Elder Law

Elder Law is a relatively new development thanks to prolonged life expectancy, it is a branch of the law that serves the needs of the elderly and the disabled as well as their family.  Elder Law covers an impressive range of client issues, both legal and financial.  We handle a wide range of legal matters affecting an older or disabled person, including issues related to health care, long term care planning, guardianship, retirement, Social Security, Medicare/Medicaid, and other important matters.

The three major categories that make up elder law are:

  1. Estate Planning and administration, including tax questions;
  2. Medicaid, disability and other long-term care issues; and
  3. Guardianship, conservatorship and commitment matters, including fiduciary administration.
