Elder Law

 

Helping You Protect What Matters Most In Your Life

Our Elder Law attorneys help to guide families and individuals through the complex issues facing the elderly at all levels of wealth. Elder Law issues often involve questions of real estate, income, estate, and gift taxation, as well as trust, estate, and Medicaid laws and regulations. Since most families and individuals find this maze of interrelated laws to be both daunting and confusing, we will assist you in successfully achieving your estate planning goals and in protecting yourself, your heirs, and your legacy.

In addition to assisting you with strategic use of wills, powers of attorney, living wills, revocable trusts and irrevocable trusts, our attorneys will provide you with assistance with issues involving nursing home selection, nursing home asset protection planning, Medicaid planning, the nursing home application process and the Medicaid application process.

Our Elder Law attorneys have decades of experience in dealing with the legal, practical and difficult questions and concerns facing clients who are considering the best way to pass assets to the next generation, protect themselves, protect a spouse, select the best nursing home and to protect his or her assets from the spending process associated with long term nursing care.

Because this is an ever changing area of practice our attorneys are dedicated to monitoring the frequent law changes relating to the Federal Estate Tax and Medicaid application process so that you can make the choices that are right for you and your family.
