Your family can depend on us to provide affordable legal counsel aimed at accomplishing your long-term and immediate objectives.
Taking On Estate Planning And Elder Law Matters
An estate plan will be crucial in determining who will receive your assets upon your death. Your estate plan can also designate who will care for your children in the event you die while they are still minors. An estate plan can also establish someone to handle your affairs if you are unable to do so. We create wills, trusts and other documents that are customized exactly to our clients' needs.
It can be hard to watch a parent or other loved one's mental and physical capacities decline. Planning for Medicaid eligibility or establishing a guardianship requires the skill of a dedicated elder law attorney. We are committed to making your voice heard and will work tirelessly on your behalf.
A Lawyer Who Makes House Calls
We believe that people are more comfortable discussing their estate planning or elder law needs in their home rather than in an attorney's office. Therefore, we regularly meet with our clients in their homes or another location of their choice. In this environment, we will have a candid, focused conversation about your estate planning and elder law needs. We will ask you many questions and listen carefully in order to diagnose your specific legal issues. Clear communication is a priority at our law firm. When you talk to us, we will not speak in complex legal jargon. Rather, we will give you the information you need in plain language and make sure you understand the steps we will take to address your legal issue.
