We provide comprehensive Elder Law planning by reviewing assets, income and transfers in order to determine the elder's needs and identify any other legal needs that should be addressed in the plan. Initially these plans are done with a focus on long term care planning, asset protection and Medicaid.
We help our clients establish comprehensive, personalized estate plans. Typically estate planning includes the creation of a will, a financial power of attorney, a medical power of attorney, and a living will and last wishes declaration. We also specialize in the creation of trusts.
Most people don't like to think about disability or the chances of becoming disabled. However, it is important to plan for that possibility. The Social Security Administration pays disability benefits through two programs: the Social Security Disability Insurance program (SSDI) and the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program.
