Are you or a loved one concerned about planning for challenges such as long-term care? You've probably heard stories of seniors whose medical bills exhausted the money they had put aside for inheritances and more. Perhaps you are concerned about squabbles between beneficiaries or excessive taxation of your life savings that you have carefully set aside specifically for your golden years.

Maybe your thoughts have run to medical issues. Are you unsure what a living will is and if you want one? How about giving a spouse or child a power of attorney in the case you are incapacitated?

Understanding Elder Law

Elder law is the legal practice of counseling and representing seniors and their families concerning the legal aspects of long-term care planning, estate planning, public benefits, asset protection and legal capacity.

As elder law attorneys, we know the issues of concern that arise with respect to:

  • Trusts, including how to set them up to maximize protection of your assets and minimize the impact of trustees and executors
  • Asset protection
  • Estate planning
  • Medical and special needs planning
  • Retirement benefits
  • Taxes-and how to avoid tax traps
  • Insurance, Medicaid and Medicare
  • Living wills
  • Power of attorney arrangements

Resources for Seniors
