We had a very informative session with Mr. Jacoby to learn more about how to prepare your will to cover all your bases and avoid probate. I feel relieved that my preparation will allow my will to be carried out with a lot of a lot of unnecessary steps. Mr. Jacoby answered all my questions to my satisfaction. I would recommend his services to anyone looking to prepare a last Will and Testament.

Don C.

I really appreciate all your help and everything you’ve done for my father and I and supporting us and working with us through all the aspects of his guardianship.

Tonisha P.

Where do I begin? Compassion, Grit, Tenacity, Workethic, professional, are only a few of the words I would begin to describe Attorney Jacoby and his team, more specifically in my case Ms. Marcano. Any questions, concerns, were always responded to quickly and with full detail by Mr. Jacoby or his team. I have an extremely difficult and challenging situation, but Attorney Jacoby has always been patient and will do whatever is needed to help. They really do care and do their best to assist as if it was their own personal case. I cannot say enough how highly I recommend them; I would tell you if you are considering using them or notdo not waiveryou won’t regret it! I am extremely grateful for their grace and the blessing they are for my child and myself. Five stars all the way if I could give them more I would!!

Roni J.

“I could not have coped with this process without the assistance and counseling given to me at Mr. Jacoby’s law office.”

Your handling of our parents estate was nothing short of stellar. Myself and my brothers, Fil and Geoff, were blessed to have found you and sought your counsel.

Lisa D.

You are seriously the most amazing person in the world. I seriously don’t know what I would do with it you!


I just wanted to reach out and let you that how much I appreciate your help and kindness throughout this entire process. It was a pleasure meeting you today and it means the world to me how sympathetic and kindhearted you were. Thank you again for everything. God bless!

I retained David in order to marshal my aunt and my mother’s estates and qualify them for Medicaid so I could placed them in a nursing home.

I am a retired attorney but was not aware of the legal requirements and unusual legal avenues to accomplish the above.

During my first meeting with David he explained to me the Florida Medicaid regulations in their minute details and his explanations and professionalism infused in me a total trust for him.

He went as far as going with me to the nursing home where my aunt was recovering from an injury in order to explain to her what he was trying to accomplish and then his capable staff went to see my aunt in order to execute the proper documentation. This brought out David’s caring for the less fortunate and his unbelievable human decency.

In the end all that we set out to accomplish was successfully brought to be and I have no words to thank David, Kathy, and other members of his staff that so diligently and patiently took me through this and the follow up work that ensued.

Now I not only have an attorney but I also made some new friends.

I would have no hesitation to recommend David and his capable staff to anyone needing help in his areas of expertise.


We have used David for two familys and could not be more pleased!!! The man has a wealth of knowledge that is unbelievable. We are more than pleased.
Jim M.

I definitely recommend David Jacoby. He listened to our problems dealing with our mom who needed long term care and immediately had solutions for us. His staff was so helpful and knowledgeable in keeping track and working with us to get all the paperwork needed so that we could get our mom taken care of. Thank you to the entire Jacoby team for being there for our family. – Indian Harbour Beach, FL

Elder Law Advocate David H. Jacoby, P.A. has kindly made himself available to help us on short notice more than once, for timely counsel regarding Dad’s estate planning and an urgent Medicaid application. He brings a broad range of specialties to the equation causing us to come away from the table feeling comforted, confident and encouraged. Thank you Mr. Jacoby for all you’ve done to help us care for Dad in the best possible way. He’s worked hard his whole life, usually with multiple jobs at one time, and now when he’s 93, knowing you are in our corner to help us navigate the complex and confusing regulations and applications to ensure he is well cared for has been, and continues to be, an incredible blessing. We are so thankful for you.

Lynda H.

I am so glad l chose to go with David Jacoby as my attorney. This firm is so very helpful l was never left out in any situation. Kathy Smeltz was there for me through the whole process getting my husband on Medicaid. If you’re looking for the best attorney don’t look any further.

