Everyone needs some form of estate planning.

It is imperative to prepare for your future and protect your loved ones by creating an estate plan with an attorney. Make sure that in an emergency, individuals you trust have the authority to make decisions for you and are able to assist you in getting the medical care that you need, managing your affairs, paying your bills and conserving your assets. Know that if the time comes that you are unable to make and communicate your healthcare treatment decisions, you have documented your wishes and appointed someone to see that those wishes are carried out. Have the peace of mind of knowing that once you are gone, your wishes will be followed, and your loved ones have been provided for.

Wills, trusts, power-of-attorney and healthcare directive documents are the foundation of an estate plan and should be reviewed with an attorney anytime you or a family member experiences a major life event, such as a marriage, divorce, birth, death, disability or a serious medical issue. These documents should also be periodically reviewed to make sure they comply with all recent changes in the law.

It is never too early to start planning now.

If your children are small, be sure that you have a plan that provides for them in the extreme emergency that they will need guardianship from a family member or close friend. Let us help you make sure that they are not left to the courts at a time when they will need the most comfort from a person of your choosing.

Estate Planning

Understand the options and create the estate plan that is right for your unique circumstances. Don’t wait until it’s too late.

Planning for Long Term Care

An attorney can help you navigate the complexities of the Medicaid application process.

Is there anything that can be done when a nursing home crisis arises?

When you or a loved one require immediate long term skilled nursing care, it may seem like all is lost. However, consulting with an attorney with a thorough understanding of the rules regarding the Medicaid application process and the strategies available in crisis situations is crucial and must be done as soon as possible. Waiting too long can result in missed opportunities to conserve the maximum amount of assets for you and your loved ones.

How can I protect my family home or farm?

Should I deed my house to my kids? Should I give everything away so the home or state doesn’t get it? These are the most common concerns voiced by our clients. There is not a “one size fits all” solution. It is important to consult with an attorney who can explain the risks, as well as the Medicaid and tax implications of making gifts during life and explore with you all of the options available to you.
