A great person, resource and attorney

Attorney Schneider is very empathetic and knowledgeable about elderly law and the many related issues – a great person, resource and attorney. Her experienced staff did a great job of wrapping up the details. I recommend her without reservation.

Gave us peace of mind knowing that he will be fine

Raising a special needs child is very hard for parents. Making sure your child is taken care of after you leave is just as hard. Stephanie and her staff made it so much easier to plan for him and gave us peace of mind knowing that he will be fine. We are VERY grateful for her guidance and patience with us and we HIGHLY recommend Stephanie to help you have the same peace of mind that we do.

Estate Planning

I first become aware of Attorney Schneider by attending a seminar at the West Regional Library. I found her presentation very informative and decided to arrange an appointment to discuss my estate planning. Her office was very professional and sent me a packet which contained information that I need to gather in-order to be prepared for our meeting. Ms. Schneider went over the information packet with me in her office and listened to what I wanted done. Her staff was available to me if I had any questions concerning the paperwork that was being prepared. The next appointment was to go over the requested documents and they were discussed in detail so that I would feel comfortable about what was in them.

Very helpful navigating us through the legal maze of probate

MS Schneider and all the people at her office were patient with my Mother setting up her will and trust. When my Mother passed, MS Schneider was very helpful navigating us through the legal maze of probate and estate administration. I highly recommend MS Schneider and her legal team for Elder Law matters.

She excelled with her expertise and knowledge of the Florida court system

Stephanie helped me through a difficult situation to help a close relative in South Florida. She excelled with her expertise and knowledge of the Florida court system. She also had a very personal approach to work with me directly to explain the issues, and help work towards a positive outcome. I would be lost without her.

I could not imagine us working through these difficult issues without her

Stephanie has been providing legal service’s to both myself, and my family, for over a decade. We have used her services across almost all of the areas she practices, and can attest that she is a subject matter expert in all of them. She has helped me handle the legalities of caring for a family member with special needs, including the complexities of working through the details of acquiring, and maintaining, government benefits. She has helped my family close out the estate of a deceased family member, which was left open for years due to the poor job our original lawyer did, and she has provided long term care planning, and trust administration, for other elderly family members. I could not imagine us working through these difficult issues without her. I highly recommend her for her expertise, thoroughness, professionalism, and a family like environment with regards to the way she cares for their clients.

Consulted and Hired

Stephanie reviewed and amended a Will, Trust, Healthcare Surrogate, and Living will I had from a previous lawyer. I was extremely happy with the end results. She had to add some legal documents that were left out.

I've found Stephanie to be a very qualified elder attorney, a compassionate professional, with both a successful and diverse background

Stephanie recently invited me to attend a webinar with a focus on Medicaid and VA Aid & Attendance. As both a CMS certified Florida insurance agent/broker and Veteran of foreign war, the session was very informative and beneficial to me. Over the years, I’ve found Stephanie to be a very qualified elder attorney, a compassionate professional, with both a successful and diverse background.

She carefully listened to our specific situation and concerns

This story began in 1995 when my wife was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease. Over the following years, we both became members of the S.W. Focal Point Senior Center in Pembroke Pines. For over six years my wife attended weekly chair yoga classes and I joined a care-giver’s support group. Later In retirement, I reached a point where it was becoming more difficult for me to provide the needed care for my wife. I discussed this with our coordinator in the support group and asked for recommendations of someone who could help guide me through the maze of financial and estate planning, long-term care options, designation of health care surrogates, etc. I was shocked upon learning the costs of skilled nursing facilities in our area. I feared that withing a few short years I would likely become impoverished. The only name recommended by the staff and our friends at the Senior Center was Stephanie Schneider. They all suggested that I talk to Stephanie. My wife and I met with Stephanie shortly thereafter and were extremely pleased with how she carefully listened to our specific situation and concerns. Stephanie and her support team walked us through the many options available. I soon realized that this law firm was exactly what I needed. Over the next few years, Stephanie and her staff helped us navigate through those initial concerns. And then we delved into the complex issues of Medicaid evaluation and application. We learned about estate planning, preserving assets. qualifying special needs trusts, designation of health care surrogates and many related topics. Stephanie knows elder law well and is fully aware of any recent changes in the law. She and her staff are respectful, friendly, and knowledgeable. I am happy that several years ago I took those suggestions from the Senior Center to talk to Stephanie. I plan to continue my relationship with Stephanie and her team. I do not hesitate to recommend her to friends, my family and others in our retirement community.

Extremely informative, friendly and one of the best guest speakers that we have had the pleasure of spending time with

Ms. Schneider joined our South Florida Multiple Sclerosis Society Zoom Meeting and spoke to a very curious crowd of disabled adults. We were very worried about COVID and learned how the preparations that we could make now, would directly affect who had the ability to make medical decisions for each one of us, if incapacitated. Ms. Schneider was extremely informative, friendly and one of the best guest speakers that we have had the pleasure of spending time with. We are very thankful of the generosity that she showed with her time, professionalism and patience with our group.

