Elderly law is a rapidly growing area of law which focuses on helping clients with their legal, financial, and medical needs as they age. It is a holistic practice that develops multidisciplinary solutions to problems with the objective of enhancing the client’s quality of life.
We offer legal advice that is well organized, structured, personalized, and understandable. We are constantly researching the newest methods to protect our clients—always mindful of the need for sensitivity for our clients’ individual and family goals. As we age, health problems may begin to impact every aspect of our lives.
Most seniors not only face the challenge of trying to live independently, but they also face the problem of trying to deal with current and future health care issues and finding ways to pay for their medical care.
Documents like wills, trusts, powers of attorney, and health care surrogate designations are important tools in Elder Law because they provide a way for individuals to choose who will make financial decisions and medical decisions for them if they can’t make them for themselves and determine who will receive their assets at death.
These documents are traditionally thought of as Estate Planning, but Elderly Law is so much more.
