Reviews for Richard Scott Stewart, Esq.


As a geriatric care manager, I often need to refer clients to attorneys with a particular expertise in the areas of elder law and Medi-Cal planning. Mr. Stewart has extensive knowledge of eligibility criteria, asset protection strategies, and issues related to incapacity planning. He was a helpful advocate as my clients navigated their way through the benefits planning process and the transition into care in a long-term care facility. Even more importantly, he has continued to provide help and information beyond the Medi-Cal qualification process, which I greatly value and appreciate.

Benefits planning for disabled elderly couple

I was referred to Mr. Stewart by two elder attorneys in the San Diego area. Mr. Stewart was very helpful and extremely knowledgeable regarding not only the legal aspects of the elderly, but also how the elderly age and what the family may expect in the future. His recommendations regarding asset protection and Medicare enrollment allowed my father to have health care far beyond what we could have provided otherwise. Scott’s detailed estate plan also allowed us to provide personal private care for my father as my father’s health declines. Scott also advised me on what skilled nursing facility would best serve my father’s needs in our area. I have found Scott to be very personable and extremely wise in his consultation with me regarding complicated family estate planning issues. I have personally recommended several people already to Scott as I have received excellent advice from him.
