A lawyer dedicated to seniors' healthcare issues

Your health and quality of life depend upon access to good medical care. We assist you in maneuvering through the frustrating red tape of Medicare, Medicaid and private insurance companies to ensure you receive the medical care and medications you need. We address your concerns about your future medical care and shepherd you through difficult end-of-life decisions, always respectful of the family, cultural, religious and philosophical reasons for your personal choices. We can draft valid medical documents that make certain your intentions will be honored if the time comes when you are no longer able to make these decisions for yourself. 

A compassionate lawyer guiding seniors through estate planning

Often one of the most pressing concerns facing seniors is the care and security of their families upon their death. After attentively listening to your wishes, we carefully analyze your estate and advise you on how best to transfer your assets, minimize estate taxes, establish guardianship for minor children, support personal philanthropic causes and even protect a beloved pet. We can draft a will that reflects your desires and establish living trusts and other legal entities beneficial to your estate. 

Going the extra mile to protect seniors' rights

Seniors are often the target of unscrupulous fraudsters and abusive caretakers. If you are the victim of a financial scam, nursing-home negligence or domestic violence, we can help. We first make sure you are in a safe place, and we then pursue all available legal means to safeguard your well-being and dignity.
