					Advocating for Your Elderly Loved Ones

Description: Find out what knowledgeable elder law professionals can do to protect your assets
from probate, and keep you eligible for Medicaid.

Since the Older Americans Act in the 1960s, Elder Law has become a growing legal specialty and
today there are a number of Elder Law Lawyers, Elder Law Attorneys, Nursing Home Lawyers
and Nursing Home Attorneys.

One of the main focuses of Elder Law and related Estate Planning are those having to do with
maintaining eligibility for Medicaid or other types of financial assistance, as well as generally
protecting the transfer of assets and property to the rightful heirs, losing as little as possible to
taxes and fees.

Rules and laws regarding guardianship and conservatorship are everyday business for Elder Law
Lawyers like us. We assist families in need of finding the most efficient way to conduct business
for a family member that can no longer conduct their own affairs, or such planning for a time
further off down the road. We can also assist in the advisement of executor duties.

As Elder Law Attorneys we help people obtain all the necessary documents to assist their
elderly loved one(s). Some people choose to have a durable power of attorney assigned to
conduct affairs in their stead. Other people want assistance in specific tasks, such as sale of
property. Elder Law Attorneys can assist in drafting documents that reflect the elderly person’s
wishes. Sometimes, this includes making the scope that another person can decide things very
narrow.

A Medical Power of Attorney is a document that an Elder Law Lawyer can have drawn up at the
behest of an elderly person so that a designated person can make health care decisions. There
are many considerations and legal implications to these documents that we are well versed in
and ready to assist you with. Feel free to give us a call or use our contact form to ask any
questions you may have.
