A separate 'thank you' to those who addressed the 'tax-payer' comment. For some, it is acceptable for corporations ("corporations are people, my friends") to exploit tax loopholes but ordinary flesh and blood people are demonized for it.
Not necessarily. I don't have high regard for some politicians and some corporate tax guys either.

There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that a qualified attorney (elder law and taxes) can be of enormous benefit to midnighter777.
I have to say that my experiences with lawyers have also been positive, for the most part. I may be biased though; I get fringe benefits from the lawyer I live with - DW.
