Disability and Elder Law
Our disability practice focuses on the estate planning needs of disabled individuals and the parents of disabled children. One aspect of that planning is to ensure that disabled individuals do not lose their governmental benefits. Beyond that, however, our planning seeks to respect the dignity of disabled family members and maximize their autonomy.
Elder Law is a very broad category of law that generally includes such diverse issues as: estate planning; guardianships; end-of-life planning; retirement planning; Social Security benefits; Medicare and Medicaid coverage; Medicaid planning; skilled nursing and in-home care; and tax issues. The unifying feature is that these issues affect older clients. Our planning involves understanding of all of these issues to ensure that our clients – members of the Greatest Generation – can enjoy their lives and their families knowing that they are protected.
