Elder law is a broad term used to cover a range of legal issues relating to an aging population. We provide a comprehensive approach to give our clients options for possible future scenarios:
- Medicaid (MassHealth) planning — While we are primarily focused on protecting family assets from the costs of long-term care, often the time necessary to ensure that protection is not available. However, regardless of the time constraints, we offer our expertise in qualifying clients for Medicaid (MassHealth) assistance through trust strategies, life estates, annuities, and other proven strategies.
- Tax planning and succession — We are well-versed in the use of trusts, gifting exclusions and asset protection tools to ensure your estate passes to heirs with minimal exposure to taxation, creditors and probate complications.
- All elder law issues — Funeral plans, charity legacy, elder financial abuse, guardianship, conservatorship, special needs trusts and more.
