Elder law is a combination of numerous legal practice areas such as trusts, estates, estate administration, tax and special needs planning, etc. An experienced lawyer can help you with all of the legal ramifications whether you are enjoying or about to enjoy your retirement.
An elder law attorney is instrumental in applying various asset protection techniques, assisting clients in preserving their assets in order to qualify or maintain Medicaid and pay for long-term care costs. Without an adequate asset protection plan long-term care costs may be cost prohibitive. An elder law attorney is not only for the elderly but is also an estate planning attorney and regularly crafts estate plans for all types of families whether for tax planning purposes, asset protection, or planning for disabled or minor children.
In many instances, the implementation of such techniques commands the experience of an attorney also knowledgeable with tax matters. For instance, it is impossible to prepare a Medicaid Trust for a client without also being able to advise the client of the tax consequences of creating such a trust. Proficiency in the tax law is also imperative where the client is being advised to transfer assets in order to qualify for Medicaid.