Karen S.

The best in Elder Law planning in the entire Melbourne Florida area by far and his staff, particularly Ms. K. Clark is very knowledgeable, courteous, and professional. Their entire team is the Best by Far in their area of practice!!!
Philip W.

Eldercare feels so complicated to the average person. What a relief to have someone to turn to that has the answers and leads the way. Mr. Jacoby and his support staff are warm and friendly and make the difficult easy. They lead you step by step which was so needed.

Fast, easy, fair price! Mr Jacoby & Paul helped me & my family with all our final preparations needs. Wonderfully kind & caring. -Ronda K.
Ronda K.

I am very thankful for placing my trust in David H Jacoby and Kathy Smeltz, his Medicaid Assistant.

David and Kathy were extremely helpful guiding my family through each step along a most challenging medical and financial path.  They worked tirelessly and patiently with me; clearly explaining what documents were needed for us to proceed in a timely manner.

What was most amazing was that Kathy Smeltz traveled outside her office; she was at my side to explain and get new documents signed by my bedridden brother at a Nursing Home.  I would highly recommend this Law Office. 


I highly recommend David Jacoby. Mr. Jacoby and his staff are excellent! They helped me navigate all the requirements of obtaining power of attorney and medical surrogacy. for my mother. Kathy was very kind and responsive, she promptly returned calls and answered all my questions. I don’t know what I would do without them. 
Lavinia M.

I contacted David in late August 2019 to inquire how to have my 94 year old mother be able to receive long term nursing care. He met with me on the same day and explained the process of obtaining Medicaid approval. On September 1st my mother entered a long term facility after having met with Karen (David’s legal assistant) who processed all the necessary forms, worked with the facility and obtained from Medicaid approval. We could not have navigated the process without the help of David’s firm. Thanks to him and Karen for a great job!
Bob F.

My experience with the David Jacoby Law Firm was unbelievable. They helped us with our elderly aunt prior to going into a nursing home. We knew nothing about the process and had no idea where to start. They were right there beside us the whole way. The whole office was nothing but kind and helpful but there was one special employee who went above and beyond to help us. Kathy S is the kindest, most patient and encouraging person that we have ever had the privilege to know. She personally helped us through a difficult situation and was always there to offer encouragement with a cheerful attitude and friendly voice.  She encouraged me when I was discouraged.   I always looked forward to calling her with the news that I had completed a step in the process. She always got so excited when I made progress and had something new to report. I now consider her my friend am forever grateful to her and the David Jacoby Law Firm. 
Ellen and Paul W.

Denise C.

I want to express my sincere thanks to David and his associates. He helped my mother, my sister and me with all our legal issues. His firm has kept us fully informed about and throughout the different areas of our lives. Thank you and we will be in touch when our family needs an excellent law firm again. 

Jacqueline F.

“Five STARS without doubt. The Jacoby Firm was there for us every step of the process, beginning to end. Special thanks to Margot Cronk for all her hard work and support.”

Richard B.

“David and his team have been amazing! From the moment I first talked with David, he took on my problem and crafted a solution that has worked perfectly for our family. Moreover, his team has been incredibly responsive and available for multiple engagements, deep dives into data, and complex strategy discussions as we worked to craft the best solution for our situation. They are the best and if I could give 10-stars, I would do it!

We were in crisis mode. Dad had advanced Parkinsons and Mom was in a major car accident and I lived out of town. David and his team helped me immensely to get Mom and Dad access to Medicaid support in record time. I was amazed at how quickly and efficiently it all worked! Moreover, David’s deep expertise and strategic acumen helped me put in place all the right tools to provide and protect our family for the long term. They were always available to me and their counsel was always spot on!

David’s team of support staff is incredible! When I was trying to wade through hundreds of documents and processes, they came along side and helped me get all the documentation in order to get the support my parent’s needed. Whenever I had a question, they were responsive. Their counsel and guidance was always superb. I am so glad I found David and his team. I don’t know what I would have done without them.”

