Elder Law is a legal term that was coined to cover an area of legal practice that places an emphasis on those issues that affect the senior citizens among us.
Our Elder Law Firm is a group of professional attorneys who practice Elder Law and Special Needs Planning.
Elder law is a rapidly growing area of law which focuses on helping clients with their legal, financial, and medical needs as they age. It is a holistic practice that develops multidisciplinary solutions to problems with the objective of enhancing the client’s quality of life.
Along with Elder Law and Special Needs Planning, we also help you understand Wills & Trusts, Veteran Benefits, Probate, Guardianship, Asset Protection, Living Wills, and Health Care & Medicaid Choices.

Our mission is to provide high quality legal representation to our clients while maintaining our integrity and the highest ethical standards.

We offer legal advice that is well organized, structured, personalized, and understandable. We are constantly researching the newest methods to protect our clients—always mindful of the need for sensitivity for our clients’ individual and family goals.
As we age, health problems may begin to impact every aspect of our lives. Most seniors not only face the challenge of trying to live independently, but they also face the problem of trying to deal with current and future health care issues, and finding ways to pay for their medical care.
Documents like wills, trusts, powers of attorney, and health care surrogate designations are important tools in Elder Law, because they provide a way for individuals to choose who will make financial decisions and medical decisions for them if they can’t make them for themselves, as well as dictating who will receive their assets upon death. These documents are traditionally thought of as Estate Planning, but Elder Law includes so much more.
