Life Care Planning is a holistic, elder-centered approach to the practice of law that helps families respond to every challenge caused by chronic illness or disability of an elderly loved one. The goal of Life Care Planning is to promote and maintain the good health, safety, well-being, and quality of life of elders and their families. Elders and their families get access to a wider variety of options for care as well as knowledgeable guidance from a team of compassionate advisors who help them make the right choices about every aspect of their loved one's well-being.
We utilize an inter-disciplinary team that works to identify present and potential future care needs, locate appropriate care, and ensure high-quality care. This approach relies less on crisis-oriented transactions and more on the development of on-going relationships with families.
Asset protection planning is a process by which we work with families to organizes their financial affairs in such a manner as to safeguard assets from the risk of exposure. The process of asset protection involves transferring the assets from an unprotected form of ownership to a protected form of ownership. It is our goal to assure that your "nest egg" is protected, your care needs are met and you will be able to leave a legacy to your children and grandchildren.
