Focus Areas

Estate Planning

Believe it or not, you have an estate. In fact, nearly everyone does. Your estate is comprised of everything you own— your car, home, other real estate, checking and savings accounts, investments, life insurance, furniture, personal possessions. No matter how large or how modest, everyone has an estate and something in common—you can’t take it with you when you die.

Incapacity Planning

Part of estate planning is also planning for a disability, whether temporary or permanent. Given the choice—and you do have the choice—wouldn’t you prefer these matters be handled privately by your family, not by the courts?

Long Term Care Planning

So who will pay the cost if you need long term care? There are only three sources: your (or your family’s) assets, Medicaid, and long term care insurance. When planning for long term care, the experience and advice of a qualified professional can be most helpful. If you are considering trying to qualify for Medicaid, make sure you talk with an expert in Elder Law before you do anything. An innocent mistake could disqualify you from receiving benefits for many months.
