Elder Law

Over the past 20 years, with increases in life expectancy and the elderly population, a new area of law developed to meet the needs of our seniors. This area of law is now commonly known as Elder Law. At PS&E, our Elder Law group has the experience and dedication to assist seniors and their families in preparing for and successfully dealing with unique problems that arise for seniors. We take the time to work with seniors to accomplish their goals. Our team counsels seniors and their families while providing the comfort and compassion that is needed to work through difficult and often emotional situations.  We will look at each family and provide the best options from a legal, tax, and long term care perspective.

 

Although many aspects of Elder Law pertain exclusively to seniors, Elder Law also encompasses disability planning for clients of all ages. Proper planning ensures that a family member with special needs is provided for while putting the minds of family members at ease. We will review each unique situation and provide long term care options including trust options, valuable government programs and other valuable services.

  • Disability planning (including Special Needs Trusts)
  • Long-term care issues (including Medicare and Insurance)
  • Asset protection planning
  • Medicaid qualification
  • Guardianship issues
  • Veteran’s benefits
  • Nursing home and assisted living issues

The PS&E team is willing to go the extra step to assist a client, including visiting with the client at their home, hospital, assisted living facility or nursing home if travel is difficult for them.
