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, long-term care planning, and special needs planning. 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 for or maintain Medicaid and pay for long-term care costs. Without an adequate asset protection plan, long-term care costs may be cost prohibitive. An elder law attorney is not only for older generations, but is also an estate planning attorney and regularly crafts estate plans for all types of families whether for tax planning purposes, asset protection, or planning for disabled or minor children.
In many instances, the implementation of such techniques commands the experience of an attorney also knowledgeable with tax matters. For instance, it is impossible to prepare a Medicaid Trust for a client without also being able to advise the client of the tax consequences of creating such a trust. Proficiency in the tax law is also imperative where the client is being advised to transfer assets in order to qualify for Medicaid.
Our elder law attorneys are proficient in preparing Wills, Trusts, Powers of Attorney, Health Care Proxies, and other estate planning documents for various types of clients ranging from young adults to those in immediate need of a nursing home or in-home care.
Over the years, our attorneys have been providing information for elder law planning to our clients, providing them piece of mind, calming any fears they may have and more so that our clients may live out their later years safe in the knowledge they will be taken care of.
