Advocating for families & elders since 1996

Areas of Practice
Wills, trusts, estate Planning
All adults need to have their legal documents in place, including Wills, Trusts, Powers of Attorney, and Healthcare Powers of Attorney with Living Wills, especially those with young children and those with real and personal property. Estate Planning is the cornerstone of our firm. Our Elder Law practice area focuses on the special legal needs and concerns of those over 50. We have developed significant expertise in the area of elder law, particularly in asset protection planning.
Decedents’ Estates / Probate
Our firm concentrates in estate administration of decedents’ estates, representing the Executor or Administrator in an Estate from the start to the finish. We also represent Trustees when the decedent had a Trust. Services in this area are extensive and include preparation of inheritance tax returns, appearing with the Executor or Administrator at the Register of Wills in the county courthouse, obtaining the estate tax ID, supervising the paying of bills and gathering of assets, supervising fiduciary returns, preparing estate settlement documents and distributing assets to beneficiaries at the end of the process. We have been doing this for 20 years.
We can establish guardianships to protect and provide for incapacitated adults and developmentally disabled family members. We represent families who need to petition the court for the establishment of a guardianship, or who can test the possible appointment of an inappropriate guardian.
Our Elder Law practice area focuses on the special legal needs and concerns of those over 50. We have developed significant expertise in the area of elder law, particularly in asset protection planning. Elder Law can range from Estate Planning to Medicaid Applications, and beyond.
Because the process of filing a Medicaid Application can be overwhelming, our firm helps clients prepare Medicaid benefits applications for clients’ elderly family members and represents clients before county Medicaid Agencies. In the event of a contested application, the firm stands ready to represent clients in an agency hearing to obtain approval for benefits.
Serious Injuries or Death
Our firm has been successful in obtaining excellent results for clients who have suffered because of serious injuries sustained in auto accidents and slip-and-fall accidents. We have also represented families in the wrongful death of a loved one.
