Elder Law

Elder Law

The majority of aged individuals depend upon family members to protect and care for them. Ideally, family should look out for their own family members and, in many cases, it works. However, a dependence upon others puts you at risk. They may be completely devoted, but unaware of options and resources. They may come to justify sacrificing your interests for their own needs.

By consulting with a qualified elder law attorney, you can take steps to ensure that your independence and dignity are protected and preserved in your later years. We can put documentation in place to ensure that your assets are used for your care and in the manner that you desire. We can protect you from exploitation and manipulation and from simple, ignorant mistakes that could cost you dearly. We can educate you about the programs, services, and benefits available to you.
