About Us

We formed the Sweet Legal Group in 2018 out of a desire to start something fresh for our clients. We're not another traditional law firm. Rather we wanted to focus on just helping clients with elder law and corresponding issues.

Our team is a group of people who like working together for our clients. We're proud of what we accomplish—giving our clients options and peace of mind when facing tough decisions about long-term care. And when it's time, we confidently help them through the eligibility process for public benefits.

Our principal attorney Allan Sweet has worked his entire professional career focused on estate planning and asset protection. Attorney Jaclyn Palumbo practices with her motto "a personal lawyer for your personal matters." Our senior paralegal Nikki Obloy has served on the front line of helping clients through the planning and eligibility process for public benefits for well over a decade. We care about our clients and put our knowledge to work for them!

Why choose us?

There are so many lawyers to choose from, even within the areas of “elder law” and Medicaid. If you're a looking at us because you're a married couple or you're trying to help one, know that you've found the right office. We concentrate our law practice on knowing how to maximize benefits for both spouses and trying to keep the family financially healthy even with one spouse needing expensive, formal care.

Our colleagues in this area of the law work on cases for single and married couples. While we, too, help single individuals, we really concentrate on married couples because we find the issues facing them (along with the Medicaid rules themselves) are very different from those who are single. Spouses have worked for what they have and built a life around that. And we want to make sure when one spouse needs significant and costly care, the other spouse is as strong as possible financially. We advocate for the spouse who stays home—the spouse in the facility will be taken care of.
