Since 1977 the law offices of Michael E. Thomas have provided service to families based upon several principles; 1) the client's peace of mind is our priority, 2) we are peacemakers, not troublemakers. Litigation in most cases is emotionally and financially counterproductive. 3)Our planning philosophy is, "It is not about money, it is about people." Before planning, we insist on knowing all about all family members or beneficiaries so that we can design the plan to best benefit the family emotionally, spiritually, legally and financially. We are constantly updating our planning techniques in response to changing laws, society, and family circumstances. We have an excellent reputation among state agencies and employ two retired state Medicaid workers to assist our clients and their families during difficult circumstances. We often pray with our clients with their permission during stressful times, because their peace of mind is our priority.
