Understanding the world of elder law can be daunting but elder-law issues affect every family, large or small, rich or poor.

Legislative changes, tax revisions, changes in Medicare & Medicaid regulations, divorce, remarriage, death of a beneficiary – these are just a few of the issues to consider when making legal, financial and life-planning decisions.

Our clients are:

  • The elderly planning for their own needs and those of their heirs
  • The adult children of aging parents seeking to support their loved ones
  • Conservators with fiduciary responsibility for their client’s affairs
  • Banks and financial institutions with guardian responsibilities
  • Estate executors

We assist our clients with:

  • Aging in place – to live at home with advancing age and/or illness
  • Applying for Medicare, Medicaid and other government plans
  • Advocating for clients with health care providers and insurance companies
  • Applying for guardianship protection
  • Protecting income, assets and property
  • Assuring health care decisions are honored – through health care proxies, advanced medical directives, and living wills
  • Estate planning – to protect legacies by creating trusts and wills.
