An Elder Law Attorney Can Help You Plan Today for Tomorrow
Elder law is a combination of numerous legal practice areas such as trusts, estates, estate administration, tax and special needs planning, etc. An experienced lawyer can help you with all of the legal ramifications whether you are enjoying or about to enjoy your retirement.
An elder law attorney is instrumental in applying various asset protection techniques, assisting clients in preserving their assets in order to qualify or maintain Medicaid and pay for long-term care costs. Without an adequate asset protection plan long-term care costs may be cost prohibitive.
A guardianship proceeding is usually commenced if you, a loved one or friend can no longer make decisions and is in need of assistance with their personal and/or financial affairs and is incapable of attending to such needs on their own. A guardianship proceeding can be avoided if a client prepares a New York State Power of Attorney and Statutory Gifts Rider. However, many people never attend to the preparation of these documents and it is also not uncommon for clients to have these documents prepared by a non-elder law attorney which may result in inferior documents that could eventually necessitate the development of a guardianship proceeding.
