Orlando Elder Law Attorney
As we age, a new set of legal matters and challenges present themselves, ranging from Medicaid planning to probate administration to guardianship. A lawyer can help protect your assets, plan for nursing home care or assisted living, set up a durable power of attorney and much more. We understand that many of these issues are personal, and we strive to protect our clients’ wishes. However, not only are some of these sensitive matters, but they are time sensitive as well. Getting a head start can help resolve disputes early on or stop problems from occurring in the first place.

Medicaid Planning Attorneys Protecting Your Assets
Bankruptcy hit all age groups hard after the 2007 recession, and 2010 was the highest year of bankruptcy filings since the early 2000s, according to AARP. Medical bankruptcy is a very real threat for millions of seniors today, as wealth and wages have stagnated for years, and people have been retiring with fewer savings. Protecting those savings from the high costs of in-home care, assisted living, skilled-nursing, and nursing home care is an imperative step to take, and a Medicaid planning attorney can help you accomplish this. We assist clients with creating durable power of attorney, creating wills and advanced healthcare directives, creating trusts, and much more.
Orlando Guardianship Attorneys
Elder financial abuse is on the rise, according to the National Adult Protective Services Association. Older adults who cannot manage their own financial affairs, or those who cannot make good medical decisions, may benefit from a guardian. A guardian of a ward, who is deemed incompetent by the court, takes over the legal decision making of that person’s life. We assist all of the following types of clients respectfully and with compassion:
- Senior citizens or disabled people who want a voluntary adult guardianship;
- Adult children who believe that their elderly parents need a guardianship;
- Those who want to fight an involuntary guardianship proceeding;
- Close relatives who want to contest an adult guardianship on behalf of their elderly or disabled relative; and
- A mentally competent spouse who wants to protect the marital assets by becoming their spouse’s guardian.
