Our Practice Areas
The best time to plan for the future is while you still have good physical and mental health. Medicaid covers some (not all) of nursing home expenses, which is why you need an elder law attorney for asset protection and estate planning.
Our elder law attorney can help you plan for retirement by guiding you through important legal matters like long-term care, Medicaid eligibility, estate planning, and your last will and testament. The best time to hire an elder law attorney is while you are in good physical and mental health, so you can make the best decisions for your future.
Our attorney has been on both sides of contesting a will, which makes him uniquely qualified to handle your case. Our attorney’s experience with wills and trusts means he’ll be able to anticipate how the other side will build their case and how to best protect your rights as a beneficiary, as well as the final wishes of the decedent.
Estate planning is about much more than writing a will. Our estate lawyer can also help you protect assets from nursing home spend-downs, as well as help you express your wishes for asset distribution and end-of-life care.
When a family member passes away, it can be difficult trying to settle their estate on your own. If the decedent had a large estate, or you anticipate complications, we recommend hiring our estate attorney as soon as possible. He will be able to guide you through the process of evaluating and distributing assets, which may or may not involve probate proceedings.