She is #1 in this field

I worked with Stephanie Schneider for about 6 years….my wife suffers from Alzheimers Disease.

After a detailed search I went to Stephanie…my Financial Advisor, my regular lawyer, my Medical Doctor ALL said to go to Stephanie…she is #1 in this field. Planning for the future ( 6 years ago ) was very detailed and time consuming…many many hours of paper work. My wife has been in a nursing home for 5 years…everything has been taken care of satisfactorily by Stephanie. I would tell anyone needing similar help or any kind of future life planning to call Stephanie…her staff is also excellent…always a big help to me…never had a problem with the office.

A remarkable resource and a great asset to her community and the legal profession

During the past several years, I have had the privilege of attending numerous webinars presented by Stephanie Schneider. Stephanie is an outstanding Board Certified Elder Law Attorney with many years of experience practicing in the field of law. She is also an excellent communicator, who has the rare ability to share her vast knowledge in easy to understand language. Each of her webinar presentations has been meticulously prepared and organized. The power point slides which accompany each of her presentations are precise and thorough. Her professionalism, expertise, compassion, caring, commitment to her clients and the legal profession shine through every time I watch her teach. I always feel that I have learned something new when I hear Stephanie speak. More importantly, I am able to retain much of the information she imparts because of the kind and gracious manner in which she presents this important material. I am grateful that Stephanie so freely shares her expertise with others. She is a remarkable resource and a great asset to her community and the legal profession.

Stephanie listened to my Mother and I with patience and compassion.

Our relationship with the Law Office of Stephanie Schneider began twelve years ago. She came highly recommended for knowledge and skills on probate. Stephanie listened to my Mother and I with patience and compassion. She made a very difficult period in our lives easier. Due to her professionalism, expertise and diligence, and that of her staff; my Mother chose Stephanie to handle her estate planning. I would highly recommend the Law Office of Stephanie Schneider, P.A. to those seeking an experienced, compassionate and knowledgeable elder attorney.

My family is so grateful to Stephanie for her expertise and her dedication to those she serves

Stephanie Schneider P.A. has been my mother and father’s elder law attorney for the last few years. Stephanie has guided my parents, with all of their planning and legal documents, as they moved from a single family home to a Care and Retirement Community. Recently, during the covid pandemic, Stephanie was able to help my family obtain therapeutic leave for my mother, who resides in the care center. After a year of lockdown, I was able to take my mother out of the center and bring her to my home for overnight stays. These visits with mom have meant so much to her and to me and my father. My family is so grateful to Stephanie for her expertise and her dedication to those she serves.

Choosing Ms. Schneider was one of the best business decisions I’ve ever made

I had seen Ms. Schneider present at the South Florida Alzheimer’s Conference. She spoke so sincerely and authoritatively that I felt certain this was one person I could trust to walk me through the maze of laws and procedures and documents I would need to help me with preparing for my parents’ elder care and estate planning, as well as our own, especially given the complexity of planning for our disabled daughter’s future care without us. Being organizationally disabled myself (if only it were a joke), this was no easy task for us or for Ms. Schneider. It took months, stretching into more than a year for me to gather all the papers necessary, with frequent progress assessments by phone, e-mail and in-person. When it came time for the final signing of all the documents, she took great care explain in meticulous detail the implications of each document, sometimes several times. One of the reasons I had put off getting an attorney was my dread of feeling totally helpless and at the mercy of a professional who knew I knew nothing about her area of expertise. Choosing Ms. Schneider was one of the best business decisions I’ve ever made.

Excellent lawyer

I hired Mrs. Schneider for a guardianship case after I was disappointed with two other lawyers I had before.

Mrs Schneider is a responsible, honest, punctual attorney. She managed to guide me thru the bureaucratic and legal maze of the guardianship requirements. She has excellent clarity and knowledge of the law. Her fees are very fair and clear. She promptly addressed any questions I had, we discussed directions and strategy for tackling issues and she is following this strategy. Her team of paralegals is also outstanding.

The service of this office has been a godsend to us and I highly recommend them

Our relationship with this firm go’s back 4 years. We realized then that my wife’s medical problems would inevitable result in her requiring long term care. While we had saved over the years and had a modest nest egg we knew that it would not last long in long term care. After visiting with Stephanie, she set up a program to restructure our assets in a way to protect them and allow my wife to apply to Medicaid. Throughout the process, Stephanie and her staff guided us thru the process and were always available to answer any questions we had and process all the forms that were required by the various agencies. The service of this office has been a godsend to us and I highly recommend them.

I feel assured of her good services

On the advice of a good friend I sought Ms. Schneider’s service to prepare legal documents for me and my husband. She advised us well concerning a trust, possible need for assisted living, a will and other papers needed to prepare for our elder years. Since she prepared the needed papers, my husband has passed but as we had successfully prepared our trust, his passing did not necessitate additional legal work I know other legal concerns will probably occur in my future and I feel assured of her good services.
