Elder Law, Long-Term Care Planning &
We help clients plan for the high costs of health care, disability, and long term care assistance to protect you or a loved one’s health, dignity, and peace of mind. This includes planning for health care, retirement, the possibility of incapacity, and asset protection as you or a loved one grow older and for the distribution of assets after an individual passes away. The importance of an estate plan that meets your goals cannot be overstated. With the cost of long-term care and health care ever increasing, planning ahead is vital. We will work with you to create a comprehensive estate plan to meet your unique needs.
Special needs trusts may be an appropriate tool if disability planning is needed and may be created with the proceeds from a judgment or settlement or by a loved one. Special needs trusts have numerous benefits, such as preserving eligibility to receive government benefits, providing funds to pay for the "extras" in ensuring a higher quality of life, and securing assets with the family for future generations.
