You're Only Old Once

We are strong advocates for the elderly and their loved ones. We handle a wide range of legal matters for our clients, including issues relating to health care, long term care planning, guardianship, retirement, Social Security, Medicare/Medicaid, and other important matters. 


We take care of day-to-day issues affecting the actual care of seniors, such as assisted living and life planning. Of utmost importance to us are the sensitive, emotional, and physical needs of older or disabled adults.

 

As a full service Estate Planning firm, we  offer planning for the following: 


Special Needs:  We specialize in setting up Special Needs Trusts and/or Supplemental Needs Trusts among other planning documents for both minors and adults with special needs.

Living Arrangements: We counsel on finding the right housing opportunities for our clients. 


Gifting:  We advise on income, estate, and gift tax matters. 


Health Care:  We assist with health care planning, including long term care options, patient rights, Medicare, and health care power of attorney.


Guardianship:  We help with the selection and appointment of a legal guardian.
