ALL OUR ELDER CARE SERVICES

Elder law attorneys focus on estate planning options to minimize taxes, avoid probate court and maintain government benefits like social security and medicaid benefits. There are numerous specialties under the "Elder Law" umbrella. 

 

We have expertise to work within each elder care service. Usually, clients come to us for something specific, but the more they learn, the more they are interested in preemptive planning...

ALL OUR ELDER CARE SERVICES

ESTATE PLANNING
Everyone over age 18 needs an estate plan. Whether you have a taxable estate or a simple situation, we will help make sure your assets go where you want in the most effective manner.
MEDICAID PLANNING
Medicaid benefits may become an important consideration if you or a loved one enters a nursing home or other assisted living community. The timing of the medicaid spend down and the timing of the medicaid application itself are critical.
SPECIAL NEEDS TRUSTS
Caring for children is a major investment. If you have a child with special needs, you want to protect his or her financial future without losing government benefits like Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Medicaid.
GUARDIANSHIP
We help families establish guardianship estates for loved ones and we teach clients how to navigate this part of our legal system. We all want to live as fully independently as possible.
Division of Assets - As it pertains to Medicare

The spousal impoverishment provisions of the Medicaid program change the Medicaid eligibility requirements for a person who needs long-term care in a nursing home or Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) setting when there is a spouse who remains at home. It protects a portion of the couple's income and resources so the spouse at home is not reduced to poverty. At the same time, these provisions help the spouse needing long-term medical care to qualify for Medicaid benefits, which can help
in paying for that care.
