Elder Law/Long-Term Care Planning/Medicaid Coordination
We are experienced in addressing the specialized needs of elders, people with disabilities, and their families. Our practice is focused on helping our clients to age with dignity. We skillfully address a wide range of issues of mature estate planning, ranging from reviewing long term care options, to asset protection strategies, to preventing and fighting the exploitation of elders.
Our caring and compassionate legal team uses a client-focused approach and we aim to help seniors age in place if appropriate. We work with each individual to manage life choices and make wide-ranging plans with a goal of independence, dignity, and quality of life for every client. We keep abreast of the constant changes in Medicaid law and provide practical solutions to protect hard-earned assets from long-term care costs. Using trusts, deeds, gifting, and other strategies, we assist seniors in preserving their home and other real estate, as well as ensuring liquid assets are saved for spouses and other family members rather than used to pay for long-term care.
Strategies for preserving assets include:
- Irrevocable trusts
- Immediate annuities
- Life estate deeds and other real estate transfers
- Conversion of vacation property into productive business property
- The purchase of long-term care insurance
