Biography

Attorney Jeff Rivard is enthusiastic about meeting new people and is interested to learn all he can about you and your situation. And we are confident that you once you get to know Jeff, that you will discover he is precisely the type of person you are looking to for guidance on your estate planning needs.

Among his estate and long-term care planning skills, are helping you create plans for a solid, secure future that ultimately give you peace of mind. Jeff also heads up our Estate Administration Department and can help provide you the care and confidence (especially during this difficult time) with the probate process and administering your loved one's estate.

When it comes to working with you, Jeff naturally goes the extra mile - literally. Once, on a Saturday, he drove many miles to the home of a terminally ill client to help her make changes to her estate plan to protect cherished real estate. The client passed away a few days later, with her wishes set in place.

Another time, Jeff uncovered a $15,000 life insurance policy that a departed client’s family didn’t know existed.

An accomplished public speaker, Jeff shares his knowledge and experience in the elder law field with many professional, civil and non-profit organizations.

At Czepiga Daly Pope & Perri, Jeff is at your service to help you with:

- Estate Planning
- Elder Law
- Probate Settlement
- Trust Administration
- Medicaid Planning
