Guardianship 11%

The constant changing of state and national laws has created such complexity regarding the elderly. As an elder law attorney, we feel that it is our responsibility to advise you regarding asset protection as well as help you find and secure the highest quality of life for you and your heirs.

In developing an estate plan, we work with you to help ensure your wishes are carried out in respect to your property, wealth and loved ones, upon death and that we are able to minimize estate and income taxation and avoid probate court.

We provide legal and financial advice to our clients that are faced with the overwhelming cost of institutional or community-based long term care. Many of our clients cannot afford to privately pay for long term care and cannot obtain long term care