Mark B.

“We have the utmost respect for David Jacoby and his Associates. They did an outstanding job helping us with a very difficult Guardianship and Estate Closing. I would like to especially acknowledge Nicole Taylor and Ashley Russell who both stayed on top of the mountain of paperwork that was required to finalize these cases. David helped us well before this became a Guardianship matter and then an Estate matter by trying to set up alternative avenues for my Mother’s Estate Planning before it became a court matter. “

Edward J.

“Long term care can be a very scary issue to handle if you are not sure of what you are doing. I was going through that for my mother’s care. Fortunately, I had a meeting with Attorney David Jacoby and all my fears were put to ease. Attorney David Jacoby handled all my mother’s issues and took the weight of the world off my shoulders. I found Attorney David Jacoby and staff to be professional, compassionate and easily accessible.”

Dawn C.

“I am truly grateful to Mr. Jacoby for his knowledge in Medicaid process. He and his assistants are very helpful and made me comfortable when they explained what was to be done.

The paralegal are wonderful and right there to help with any questions or needs. David Jacoby has so much knowledge and is so caring. I am very grateful to him.”

Gretchen H.

“Nothing but praise for Mr. Jacoby + staff. They helped every step of the way and when we met with the Medicaid officers they were with us and had the answers to their questions. Plus, they saved my mother quite a bit of money in the process.”

“During the illness and death of my husband, David Jacoby was the greatest help and I couldn’t have made it without his help. Always a pleasure and ready to help. I’d recommend him to anyone needing help in the field.” – Thanks


“Thank you for all your help while going through such a difficult time!”

Diane, Joan, and Billy S.

“Thank you, Mr. Jacoby, for all that you have done.”

“We feel very fortunate to have benefited from David’s expertise when we really needed it. His advice and support of his professional staff made a very difficult and emotional period in our lives doable. It gave us the “education” we needed to fulfill the wishes of our loved ones.”

“I have had an still have a very good and excellent appreciation of this firm. I have referred others to this attorney and still will refer clients. You were very helpful and always available. Thank you for being there and all of your staff was the greatest. Thank you.”

Anne C.

“I was certainly pleased with Mr. Jacoby’s assistance with my dad’s financial matters. He saved us a lot of headaches and money.”

Canoy S..

“I knew the result would be beneficial by having Mr. Jacoby. However, there were times when the process was confusing on the subject matter the state requires for Medicaid.”

“I live in New York and needed to set up my mother in an nursing home and apply for Medicaid while maintaining my business. David Jacoby and his staff saved my life. They are the finest group of people and professionals I have ever worked with. They were on top of our case at every turn and solved all the issues that came up. Everyone at the firm I helpful and pleasant. If they worked with you, you will be very pleased.”

Sincerely, Wendy F.

“I only wish they would move to NY – I have many referrals!”

“Medicaid and the laws associated with Medicaid are complicated and cumbersome to someone who doesn’t deal with it frequently. Your office staff’s guidance through this process was much appreciated. The staff’s kindness and compassion was much appreciated. Additionally, the business ethics of the office are top notch. Thank you all for helping our family deal with this process.”

“I believe Mr. Jacoby to be very sincere and concerned with my individual situations and challenges, and worked patiently until each was satisfactorily resolved ñ and I completely understood the process.”

We had our will and trust docs updated there. No probs. 
James C.

“David H. Jacoby is the best attorney in the world!! I really, really mean it. He is a genius in the field and I would recommend him in every instance of Medicaid planning. Not only is he capable, but he is a caring and compassionate human being. He was there for me from probate to Medicaid. He also got a favorable ruling for me when I field for guardianship fees, etc. He is the BEST!!”


Barbara M.

“David, you are the best and I would tell anyone about you.”


Phyllis B.

“The Paralegals are extremely helpful and always returned my calls promptly. We couldn’t have done it without their help after the initial visit with Mr. Jacoby. Thank you for all your help.”


