The combination of an aging population and a continual upsurge in instances of Alzheimer’s disease and other aging-associated diseases and disorders, paired with the steady rise of long-term care costs, the implementation of elder law strategies is essential to ensuring holistic legal, financial and well-being protection for our clients.
We work with our clients to put in place legal documents, including powers of attorney and health care proxies, customized for the elderly. While we endeavor to encourage planning in advance for eventual incapacity or infirmity, we also help families in crisis when advance planning is absent or insufficient.
Our elder law planning attorneys have more than six decades of experience in preparing and implementing appropriate plans for our elderly clients, including traditional estate planning, planning for incapacity, Medicaid planning, tax planning and guardianship.
