Elder Law

Circumstances change as we age. We start to have new financial challenges, we may decide it’s time to move into a nursing home, an assisted living community, or simply hire some in-home help. Protecting your assets to pay for long term care and to leave to your heirs starts to weigh heavily. Planning for these changes is what Elder Law assistance is for.

Estate Admininstration

The death of a family member can cause many different emotions in different people, and can result in clashes among family. Still, accomplishing the many necessary tasks can be a burden, including probating the Will, providing notices to heirs, taking inventory of the estate assets, properly valuing the assets, opening an estate bank account, and paying estate bills.

Guardianship

Physical or mental incapacity can cause the inability for you to manage both personal and financial matters. For protection, a guardianship action is appropriate. Usually this occurs when a family member initiates the action. Supporting certifications from two doctors who have personally examined the alleged incapacitated person are necessary.