“I worked with a paralegal that was so helpful and knowledgeable. She must have devoted her time to me only. I was happy that I engaged David Jacoby’s firm to assist me with my application to Medicaid. I could not have completed all the paperwork that had to be sent to Medicaid without their help. I recommend them highly.


Mildred G.

“Whenever a question came up, David H. Jacoby was there to answer it.”


“Mr. Jacoby was most helpful in expediting our urgent request. He was also very responsive when I ran into problems with the Medicaid office. It was a very positive and successful experience.”


“He was a great help.”


“Very professional! They were able to direct me in choosing the qualities to look for in a nursing home. Because of their help, I was able to get my mother into a highly rated facility. I feel that their help enabled me to go thru the process a lot quicker and easier than I would have be able to do on my own.  They also assisted me in obtaining Medicaid Assistance. Again, quicker and easier than I could possibly do alone.

They still continue to follow up on my case and all inquiries are answered within a day or so. Having gone through this process, I would never recommend trying it on your own.”

Ronald L.

“I could not have taken care of my mother’s affairs and gotten her on Medicaid without the help and guidance of David Jacoby and his staff. Thank you for helping me through a difficult time.”

“Explained procedures thoroughly and in “Plain English”. High regards and continued business.”

Janet F.

“I considered myself extremely fortunate to attend a seminar conducted by attorney Jacoby and by using the legal services regarding Medicaid that he and his staff assisted me with. I highly recommend Mr. Jacoby, and have on many occasions. I feel like he was my saving grace in a very tumultuous time in my life dealing with my husband’s illness, obtaining Medicaid, and all other legal services he performed. David Jacoby is one of the only attorneys I know who actually listens to you and your problem and then advises you how to solve your legal issues in a timely, caring, knowledgeable way.”


Eileen M.

“My daughter was with me sometimes, but when she wasn’t we found it very helpful to conference her in by phone. All in all it was a positive experience.”


“We were very satisfied with the services of the firm. If not for your help, the health system would have gone through my mother’s meager savings in two months, leaving nothing for unforeseen expenses or for funeral expenses.”


“I have already recommended David Jacoby to a half dozen of my friends and acquaintances and they have given me positive feedback.”

“I could never have gotten through the first months without all of you. My deep appreciation to all.”

“Mr. Jacoby and staff were very helpful and trustworthy. I highly recommend them.”

Marilyn G.

“I and my wife were very satisfied with the help and advice that Mr. Jacoby and his staff provided for us. I also know if my mother were still alive that she would personally thank him. I would certainly recommend to anyone.”

P.S. Mr. Jacoby explained in layman language that I could easily understand.

Herbert W.

“David – many, many thanks.”

Bob L.

“I was so grateful that attorney Jacoby and his associates had a Medicaid seminar that my husband and I attended because we learned several things that the Medicaid people and nursing home personnel do not tell you about.”

“David Jacoby was both forthright and straightforward in his information disbursement.”

“Whenever I would receive a letter and didn’t understand it, they were always quick to respond and explain it. I’m very pleased with their service.”

“I first thought the fee was high, but after the amount of work involved, I felt it was a fair price.”

“I could not have coped with this process without the assistance and counseling given to me at Mr. Jacoby’s law office.”

“Mr. Jacoby is one of those people as soon as you meet him you know you’re in good hands. He and his entire team have helped me navigate through the very difficult process of getting Medicaid for my husband due to a sudden illness. He’s very knowledgeable in his field of Elder Law, as well as many other aspects of the law to ensure my husband would be very well taken care of. Kind, considerate, honest and very caring are just a few words to describe the entire Jacoby Law Office organization… they made my life bearable through a very difficult period and I will be forever grateful.”


“David Jacoby kindly, generously, and proficiently helped me through a challenging time when I was diagnosed with stage IV lymphoma and had some potential issues in getting the help I needed because of a complex situation in my finances. He worked hard and quickly to enable me to receive the help and services I needed so that I was able to relax and heal. I cannot say enough about his dilligence, care and compassion. I highly recommend him.”

