“Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.”
Becoming an elder law attorney has allowed me to truly enjoy every single day spent at the office. Protecting our families and assets is so important, and as an elder law attorney I am able to do just that: with over a decade of experience in estate planning and administration, as well as Medicaid planning and applications, I will provide you with the protection you need.
Planning for the future brings my clients a peace of mind in knowing that they have made necessary preparations. Whether you become disabled, require skilled nursing care, or pass away, your assets are protected to ensure the care you need will be provided and your families will not have to struggle with unnecessary issues. Together, we put a plan in place to allow these matters to be handled both effectively and efficiently.
I desire to aid the elder community in preserving and protecting what is already theirs as well as giving them the aid and advice they need in getting their rightfully earned benefits. Whether it be VA benefits, Medicaid benefits or Disability benefits, I strive to get my clients all that they deserve. On a daily basis, I work with individuals to create estate plans which may include powers of attorney, wills, trusts, and other documents in preservation of assets and long-term care planning. I also stand side-by-side with my clients in obtaining these benefits. I don’t consider this work, I consider it an honor bestowed upon me which provides me with the opportunity to make my clients’ lives better. I further practice Real Estate Law, because it allows me to simplify and guide my clients through a seemingly complicated stage in life. I do this by helping my clients through purchase agreements, mortgage documents, title documents, transfer documents, and closings.
Outside of the office, I am a mother and wife. I obtained my Juris Doctorate from Cumberland School of Law in Birmingham, AL in 2002, whilst raising three little girls. After graduation, I moved to Sacramento, CA where I passed the California Bar Exam and took a job in business litigation. I decided to move back to Alabama because I felt it would be the best place to raise my daughters, and took a job in a busy real estate practice. Although I enjoyed the work, I felt like there was something missing from my practice. This is when I became interested in Elder Law. I decided to research that area of law and all the practice areas involved, and opened Givens Law Firm, PC in 2009. This enabled me to work doing the things I love- helping clients take care of themselves and their families.
In 2017, I decided to join practices with Norma Wells, and we created Turning Point Legal, PC.
