Many legal matters affect the aging population, and the way that these matters are handled can have serious financial and healthcare consequences.
End-of-life planning and medical decision-making are crucial and complicated tasks. We can help you avoid potential obstacles and strive to ensure that your interests are protected through proper financial planning and long-term care options.
Medicaid planning is best done well in advance of the need for care.
Applying for Medicaid can be complicated if an applicant is over Medicaid’s financial eligibility limits. We can steer you through the Medicaid application process, planning techniques, and potential Medicaid appeals if benefits are denied.
A guardianship for an ill, disabled or aging family member is designed to provide for the physical and financial protection of those who cannot provide for themselves.
Even if a loved one is competent at this time, getting legal advice in advance can facilitate decision-making and ease the transition to guardianship, when that time comes.
Social Security Disability
For many adults, being unable to work because of physical or mental limitations is extremely frustrating. Without disability benefits, however, it could also be financially devastating. We can help you through the appeal process if the government denies your application for Social Security Disability Insurance.
