Focused on Elder Care Law with the Ability to Fulfill Family Planning Needs

Elder Law and Special Needs Law focus on the needs of individuals approaching retirement age, or who have chronic healthcare conditions. Unlike a traditional estate planning firm, the focus is on living, not dying. Elder Law and Special Needs Law Attorneys look for ways to marshal your assets for the purpose of preserving your dignity, quality of life and independence as you age. We also identify public benefits to enhance your quality of life. If you are a caregiver, you might say our role is to help you take care of your mom or dad.

How do we plan? First, we ask a lot of questions. It's important that we understand your values and what's going on in your life. We want to know your concerns. We want to know your goals, dreams and ambitions for yourself and your family. We want to know your vision for a happy and fulfilled life. Our role is to serve as your advocate, and give you the best chance to fulfill your goals.

We also want to know what legacy you want to leave. Elder Law Attorneys do traditional estate planning after planning for your needs, so it is important that we understand how you want to organize your affairs, and what plans you want to implement for your children, grandchildren, or other loved ones.