Marsha V.

I have dealt with Mr Jacoby and his staff for almost 10 years until my Dad’s passing. For one fee he protected my Dad’s interests, helped us navigate thru all the governments” documents, helped us in POA’s change of wills, etc.

For the last 10 years of my Dad’s life he lived very comfortably, I had no worries about about his affairs or his care. The Jacoby team made my life and my Dad’s life peaceful.

In other words – I highly recommend them.”

Brad P.

“I was referred to David Jacoby when my father passed un-expectedly and my mom moved in. He has been there to advise and help for all our legal needs. His entire office is wonderful as well, and if you leave a message they get right back to you. I have already recommended him to a several co-workers and will continue to do so.”

Kim K.

“We just completed our Trust /Will with Mr. Jacoby and he had immediately made us feel comfortable with his caring, understanding, and at ease personality. We felt more like we were speaking to a knowledgeable friend or family member than an Attorney we just met.

He addressed all of our concerns with great professionalism and kind thoughtfulness. He especially gave us peace in regards to a future plan for our mentally disabled adult daughter, should we not be able to, or no longer be around to care for her. Having her as a responsibility has burdened us with the worry if our wishes would be honored, as to where we want her to go to live and be cared for after we are no longer available to care for her. The weight of this burden has been lifted, thanks to Mr.Jacoby’s extra thoughtful attention to this concern and making sure we had a legal plan in hand. We are deeply grateful to Mr. Jacoby and his staff for this gift of peace.

I highly recommend Mr. Jacoby for any final Estate planning and/or future placement arrangements for a family member with mentally incompetent disabilities. We truly feel blessed that we were lead to him. God bless Mr. Jacoby, and his staff.”

Charlotte R.

“I recently hired Mr. Jacoby to handle some estate issues that I was dealing with. Unfortunately, I was dealing with some unscrupulous and nefarious characters on the other side. Mr. Jacoby laid out a plan and provided extremely valuable, professional insight into the facts of this case. His professionalism reassured me as the legal challenges mounted . He persevered and doggedly fought for me. Mr. Jacoby was extremely communicative with me through the whole process and I came to understand his legal knowledge and demeanor were second to none. His office was also always responsive to my needs. The resolution of this case was very favorable to me. There is no doubt this is a result of Mr. Jacoby’s legal skills and his ethical and bull-doggedness approach to obtaining a favorable resolution. I highly, highly recommend him and his staff!”

Sandy P.

Took my elderly father for an appointment to get his affairs in order. Straight forward advice and no pressure. Really has the clients best interest at heart.

Richard W.

“I really enjoy working with David. I have never worked with a lawyer that was so quick to get back with me. He is amazing that way! He is incredibly knowledgeable and very dedicated to those he helps. I appreciate him immensely and would not hesitate to refer him!”

Kelly S.

David has been my attorney for wills probate and helping with the death of my husband for years. I honestly wouldn’t go to anyone but him. Many many years with him. He’s knowledgeable , helpful but extremely caring. He’s the best

Lynn C.

“I want to thank Mr Jacoby and his staff for supporting me through a difficult time with my Father. Mr Jacoby absolutely cares about his clients that he takes care of them. He is very knowledgeable about the law, and will definitely lead you in the right direction. I feel very grateful that I have obtained him as my lawyer. I would highly recommend him to anyone dealing with elder law.”

Denise R.

Mr. Jacoby and his staff are excellent! They helped us navigate all the requirements of obtaining power of attorney and medical surrogacy for my mother. Thank you David and team.


“Mr. Jacoby and his legal team expedited all paperwork in order to get our trust, will, etc. done when my husband was diagnosed with cancer and had less than a month to live. They also assisted me 5 years later with an issue I had with Chase Bank. I highly recommend this firm as they were exactly what we needed.”


