Our Elder Law attorneys will help you protect your assets

Protecting your assets is not only important for financial stability, but can be especially beneficial when long-term care is needed. With proper planning, we can work with you to devise strategies so that your wealth and savings will address future needs. 

A will is the first place to start

The last will and testament dictates what will happen to the money, property, and belongings when a person dies. It instructs probate court and the executor how to distribute assets upon a person's death. For people with young children, one of the most important aspects of a will and estate plan is the selection of guardians, which plays a critical role in the probate court's selection of a guardian for minor children.

Trusts to avoid probate

A Living Trust helps to avoid probate for virtually any asset that is owned. The first step is to create a trust document that names someone to take over as trustee upon the death of the individual. 

Probate assets

These assets are subject to the probate process to get the assets out of the deceased person's name and into the names of the rightful heirs. Probate assets include certain real property in the decedent's name, bank accounts, stocks and bonds, vehicles including cars and boats, and business interests. 

Qualification for Medicaid benefits

Medicaid eligibility rules are based on several factors including individuals with low-income; pregnant women, infants, and children; older adults; and individuals with disabilities. Our attorneys will help determine your Medicaid eligibility and will assist with the Medicaid application.
