It's been a number of years since we purchased our long term care insurance policies through Craig. We're very happy that we did as my husband has now been on claim for more than a year. In hindsight, buying long term care insurance was one of the best investments we've ever made.- Emily M.
Craig assisted my wife and I with our long term care planning. His process of explaining our options was very thorough and professional and we have since referred some family members to him. We are estate planning attorneys and have also referred clients to him for their long term care protection.- Ted V.
