Elder Law

Estate planning focuses on what will happen when a person passes away.  Elder law plans to take care of the client during his or her life, including management of assets and planning for long term care. 

It is important to consider who will take care of you if you are not able to do so.  This includes putting powers of attorney in place.  A revocable trust or living trust can be helpful in allowing for the smooth transition of management of assets and to provide more protection than financial powers of attorney.   

With the cost of medical care skyrocketing and viable options for the care of seniors dwindling, careful planning becomes imperative both to ensure quality care for you or a loved one and to protect valuable assets so that they can be used wisely in the future.  We can help seniors protect their assets from the costs of care and assist families who need guidance through the Medicaid maze.
