Elder Law focuses on the unique legal and medical needs of seniors and their families as they face health care, nursing home and Medicaid planning decisions.   As your attorneys, we take a holistic approach to planning and managing your income and assets to accomplish your goals, and we work with your loved ones to coordinate your care so you can have the highest quality of life possible.   

We do this by using innovative techniques with your Will, Financial Power of Attorney, Health Care Power of Attorney, Living Will, and various types of trusts including, Miller Trusts, Asset Protection Trusts, life insurance trusts and revocable living trusts.  We can help you understand the differences, benefits and limitations of each strategy and legal instrument.   

After reviewing your situation and goals, we then present you with strategies to arrange your assets and income to protect you and your family, while at the same time qualifying for the benefits you deserve and have earned.   Those benefits may include Medicaid, Veterans Aid and Attendance as well as other types of programs.   We even help you coordinate decisions for your geriatric care, assisted living, retirement community, home care, or nursing home care, depending on your individual situation and preference.  Helping you plan for and protect your life’s savings is all a part of the service we provide, and we do it in coordination with your family, medical team, and other trusted advisors.

Whether you and your family are facing a medical crisis on how to pay for long term care, or if you are taking a more proactive planning approach, our firm of skilled and highly trained attorneys are here to help you every step of the way.   We are not only members of the leading national advocacy group of elder law attorneys, NAELA (National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys), but also Elder Counsel, a nationwide organization of Elder Law attorneys focused on the needs of seniors and the specialized strategies needed to serve them.
