  • Guardianships: Some of the elder law matters handles include guardianships, living wills, and Medicaid planning. Guardianships are a legal mechanism used by courts to protect people who are unable to care for themselves due to mental or physical challenges. As people grow older, medical issues such as Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, and other physical challenges may make it difficult for them to handle their financial and medical affairs. When this occurs, an adult child or other interested person may petition a court to appoint them as a guardian.
  • Medicaid Planning: Medicaid planning may increase your chances to receive Medicaid benefits and asset protection in the event you obtain Medicaid benefits.
