“I had some difficulty finding an attorney to represent me in an appeal to MO Healthnet to reverse their inappropriate/illegal actions. Northland Elder Law agreed to represent me and the issue was resolved to my satisfaction at a reasonable cost.”


"I was very satisfied with the preparation of legal work you did for us! Especially that you were aware we would need a face sheet for the POA! That one page saved us $65 when we had it recorded in Jackson County! Thank you so much!  Wishing you and Northland Elder Law the best."

-Nancy and Val L.

"We're so happy to have found Kara! She pointed out so many things that we had never thought of and made the whole estate planning process clear and easy. Thank you so much."

-Mavis A.

"My experience with Kara and the Northland Elder Law team was excellent. She was very good at explaining everything and giving options as to how to handle things to best protect my mother's assets. I would recommend her to anyone that needs help with aging parents."

-Rachel T.

"Impressive experience with Northland Elder Law. They were professional knowledgeable and kind. Definitely advocating for our best interest while helping my family navigate an unfamiliar situation. Our family highly recommends Northland Elder Law."

-Amy W.

"Northland Elder Law is a group of law professionals that have helped my husband and I in the past and just recently. Such documents as Living Wills, Durable Power of Attorneys, and Health Care POA. We have the upmost confidence in their knowledge and services!"

-Nancy N.

"There is considerable misinformation regarding the Medicaid application process that if blindly followed can impoverish a healthy spouse when the other becomes seriously ill. Kara and Chris worked out the details for a great Medicaid plan that allowed my 89 yr old aunt to continue living independently at home while her incapacitated husband is cared for in a long term care facility. Northland Elder Law brought them peace and security during a tragic and stressful time in their lives. If you find yourself in a similar situation that is vaporizing your life savings we recommend contacting Northland Elder Law."


"We are so glad that we made an appointment to meet with Kara at Northland Elder Law. We not only had questions because of our age and a recent injury. Kara was extremely knowledgeable on how we can successfully retain our assets if the future requires one of us to go to a nursing home. She made sure that all of our vital documents were in order. This gave us peace of mind."

-Judy N.

"Kara Burgess and her staff were so helpful and informative with estate planning and creating our will. We would definitely recommend their services!"

-Dana S.

"Kara & her staff have been so easy to work with. Kara took the fear of how to handle a sudden shift to Medicaid & protecting assets! SO thankful to have found this office!"
