Guardianship Lawyer

These days, people are living longer and often do not have the finances to adequately fund their needs in those later years of life. Eight out of 10 people will find themselves in a nursing home at some point in their life, even if it is just for rehabilitation after a hospital stay. Many of those individuals did not think they would live long enough to be put into a home or assisted care facility, and therefore, they were grossly unprepared when it came time to make the transition. Through a personalized elder law plan, our attorneys will help you to prepare for whatever may come by using the following types of resources:

  • Long-term care
  • Trusts or conservatorships
  • Asset protection planning
  • Medicaid planning and crisis assistance

No matter where you are in life, our experienced legal professionals can help you create a plan that works best for you. We will ensure that you understand the relevant laws, and together we will work to protect your rights and interests.
