Lawyers With Purpose

Life Care Planning Law Firm Association

Firm Description

Mannor Law Group helps families with their estate planning, special needs planing and long term care planning. Most attorneys who practice elder law focus only on the legal and financial aspects of growing older. That includes the important task of finding ways for clients to pay for long-term care or ensure clients have the best legal documents. At Mannor Law Group, in addition to guiding you through financial and legal protections, we provide holistic and lifelong guidance through all aspects of aging and death.

We have a unique ability to help those families dealing with dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and other illnesses that cause memory loss. Mannor Law Group goes far beyond the basics of providing legal and financial advice by taking a comprehensive, holistic approach to planning, also known as Life Care Planning.
