Areas of Practice

Medi-Cal (Medicaid) Planning

Long-term care for elderly adults is expensive, and many families worry about how they will pay for it when a parent or grandparent reaches the point where they may need round-the-clock care. This entire process can be daunting. However, there is light at the end of the tunnel, and if you plan correctly, nearly anyone can qualify for long-term Medi-Cal care benefits without having to burn through their savings and assets.

Advance Health Care Directives & Durable Powers of Attorney
A Power of Attorney document for both financial and health-related issues is a document that every adult over the age of 18 should have. Both documents legally appoint a person to handle your affairs in the situation where you are unable to do so yourself. Without a Power of Attorney, your family members will have to go through the courts before any decisions can be made on your behalf (if for example, you are incapacitated because of an accident).

Living Trusts & Estate Planning
The key to a great estate plan is a Living Trust. More and more people are opting for trusts over wills because they avoid the probate (court) process and save time and money when distributing assets to beneficiaries and heirs. If you have assets to protect, creating a Living Trust may be the best plan of action for you. Of course, there are various types of trust and options to choose. The key is to consult with an experienced estate planning attorney who can draft a document that meets your family’s specific needs.

Special Needs Trusts
Everyone has different needs and challenges when planning for the future. That statement applies to those who have family members unable to work, care for themselves, or live independently. Elder Law Services works diligently with our clients to draft trusts that specifically meet their unique family situations.

Asset Preservation

Almost anyone can qualify for Medi-Cal care benefits without losing their assets. Many seniors and their family remain in the dark about that fact and end up paying for expensive nursing home care out of their own pockets. We can help you protect those assets and make legal transfers of property without generating any Medi-Cal ineligibility periods.

Long-Term Care Planning
Long-term care in a nursing home or other facility is expensive and will exhaust all your savings. However, planning for long-term care before you or a family member ever needs it can help to protect assets and life savings. Consulting with an experienced elder law attorney who understands the complicated process is an essential part of planning for the future.

Probate (with or without a will)
Probate is a lengthy, complicated and expensive process that will only add undue stress after a loved one passes away. Even if the deceased left a will, the estate would still have to go through probate to settle that person’s final affairs. The cost of probate can be up to seven percent (sometimes more) of the gross value of the estate. If you are in probate, the most prudent plan of action is to contact an experienced lawyer to help handle the process.

Trust Administration
One of the biggest drawing points of a Living Trust is that the document does not have to pass through probate court and can be administered privately. However, what many people fail to realize is that a trust still needs to be managed after the creator of the document passes away. The Administration process can be difficult and time consuming which is why consulting a trust administration attorney is the smartest plan of action.
