What Does Elder Law Include?

This area of law touches on a wide range of legal matters related to aging, including:

  • Financial issues: This includes concerns such as preserving financial stability after retirement, protecting important assets, minimizing tax liabilities and ensuring your property goes where you want it to when you pass away.
  • Health care issues: There are a variety of health-related matters that can require careful planning, such as disability, Medicaid eligibility and long-term care.
  • Guardianship issues: The steps you can take to control who makes important decisions for you in case of incapacity.

Our lawyers understand the eclectic nature of elder law and what it takes to build the right strategies to address such issues.

Focused On Solutions

We are a results-oriented team deeply committed to doing everything we can for our clients. When you come to us for elder law help, we take the time to get the full picture of your goals. We then work hard to craft tools that are customized to these objectives. Whether you are planning ahead, or forced into “crisis planning,” we can advocate on your behalf and help guide you through these issues, including long-term care and other health care matters, housing and facility options, and payment sources. As advocates on your behalf, we will work with you to get the care and services you need and want. Our top priority is getting you the right solutions for your needs.

Guardianship, Government Benefits And Special Needs Planning

If it’s too late for advance planning, we can handle your guardianship and conservatorship cases so that a court can appoint someone (including a family member or friend) to manage your personal affairs for you, and to manage your financial matters when needed.

Our attorneys also have significant experience in guardianship, government benefits, and special needs planning. This, includes drafting and administration of special needs trusts. We can help protect an inheritance or settlement, usually without a loss of benefits. If you have a family member or friend with special needs, let us help you get them the benefits and services they need.
