Elder law encompasses issues touching on the lives of the “elderly,” a population which may include anyone from a ninety-five year-old nursing home patient to a sixty-five year-old tri-athlete. Issues affecting this diverse group may touch upon, but are not limited to Medicare, Social Security, guardianship proceedings, estate planning, financing nursing home care, pension and other retirement plans, elder abuse, and family matters, such as grandparent visitation and even divorce.
Why might you need an elder law attorney?
If you or a loved one is concerned about cost of long term care and how you will pay for it, then an experienced elder law attorney is going to be your most knowledgeable resource, whether elderly or not!
As an elder law attorney, I can help explain to you the various methods of paying for long-term care, including the government benefit programs that are available and how to qualify for them.
If you are concerned about planning for a time when you might not be able to make decisions on your own, then I can explain to you the various options that are available to you to make sure your wishes are carried out in the event you become incapacitated.
These are just a couple of the many ways I can assist you. There are many more types of situations where I can be helpful. I provide free 30 minute consultations to help me determine if your situation is one where I can truly help and for you to determine if I am someone you would like to work with.
