This is the scenario of COVID 19 patients everywhere. Plus, there is medication that has excellent reports of turning around deadly symptoms within hours, but is not legal to give unless it is a last ditch effort under the “Right to Try” Executive Order from President Trump.

Ask, since passing the California State Bar Exam in 1981, has had a long history of serving the Riverside and San Bernardino County communities in many types of law, but particularly in the areas of wills, trusts and estate planning, Medi-Cal eligibility qualifying coupled with asset protection, conservatorships, probate, will contests, trust administration and trust litigation.

Mr. Ask has been a bankruptcy law practitioner since 1982, as well and is a member of The State Bar of California and The National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys

For several years, beginning in 1993 and continuing on into 1998, Mr. Ask spoke to groups at many senior centers and other public forums on a regular basis.
