Why hiring an experienced elder law attorney is IMPORTANT

There are many complexities in the area of elder planning (a/k/a Medicaid Planning).

Elder law involves a wide range of legal issues, including estate planning, medicaid planing, and guardianship. The laws are complex and it imperative that we stay up to date with these laws and understand how they interact in order to provide the best advice to our clients.

For many seniors, the cost of long term care is unattainable and therefore Medicaid is crucial to preserving their assets. Qualifying for Medicaid benefits while at the same time safeguarding our client’s assets is at the forefront of our goals for our clients. This is why it imperative that attorneys must be well-versed in the ever evolving Medicaid rules and the different strategies to protect their client’s assets.

It is axiomatic as an elder attorney to include advance healthcare directives in discussions with our clients in order to ensure that the client’s wishes are documented and met. This is especially true when dealing with blended families and in situations where there may be differences of opinions. Having these documents in place reduces the potential for family conflicts.
