What is Elder Law?
Elder Law attorneys and staff are advocates for the elderly and disabled persons. We handle important financial and estate planning matters and also take care of day-to-day issues affecting the actual care of seniors and disabled persons, such as assisted living and life planning.
How can we help you?
Elder Law does not focus exclusively on legal issues. It is important for you to know that Elder Law includes issues related to health care, long term care planning, guardianship, retirement, Social Security, Medicare/Medicaid, and other important matters. Make sure that your plan includes ALL issues that you believe are important for your life and the legacy you want to leave behind.