David and his staff did an excellent job providing me with needed legal services. He was very professional, effectively communicated my options and completed the work in a timely fashion. David made me feel very comfortable and clearly explained each step in the process.


“We are eternally grateful to Mr. Jacoby and his staff. They have followed up on our mom’s progress and continue to communicate with us. I would urge anyone who needs help or advise with elderly care to contact Mr. Jacoby.”

Chris and Susan

Mr Jacoby was very Clear an detailed about the service he would provide for us and was exactly what we requested. We were assigned to his assistant Alexia who was a tremendous help she was always available to help us with questions she was very organized and did a through job for us.

Brenda B.

“Mr. Jacoby took his time (over 2 Hours) to cover every detail of my husbands challenges. He answered every question honestly and professionally. He put a complete program together for us to aid in getting my husband taken care of. His employees were and continue to be very caring and helpful. If possible I would add a plus to the 5 stars.”


I would like to start by saying several months ago I was in a hopeless situation with my step dad. The medical bills were pilling up and the bank account was running dry. It was then that I was referred to Mr. Jacoby and his law office for assistance. I knew that everything that needed to be done was way beyond what I was capable of doing myself. I needed someone with experience and most of all a plan of execution to get our family to a point where we didn’t go broke with the mounting medical expenses. No words can explain how satisfied our family is now or have been with the care and effort we have received form Mr. Jacoby and his hard working staff. I would highly recomend his law office over any other when it comes to the matters of elderly care.


“The experience at David Jacoby’s law office was outstanding for me and all of the family members to whom he provided service. We originally visited his office to work out a Medicaid issue for my grandmother. After such a positive experience, my mother, my siblings, and I have all utilized his services. David Jacoby has breadth and depth of experience, which results in an incredible knowledge of the law, finances, and all associated issues. Moreover, he took the time to understand our individual situation and guide us through the best course of action for our specific situation. Ironically, the best course of action was not what we preconceived. David Jacoby showed us a better process which was more financially sound. He is by far the most intelligent and competent attorney I have encountered. This, coupled with his compassion, makes him the best in the business. In addition, the staff at David Jacoby’s office are equally outstanding. I worked closely with Paul Withrow, his office administrator. Mr. Withrow also took the time with me before I signed and executed the documents to ensure I understood each aspect of each document, and he provided guidance to the portions where I needed assistance. He was patient, knowledgeable, and professional. Without reservation, I give my highest recommendation to David Jacoby and his team.”


I would highly recommend Mr. Jacoby and his entire team. My father entrusted his and my mother’s elder care and family trust legal matters with Mr. Jacoby years ago and it was an excellent decision. Mr. Jacoby was there for us as a family during the years between both of my parents passing and then again to navigate the distribution of assets. Mr. Jacoby did an excellent job advising the trust executor and his staff provided quick support whenever needed.


“Not only has David given me the information I need, he takes the time to make sure I understand it. David has flawlessly handled all of my Father’s ongoing medicaid situations. During these anxiety producing times David remains the calm in the storm. If you are trying to care for a loved one and feel as though you are in over your head I absolutely recommend that you call him.”


When we needed a place to turn to, Mr Jacoby and staff came thru for us and helped lead us on the path of Medicaid/Medicare & all the officials that go with it. Can’t thank them enough!


“We were incapable of cutting through all of the red tape regarding Medicare, the mountain of documentation, the various requirements when we realized we needed professional help. Mr. Jacoby was recommended to us by someone, and I had heard numerous positive comments regarding his attention to detail and concern for his clients.”


David is a very caring, professional, understanding, and passionate attorney. He walked me through many very complex issues during a very difficult time for me and my family. David’s staff is also second to none, outstanding individuals. I am extremely satisfied with how everything was handled, as well as the outcome.


“Discovering the complications of aging I needed professional help. Mr. Jacoby and his paralegal Mr. Cason took me patiently step by step through the process of estate planning and located the contact for my pension. I was more than pleased and thankful for their knowledge and patience.”


