Dutchess County Elder Law Attorney

Less a separate legal entity and more an extension of Estate Planning, Elder Law focuses on clients with a very specific set of needs. My Elder Law practice assists the elderly and their families as they address long-term care and planning issues. With a variety of resources, legal tools and techniques that can be structured to provide for the needs of all clients, I will provide you with the direction and strategies necessary to protect those who may be unable to care or provide for themselves.

Your Future Planning Adviser For Today's Priorities And Tomorrow's Uncertainties

I help my clients look beyond their immediate needs and consider long-term options. Some common issues to address include: finding a nursing home, plans for dealing with the sudden onset of a debilitating injury or illness, as well as other issues that may play a role five, 10 or 20 years down the road.

When you meet with me, we will discuss all potential issues, review existing documents and establish any combination of the following to protect your benefits and estate:

  • Powers of Attorney and Statutory Gift Rider
  • Medicaid planning
  • Guardianships
  • Long-term care issues
  • Health care, nursing home and independent living issues
  • Trusts to protect real estate and other assets, including Revocable and Irrevocable Trusts
  • Probate and Estate administration
  • Special needs planning
