhelmed by. "Lawyer talk"."


Every Person I spoke with was kind and helpful. Also very patient with me and my little knowledge of the law, sometimes my lawyer had to explain information to me more than once.