“My Mother began working with Mr. Jacoby in 2009. He and his staff helped with every aspect of her long term care plans including appropriate health care directives, power of attorney, trust accounts and Medicaid Certification. Because of Mr. Jacoby’s knowledge of Florida Elder Law her Medicaid certification was completed and approved within a few months. The Medicaid certification allowed her to immediately obtain critical home care and services through the Nursing Home Diversion program. Because of those services she was able to remain at home with her family for several years.

Eventually, as her health declined, she moved into an Assisted Living facility, then Hospice care, and in early 2015 into a Nursing Home. We have worked with Mr. Jacoby and his knowledgeable staff since 2009. At each transition of care, David and his staff never failed to promptly assist us. Without their help we would have experienced many delays.

Most recently, we experienced an issue which could have affected her care in the Nursing Home. Based on his contacts and experience this issue was resolved within twenty four hours. It has been a real pleasure working with Mr. Jacoby and his staff these past six years. I know I could not have done this without his help. He is a caring advocate for elder care.”


Mr. Jacoby is extremely knowledgeable regarding all aspects of properly planning for Medicaid. I worked with his team and my direct agent was Margot who is fantastic.

My case was complex and had many components that all had to work before applying. After hiring Mr. Jacoby in early August we were ready to apply by Mid November.

The application was so perfectly executed that the application was accepted in a few days and on DEC. 22 Margot called me to say that my mom was now covered by Medicaid. A marvelous Christmas Present indeed. If you are reading this do not hesitate in hiring Mr. Jacoby.

It will be the best decision you could ever make in properly planning your parents care without wiping out their life savings. It was the best money I ever spent. I feel such peace of mind now and my mom is happy at her Long Term Care Facility. They treat their residents in a caring and respectful manner. I could not have accomplished this without Mr. Jacoby and Margot.”


I hired Dave and his team to help me apply for medicaid for my 88 year old father they walked me through the entire process as it is very complicated. I found Dave and his team to be brilliant at what they do they always go the extra yard. They covered every aspect in detail not just the basics. I cannot imagine anyone anywhere having a better team than Dave Jacoby has assembled.


“Walked us through every step so far! He and staff have responded quickly and thoroughly throughout as needed. They informed all of the family members as needed and made everyone feel at ease! They definitely made a tough situation bearable.


“My parents became clients of David Jacoby in 2010 after attending a seminar that he conducted. He took care of wills, trusts and Medicaid planning for them, among other things. Mr. Jacoby is knowledgeable and dedicated. He has always responded quickly to both emails and phone calls and goes beyond the call of duty to assist in whatever way he can. He is a kind man who truly cares about his clients.

My parents have been through some difficult circumstances and I don’t know how we would have managed without David Jacoby’s help and support. He is an excellent attorney and has become a trusted friend. We would highly recommend his services to anyone.”


“I recently worked with David and his staff. Through their diligent work we were able to place my wife in long-term care where she peacefully spent the last 6 months of her life. Without their services we would not have been able to accomplish this feat. The team is extremely professional, caring about all personal issues, and very supportive throughout the whole process. Their follow-up and continuing services have been very beneficial throughout the process. I thank them for their assistance and would gladly recommend them to others.


I was referred to Mr. Jacoby by Steve Houser, Financial Adviser to obtain Medicaid benefits for my mother. Jennifer was my caseworker who has been more than helpful and very patient through the Medicaid process. They were able to provide me answers as needed. Mr. Jacoby’s staff have been very kind and helpful, I would definitely use them


“My experiences throughout the years have been Great with David H. Jacoby. His experience and professionalism is 100%. Attorney Jacoby and his entire Staff are Truly Caring people. They have Expert Experience and work very hard for my Family. We are very thankful to have David H. Jacoby as our Attorney!


