Elder Law

Elder law focuses on the legal needs and rights of individuals 65 year of age and older, a clientele that deserves particular attention, respect, and planning. The laws in this area are changing rapidly as our legislature attempts to deal with the fact that (1) people are living longer today than ever before and (2) the baby-boom generation is reaching the age of retirement. Whether you are interested in drafting a Will to insure your property passes in accordance with your wishes, or whether you are in estate planning to protect your assets as you face the possibility of long term care, our firm can help.

Our lawyers regularly assist clients in the following areas:

New laws have been passed which can have a dramatic effect on your eligibility for Medicare coverage, nursing home care, and in-home care. The unwary or uninformed may inadvertently render themselves ineligible for assistance and encumber their children with the financial responsibility of long-term care. Let our attorneys assist you in this complex and ever-changing area of law.

Call our office to set up an appointment with one of our experienced attorneys. We will take the time to listen to your concerns and offer sound counsel as we explain the process and insure that your elder law concerns are properly addressed.
