The Elder Law group of attorneys provides comprehensive legal services to older persons and their families in a caring and concerned environment. Using an interdisciplinary approach, our attorneys draw upon their experience in the areas of estate and retirement planning, Medicaid and Medicare eligibility, long term care issues and financing to provide our clients with protection and peace of mind.
We help our clients to maintain their homes through trust and estate planning. When needed, we secure nursing and personal care. We advise on trends in long-term care planning, and when desired, provide strategic counsel on the difficult decisions involved in placing family members into an assisted-living setting or a continuing-care retirement community.
The Group provides clients with advice and advocacy on Medicaid and Medicare eligibility and benefits, including representation at hearings and appeals.
Our attorneys provide practical advice on the need to plan for incapacity. We discuss the costs associated with the appointment of guardians and conservators, as well as how to avoid such appointments by executing a Durable Power of Attorney. We also give consideration to the quality of life issues addressed by a health care proxy.
