At Kleiner Feldman Plotkin we work directly with families who have recently lost a loved one, as well with the D.C.

WHAT YOU'VE SAID
"After being declined for Medicare three times over 18 months, I sought legal advice. I wish I'd found Kleiner Feldman Plotkin sooner.
Lisa took my case, organized my timeline, and assembled all of my necessary documentation. She contacted agencies in D.C. and called people at SSA (and this during the pandemic lockdown when offices were closed and people worked remotely).
Within weeks I had a phone appointment with SSA. That 45 minute call was all it took for SSA to sort out my paperwork and grant me Medicare AND my much earned pension.
I cannot be more grateful. Thank you, Lisa!
A huge weight was lifted off my shoulders and a years worth of worry and anxiety dissolved in minutes."
"The mortgage was in my name and I needed to know that if I died first he'd have our home to remain in without having to move or sell.
Lisa listened and suggested a Transfer Upon Death Deed. Within a few days and a few documents, years of worry disappeared.
These are some
of the smartest, kindest. most resourceful and CONNECTED people you will ever meet."
