Are you caring for a loved one?

There’s no manual for how to step in and take care of a loved one’s financial and personal decisions. Elder law attorneys can be your guide and show you how to meet your loved one’s needs and protect yourself from liability.

Do you have a family member who receives public benefits?​

The rules around public benefits such as SSI and Medicaid are complicated and easy to unintentionally violate. An elder law attorney can keep you on the right path.
