Firm Description

The heart of Elder Law is the people served in this important area – seniors and their loved ones. Health care costs are rising at a rate faster than most people’s finances can afford. People are living longer because of advances in medicine and healthcare. In fact, while everyone has heard that 10,000 baby boomers turn 65 every day, many don’t realize that the fastest growing segment of the American population includes people age 80 and over. Planning to protect your nest egg for when, not if, a long-term care event strikes your family, may make the difference in the world when it comes to your ability to leave a legacy.

Why a Will is not Enough

A will is a good starting point, however, there are many other factors that must be weighed to determine whether it is enough. Are you a wartime veteran? Do you or your spouse have degenerative health conditions? Are you concerned that money or  property you leave your children may be taken by a creditor, or an ex-spouse? Are you or your loved ones facing mounting health care costs due to injury or illness? Based on your specific situation, we can craft a specialized plan that focuses on protecting your assets while promoting a high quality of life.

Planning Regardless of Your Net Worth

Proper planning is essential regardless of your net worth. In fact, most middle class families will suffer more financially during a health crisis than those who are extremely wealthy or extremely poor. Protect what you have worked so hard for. Take the necessary steps to continue providing for those you love once you are gone.

Averting a Crisis

Are you or a loved one already dealing with a long-term health event? If so, there is still time to avert a crisis. We can take steps today to “stop the bleeding” in your life savings so that you can preserve as much as possible for your spouse and/or your children.
