Elder Law

Elder Law Overview

Elder Law is an area of law that focuses on issues facing senior citizens.  These issues include estate planning, Medicaid and disability qualification along with other long-term care issues.  In addition, Elder Law also addresses guardianship, conservatorship and commitment matters, including fiduciary administration.

We can help you address your Elder Law concerns.  Decisions made now will determine what type of lifestyle you will be able to enjoy in the years to come as well as the legacy that you will be able to leave your loved ones.  Often times, it is difficult to know what options are available to you. You should work with an attorney that can help you plan a course of action that will maximize your benefits as well as maximizing the preservation of your assets.
