-ELDER LAW / BUSINESS LAW -
Much of our elder law practice is focused on assisting our clients’ caregivers through the stressful and challenging times in their lives. Achieving the long-term care needs of your loved one, and protecting the family and its financial security is complicated. Let us guide you along the way.
Long-Term Care Planning: If a nursing home or other extensive care is necessary, we meet our client’s needs by protecting their life savings against catastrophic care costs and by assisting families to access the best of long-term care.
Estate Planning: We utilize wills and trusts and other estate planning tools, as we focus on the lifetime needs of our clients. That lifetime plan is then synthesized into appropriate asset distribution upon death.
Special Needs Planning for the Disabled: Many disabled people must qualify for Medicaid and other government programs to obtain health insurance and other assistance. Qualifying for financial need, such as Medicaid and other government programs, is based on financial need. We help our clients to legally protect assets in order to retain or obtain eligibility for these important benefits. We also plan for those clients who wish to provide for a disabled heir in a will or a trust.
Guardianship: Sometimes guardianship is the only solution to aid loved ones who cannot make decisions for themselves. With our experience we can minimize the expense and aggravation in guardianship proceedings.
Probate, Estate and Trust Administration: We are dedicated to the proper and efficient administration of wills, trusts and estates. Our objective is to minimize the complexity of the probate process for you, while maintaining effective communication with you, and to settle estates with expediency to the extent possible.
Wills, Living Wills & Health Care Directives: A valid Will prepared by an experienced attorney can help to insure that your estate will be transferred in an orderly and intended fashion. Living wills are documents that state your wishes with regards to life-prolonging procedures. Healthcare directives state wishes with regards to medical choices. We provide our expertise to aid in helping your family and loved ones to avoid the struggles they would otherwise have without the proper planning to carry out your wishes.
Effective and efficient representation in Contract Review and Formation, Creation of Agreements, Contract and Performance Disputes. Utilization of strategies to maximize client satisfaction in business transactions and in resolution of conflicts.
