Full-Service Counsel and Advice for Seniors and Their Families

Asset Protection

Many people are concerned about protecting assets for the long-term protection of spouses and family members. We fully analyze family dynamics, finances and the individual health care needs of clients to provide strategic guidance to preserve family resources. Making the best decisions can be overwhelming. We will walk you through the wide range of legal documents available, such as a living trust, powers of attorney and living wills so you can make knowledgable decisions.

Long-Term Care Planning

Medicaid is not always the best answer for seniors to provide for long-term care needs. We view long-term care matters from a global perspective to help families understand all of their options. Avoid gaps in care by planning for the future today.

Caregiver Agreements

Drafting a valid personal care agreement is critical in the realm of VA planning, as well as in the context of Medicaid benefits planning. We have detailed knowledge of the law and the differences and similarities of Medicaid and VA Aid and Attendance programs to ensure that your interests are protected. Learn more at one of our Medicaid Benefits Seminars.

Trust Funding

We understand how important it is to our clients that their estate planning and asset protection goals are met. We can help you set up a trust to secure your assets and protect them for future generations. Trust funding is a complex process, but with our experienced guidance, we can ensure that the trust is funded

Advanced Directives

Life takes unpredictable turns and it is important to have a plan in place in case of a sudden change in health. Advanced directives are legal documents that allow you to designate a third party to make decisions on your behalf if you are unable to do so. By taking proactive steps, you can ensure that your wishes are respected if you become incapacitated or unable to make decisions for yourself.
