Ready To Assist With A Wide Array Of Issues

The issues faced by senior citizens are broad and unique. Let our attorney assist you with any of the following elder law matters:

  • Health care and long-term care planning
  • Eligibility for public benefits, including Medicaid, Medicare and Social Security
  • Protecting assets from Medicaid when a loved one enters a nursing home
  • Legal capacity and guardianships
  • The disposition and administration of a senior citizen's estate through estate planning and probate
  • Suspected abuse or neglect by a nursing home, assisted living facility or in-home caregiver

Is Guardianship The Answer?

When a person becomes incapacitated and unable to make important health care and financial decisions on his or her own, guardianship might be the answer. We can assist and guide you and your family through the guardianship process. Or if you want to dispute the need for a guardianship, we are also available to advocate on your behalf.
