Elder Law & Guardianships

Our elder law attorneys assist clients with a variety of elder care needs, such as structuring clients’ assets so that they can qualify for Medicaid assistance to pay for their future needs, including potential nursing home bills. We integrate this planning with our clients’ estate planning documents and business models, so that each client has trusted fiduciaries in place to assist them as needed.

We also assist clients in establishing and administering guardianships for minors and incapacitated adults. Guardianships may be established for persons who are unable to care for themselves and/or their property. Our guardianship attorneys are available to guide clients through the application process and appointment of the guardian or guardian advocate, the administration of the guardianship for its duration, including annual reports and accountings for the court, and the discharge of the guardian or guardian advocate at the end of the guardianship.
