  Elder Law Services

Elder Law refers to all the legal matters relating to the “golden years” and beyond. Can you stay in your house with home health care? How will you pay for the nursing home? How can you legally transfer assets to your eventual heirs? How do you intervene to protect your elderly parents?

We can advise you on a wide range of matters for the elderly and their caretakers:

Life care – Managing your health care at different stages

Medicaid planning – Managing assets to qualify for Medicaid nursing home assistance, while possibly leaving assets to family members

Guardianship – Asking the court to put you in charge of Mom or Dad’s financial affairs and health care

Estate planning – Establishing wills, trusts and powers of attorney

Wealth transfer – strategies to preserve assets for beneficiaries