Mr. Jacoby was initially hired by my dad for help with my mom. When it was time for my dad to consider other living arrangements I went to Mr. Jacoby for help. Mr. Jacoby and his staff were very accommodating, and spent many hours explaining what my options were. He researched and produced many documents pertaining to my Dad’s situation, and offered his expert advice. Thanks, Mr Jacoby. I could not have done it by myself. A job well done.


“Mr. Jacoby very knowledgeable in his field to suggest multiple options in handling my mother’s situation. He brought forward different courses of action to implement in handling her assets to maintain Medicaid Eligibility. He had expert knowledge to all rules for Medicaid and the Florida Constitution, and how that would effect her. Our review was done in a quick manor, and I found clarity in Mr. Jacoby’s legal outline of the choices to maintain Medicaid coverage. I would definitely recommend him to anyone going through a similar situation in regards to Medicaid Benefits. He put my mind at ease so I would not make the wrong decisions. He made me feel comfortable when I asked questions. I would highly recommend him as an elder law / Medicaid attorney.


We have received top notch treatment from David Jacoby and his staff. At first, we thought my sister-in-law would not qualify for Medicaid because she had too many assets and would have to spend it all in order to qualify. After the consultation, we gained a new perspective on the processes of Medicaid. The firm worked quickly, and efficiently while informing us every step of the way for the Medicaid Application. Before, there was a maze of mis-information and total confusion from other sources. Special thanks to Josh who assisted with the case from start to finish, couldn’t have been able to do it without Mr. Jacoby and his staff! Now, my sister-in-law is getting financial assistance in a nursing home and his firm will take care of future re-certifications.


“In 2004, my father and I were referred to Mr. Jacoby from two different relatives. We attended the seminar and were very impressed and made an appointment that week. He was very professional and did an amazing job helping qualify my mother for Medicaid before my dad went bankrupt. He charge a flat-fee for all the work that he did regarding my mother living in the nursing home. Whenever we called, he answered us immediately and advised us what to do. He helped us in any situation that arose. When my father unexpectedly died, he took care of everything in his estate. I would recommend him to anyone looking for an excellent lawyer, when you ask him a question he knows the answer immediately. He handled their Trust and investments preserving them from the significant cost of Nursing Home care.


David and his Staff were retained by my family at the last minute to handle a complicated case in a short period of time which they did with ease. While we were nervous, David and his Staff were not and far exceeded our expectations bringing the matter to a resolution that we were comfortable with.


“I was very happy with the services provided by Attorney David Jacoby under the circumstances. I hired his firm a about two years ago to assist with my wife’s Medicaid application. I am satisfied with the services his firm provided, and with Jennifer who worked on my case and answered any question I had along the way.


He and his office staff are very knowledgeable and helpful. They have been here for me with my Mother’s affairs; and especially since her passing. I highly recommend them.


“I’ve known David since he first started his practice. He is ethical and kind.

“David Jacoby and his team have provided exemplary services to me and my family for four generations my grandmother’s estate, my mother’s estate, my and my son’s estate. He is clearly an experienced lawyer and possesses the wisdom and expertise to proficiently advise on all areas. We have used his firm for a range of services over the yearsnursing home and longterm care planning, estate planning, guardianship, probate, wills, trusts, power of attorney, healthcare surrogate, and more. Additionally, therehave been emergency situations when I have needed an extremely fast turnaround, and I have consistently received sound legal advice in record time. I have continuously chosen to consult with him, even when I have been stationed in other parts of the world because there is no attorney I trust more. He has proven time and again, in every situation, that he puts people first. He takes the time to explain all options and ensures that I understand and can make an informed decision. He genuinely cares about the outcome, and it is apparent that he is passionate about what he does. His team is also extremely highly knowledgeable, and their compassion matches his. I have only had positive experiences with every one of his staff members. It has been a true pleasure and privilege to work with David Jacoby and his entire team. There is no other attorney that I would choose or trust more; transparency, ethics, value, and the highest level of personalized expertise this is what you get when you visit David JacobyElder Law Advocate, P.A.”
