What We Practice
When working hard throughout their career, many people assume that simply saving and being financially responsible is enough to ensure that they will be able to retire comfortably and leave their assets to their loved ones when they are gone. Due to often complicated laws and regulations, however, simply saving for retirement is no longer enough. It is necessary to start making decisions about how you want your wealth to be handled now, and what should happen to it after you pass away.
In addition, now is the time to start making plans about what should happen should you become incapacitated due to an accident, illness, or any number of events. With the right estate plan in place, you can ensure you will get the care you desire, in the manner that you desire.
When a loved one passes away, it is often necessary to work through the probate courts to ensure their estate is settled and their assets can be distributed according to their wishes. This can be a complex and costly process if not done correctly, which is why it is so important to have an attorney guiding you every step of the way.
In addition to helping clients work through the probate process after the death of a loved one, we can also help you make smart decisions today that can help keep your estate out of the probate courts altogether. This can help make the transition of your estate to your loved ones much easier, while also saving them a lot of money, when the time comes.
Keeping your aging loved ones safe, and taking steps now to ensure your wishes are honored as you get older, are two of the most important goals of elder law. We can help with long-term care planning, Medicaid and Medicare preparation, and much more. Whether you need elder law assistance for a parent, or you want to prepare for your own future, we can help you every step of the way.
Buying and selling real estate is a complex process that will impact your life for decades to come. While many people think that simply having a realtor at their side is sufficient, that is rarely the case. An attorney with experience in real estate law can significantly help reduce risk by performing proper title searches, reviewing legal documents, and being at your side throughout the process to ensure everything goes smoothly from a legal perspective.
When someone becomes unable to make sound decisions on their own behalf, it often becomes necessary to set up a guardianship, a conservatorship, or both.
A guardian is a person to whom the court gives legal authority to make medical (and other) decisions on behalf of someone who they have determined to be unable to make sound decisions on their own. A conservator is someone the court gives the legal authority to make financial decisions for another person. In both cases, the person or people who are given this authority are legally obligated to act in the best interests of the person whom they are helping.
