& ELDER LAW
Committed to Providing Clients and their Families with the Highest Standard of Estate Planning, Elder Law and Special Needs Services.
Elder Law..."A Safe Harbor"
Elder Law is a highly specialized field of law. The laws acknowledge and address the specific quality-of-life needs of those over the age of fifty. Its effective practice provides the elderly with qualified legal, financial, ethical and emotional advantages. While encompassing literally all legal services for seniors, Elder Law's primary objective is Asset Protection and Long Term Care Planning.
A number of new laws have been enacted in the past several years which have impacted the areas of Estate Planning and Asset protection and upcoming changes in both state and federal law could have a dramatic impact on our joint concerns in these areas. Our Estate Planning and Elder Law Forums & Seminars will cover these matters in some detail. See Schedule of Events for upcoming seminars.
