Several years ago, an unreasonable lawsuit was filed against me and my family. I hired Mr. Gilbert Vara, Jr. to represent my case, and that decision is one of the most important ones I have made in my life. Mr. Vara and his very capable Legal Assistant, Krystin Pechacek, treated me in the most professionally proficient manner, handling matters on time and always corresponding with me, while maintaining a friendly and approachable relationship.
Then, when the time came to take the deposition of the person who filed the lawsuit, Mr. Vara questioned her with dignity and professionalism. I was impressed by this man who I would definitely call a Gentleman. I’m happy to say that Mr. Vara won this lawsuit for me. Therefore, I would highly recommend the law firm of Gilbert Vara to anyone, and should the need arise, I will call him again.
When dealing with legal matters such as divorce, my expectations were to keep it as simple and as stress-free as possible. Gilbert Vara certainly made that happen. Gilbert sat with me upfront and went through the details of my situation in order to fully understand my needs as well as what I should expect from him.
He took time to discuss my case, and also took time to understand me personally. Gilbert was very clear in laying out a plan for my benefit, how the matter will proceed and finally come to a close. I was able to talk through anything I did not understand and he and his staff were very helpful keeping me updated with the progress of my case. Finally, the case came to a close as simply as possible and without surprises.

It does not, however, provide information on extra benefits that Medicare Advantage plans may offer that Original Medicare does not, such as certain vision, hearing or dental benefits. Among…..
A recent report found that almost no retirees are making financially optimal decisions about when to take Social Security and are losing out on more than $100,000 per household as a result. The average Social Security recipient would receive 9 percent more income in retirement if he or she made a financially optimal decision. When claiming Social Security, you have three options: you may begin taking benefits between age 62 and your full retirement age, you can wait until your full retirement age, or you can delay benefits and take them anytime up until you reach age 70. If you…..
Working grandparents who support their grandchildren may qualify for the earned income tax credit, which could reduce the amount they pay in taxes by thousands of dollars, or allow them to receive a refund. The earned income tax credit is a benefit for working people with low to moderate incomes who have dependents, a category that includes grandparents. (Taxpayers without a dependent may also qualify, but it is more difficult.)
