What Kerry Peck Donations Help Accomplish

Kerry Peck donations through the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys Political Action Committee help support candidates such as Representative Steve Israel. Representative Israel sponsored a bill in January 2012 called the Elder Care Tax Credit Act. This act sought to amend the IRS code to provide a tax credit for an adult child who is responsible for caring for his or her parents, even if the parent doesn't live with the adult child. This would help taxpayers bearing the increasing costs of long-term care for their family members. The bill had 10 co-sponsors and was referred to committee, where it remains.

Kerry Peck donations weren't the only donations received by the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys Political Action Committee. The PAC received nearly $65,000 in donations from individuals, mostly dedicated elder law professionals, and the majority of all funds collected went to candidates; less than $3000 went toward operating expenses.

For Kerry Peck, donations aren't just about money. He works with organizations that are dedicated to helping the elderly and the disabled and works tirelessly to ensure that these people are given a voice in the Senate and the House of Representatives, as well as in local governments. It's because of this that the National Academy Of Elder Law Attorneys Political Action Committee is a beneficiary of Kerry Peck donations.


Attorney Kyle Fahey handled our matter with skill and professionalism, and was always responsive. 10/10, would work with him and the firm again.

The peace of mind that Peck Ricthey's office has given me is worth every penny. The services they provided me and my family in an emergency medical situation is beyond outstanding. Last minute notice, Peter Brady and team were compassionate, understanding and most importantly efficient and got the job done. Look no further if you have any needs that this office can provide for you. Definitely in good hands! Thank you, a thousand times over for all of your help.

I solicited Peck Ritchey, LLC for assistance with a living trust for which I became the beneficiary. I needed assistance with understanding the details of how it all worked. However, I was especially concerned because there were threats of allegations made by family members and a lawsuit was filed against me. I needed a solid professional who had my best interests in mind. Peter Brady took my case and he managed it flawlessly. He explained everything in a way I could understand, he knew the law inside and out, he was always available to answer questions, and even offer support when things seemed like they could become extremely problematic. In addition to this, he had a plan. He navigated the course as if he already knew the next move by the opposing attorney. He made me feel like everything was in control and that’s because he knew exactly what he was doing and he consulted with me about everything. We ended up settling out of court and ultimately the court officially dismissed the lawsuit. I honestly believe if it wasn’t for Peter and his expertise this could have gone in an entirely different direction. Peter did a stellar job and I couldn’t be more pleased and impressed with his performance.

Tim Ritchey is as smart, honest, and genuine as they come. He truly puts helping people above making money. If you have a need, don’t hesitate to hire him.
