An Elder Law Attorney does more than just meet the legal needs of seniors. He or she also serves as a counselor and consultant on a variety of issues faced by people as they age. If you or someone you love is getting older, consider talking to an Estate Planning firm that specializes in Elder Law. At Ross & Shoalmire, we are committed to helping seniors remain independent as they face life changes, health challenges, financial burdens, and more.
Elder Law Attorneys Serve the Whole Person
Rather than focusing on a specific area of the law, our Elder Law Attorneys focus on a certain type of client. The legal and support services we provide address the needs of seniors across all areas of their life. These are just some of the ways we serve our Elder Law clients:
- Estate planning. It is never too late to plan for the management of your estate during your life and the transfer of your assets upon your death. Revising an existing will or establishing a trust to protect assets from taxes and probate are typical services we provide to seniors.
- Long-term care assistance. We help our clients find affordable, high-quality nursing home care and assist them in finding ways to pay for it without going broke.
- Financial planning. With proper planning, you can protect your assets so you don’t run out of money and become a burden on your family as your healthcare costs increase.
- Healthcare planning. You can’t predict the future, but with smart healthcare planning, you can be prepared for almost anything. We help our clients make decisions about end-of-life care, healthcare powers of attorney, guardianship, and more.
At Ross & Shoalmire, we are committed to guiding our clients through the aging process and providing resources so they can obtain the care they need to maintain the highest possible quality of life.
