What is Elder Law?

"Elder Law" is the legal practice of counseling and representing older persons and their representatives about the legal aspects of health and long term care planning, public benefits, surrogate decision-making, older persons' legal capacity, the conservation, disposition and administration of older persons' estates and the implementation of their decisions concerning such matters, giving due consideration to the applicable tax consequences of the action, or the need for more sophisticated tax expertise. 

Steps To Peace of Mind

Everyone needs a Life Care Plan to provide you and your loved ones peace of mind. Our office understands how to help you through this process, as well as the relevant laws and regulations that will impact how you implement the Plan of Care.
1. Build a circle of concerned friends, family and staff to participate in the planning process. If possible, the elder or person with a disability should be the center and the manager of the circle.
