Meet Jeff Cotney

2016-01-27 13.07.22I received my law degree in 1999 from the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa, Alabama where I was an Editor of the Alabama Law Review and a member of Bench and Bar Legal Honor Society. I am a member of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA) as well as the Elder Law sections of the Alabama State Bar and the Birmingham Bar Association.

I work and live in Gardendale, Alabama with my wife, Carrie, and our daughter, Parker Ann. I grew up in Alexander City, Alabama and attended Benjamin Russell High School. I received my undergraduate degree from the University of North Alabama in Florence, Alabama in 1995.

Our Services

We help families work through the difficult process of obtaining Medicaid nursing home benefits for their parents, spouses, and loved ones. We counsel our clients on the Medicaid eligibility rules and take on the burden of filing and prosecuting their applications for benefits. Applying for Medicaid nursing home benefits can be overwhelming. We can help. Contact us today.

As an Elder Law attorney, I also assist clients with planning for future disability. We use durable powers of attorney, health care powers of attorney, living wills, living trusts, and other means to delegate management and decision making to others in the event of incompetency or incapacity. Without these documents, you cannot be sure who will be acting on your behalf or what decisions they will make regarding your care. Do not let it happen. Contact us today.

I also work with clients to address their estate planning issues. This includes planning for the management of their property and assets during their lifetimes and the disposition of those assets on death through the use of wills, trusts, and other planning documents. Without proper estate planning, your assets may go to family members who should not receive them. We can help you avoid this problem. Contact us today.
