Our Services

ELDER LAW:  Elder Law is a distinct legal field focusing on the legal, financial, social and healthcare needs of seniors. As we age, many of us are faced with difficult and important health-related and financial decisions. To ensure our continued well-being, it is helpful to evaluate the many legal, medical and financial issues affecting us at various times in our lives. Timely and comprehensive information can help us make the best possible choices for our families and ourselves.

As Elder law attorneys, we holistically assess the needs of each client, helping them navigate the legal issues associated with the aging process. We also work hard to protect seniors’ rights, and to prevent their exploitation, abuse, and neglect. Our practice is built on compassion, care, and concern for the older client.

Our senior services typically include a combination of the following:

  • Estate Planning
  • Medi-Cal Planning & Asset Protection
  • Long-Term Care Planning
  • Disability Planning
  • Elder Abuse Prevention and Litigation
  • Medicare, Social Security & Veterans Benefits

ESTATE PLANNING:  Whether our clients need simple wills or complex trusts, we protect and preserve their assets and ensure that they and their families are well cared for.

We custom-tailor plans to suit each client’s needs with the following:

  • Wills & Living Trusts
  • Advance Health Care Directives
  • Financial Powers of Attorney
  • Conservatorships
  • Special Needs Trusts   
  • Probate & Trust Administration
