Firm Description

Elder law isn’t simply about writing wills and planning estates. It’s about understanding and caring for the wants and needs of a very special group of people. Due to healthier lifestyles and the miracles of modern medicine, we are living longer than ever before. Sadly, we are also often out-living our savings, and the ability to care for ourselves.

Whether it’s for our parents, our spouse, our siblings, or our children, we are all looking for personal advice to help guide us through the maze of financial and legal decisions that are part of growing older. We, in the Elder Law Practice Group at McNeely Stephenson, understand your stress and feel your pain. We are here for you, to protect the assets that you or your loved one has earned over a life time of hard work, to ensure that they receive the quality care they need, and ultimately, to provide you with the peace of mind that you deserve through proper planning techniques.

McNeely Stephenson provides high quality legal services for those with aging related issues including Medicaid planning, elder focused estate planning, Veterans benefit planning, long-term care, and Alzheimer’s/dementia planning. You deserve a law firm that personally understands what you’re going through and can provide you the specific legal solutions you need. At McNeely Stephenson, we are dedicated to providing you with the personalized service and mastery of the law necessary to meet your needs.
