“When considering if you need to hire an estate planning lawyer, consider this - estate planning is serious business. One wrong word or one missing signature can change the entire intent of a will or trust.

 

I will state my usual here, that I am no financial guru, nor am I licensed in any of these fields. This is a series that I am putting together for my sons and six granddaughters and sharing the information

 

Elder law attorneys handle a wide range of legal matters affecting an older or disabled person, including issues related to health care, long term care planning, guardianship, retirement, Social Security, Medicare/Medicaid, and other important matters.

Not only can they handle important financial and estate planning matters, they also take care of day-to-day issues affecting the actual care of seniors, such as assisted living and
life planning.

In addition, elder law attorneys are often more equipped to handle the sensitive emotional and physical needs of older or disabled adults, and are therefore able to handle a variety of challenging situations.

How Can an Elder Law Attorney Help Me?

An elder law attorney can help with any one of the following:

 

  • Discuss the importance of wills and estate planning, including planning for a minor or adult with special needs, probate proceedings, and other matters.
  • Create a durable power of attorney.
  • Provide help with health care and planning, including long term care options, patient rights, Medicare, and health care power of attorney.
  • Financial representation: financial planning (including durable financial power of attorney), housing opportunities and planning, income, estate, and gift tax matters.
  • Guardianship: help with the selection and appointment of a legal guardian.
  • Help locate long term care facilities and manage assisted living cost.
  • Explain nursing home resident rights and help file nursing home claims.
  • Draft a living will or other advance directives, including a durable power of attorney and long term planning documents.

Most elder law attorneys do not specialize in every area of law affecting seniors, so it is important to hire an attorney who has experience in your particular area of concern. Also, before selecting an elder law attorney, you should feel comfortable that he or she will represent you or your loved one in a sensitive and understanding manner.

Here are some questions you should ask:

  • How long have you been practicing law?
  • What percentage of your time is devoted to elder law?
  • Do you have a particular emphasis on a certain area within elder law?
  • What information should I prepare for our first meeting?
  • How are your fees computed?

The basics of advance directives, legally binding documents that allow individuals to express their medical wishes before an illness or accident makes them unable to do so.
