Full-Service Elder Law Representation

If you’re intimidated by the idea of losing your ability to make decisions independently, you’re not alone. Many adults struggle with the prospect of abdicating their autonomy and turning over important decisions to loved ones, but our Elder Law attorneys can help you avoid such circumstances. Through long-term care planning and estate planning, our attorneys will assist you in determining goals for your finances, assets, and medical care, including:

  • Your preferred nursing home or assisted living plans
  • Medicaid and financial planning
  • Advice concerning living wills, powers of attorney, trusts, and other estate planning documents
  • Protection from financial abuse

Making plans for your future not only gives peace of mind, but it can also provide your loved ones with relief, especially during an emotional time. Family members may find it challenging to make decisions on your behalf. Establishing plans in advance prevents them from having to make important decisions for you and helps you avoid arrangements of which you would not approve.
