Elder Law

Elder Law: Protecting the Vulnerable

The term “elder law” is not about a precise set of local, state, or federal laws. Rather, elder law serves as an umbrella term for a number of legal areas. Elder law can refer to an array of issues of interest to, or often affecting, people in their later years. Many topics falling under the category of “elder law” may also pertain to people with disabilities and in fact, people of any age from many other demographics.

For the sake of this website, we will use “elder law” to mean legal matters that our firm often advises on concerning people beyond retirement age and the people who may care for them.

Here are some examples of elder law matters we often advise on:

  • Estate planning questions, answers, and solutions
  • Drafting, revising, or updating wills and trusts
  • Living wills
  • Powers of attorney
  • Health care directives
  • Long-term care planning
  • Long-term care contracts
  • Guardianships and conservatorships
  • Medicaid planning
  • Transfer of real estate to family members and charitable organizations
  • Probate and estate administration

From trusts to asset preservation to helping with Medicaid planning, we skillfully counsel you for all of your elder law needs.
