A broad range of complex issues affects the legal, financial, social and health care needs of our elderly population. If you or a family member have confronted these issues, then you know how frustrating and difficult it can be to navigate the maze of laws and regulations without professional help. The field of Elder Law can include estate planning, but may also involve legal assistance with obtaining Medicaid, Social Security or Veteran’s benefits as well as, when necessary, asking the court to appoint a guardian for an elderly person who can no longer provide for himself or herself.
Elder law goals we can help you with include:
- Strategies for Asset Preservation
- Qualifications for Medical Benefit Programs
- Medicaid Planning
- Social Security Benefits Planning
- Veteran’s Benefit Qualification
- Attention to Long-Term Care Insurance Options
We advise our clients about eligibility for public benefits and other planning options from a holistic perspective—taking into account the financial, medical, and emotional considerations that help families face the challenges of aging with dignity and independence.
