Thies & Lihn, PLLC Offering Free Estate Planning Consultations

There is a great deal more to consider in estate planning than which relatives to nominate as inheritors of your various assets. It is in your best interest to consider a variety of legal preparations, and you’ll want to take your time making such decisions. This is why it’s critical to get started before moving into a nursing home, experiencing a major health scare, or making a significant age-related transition. If you work with an attorney to get your affairs in order earlier on, you (and your family) will be glad you did.

What Can an Elder Lawyer Do for Me?

Elder law attorneys and estate planners offer a wide variety of services to help you as you age and will do everything possible to ensure your future passing is as smooth as possible for your family - legally and financially speaking. You and your elder lawyer can work together to determine any (or all) of the following:

  • Durable power of attorney
  • Advance directives
  • Creation and terms of a living will
  • Financial and estate representation, including planning, real estate, investments, etc.
  • Health care planning (This includes making sure you know your rights and options regarding Medicaid/Medicare and your healthcare plan and as a potential resident in a long-term healthcare facility such as a nursing home. With the staggering number of seniors who are exploited due to lack of understanding of their rights and coverage, you should create a detailed health care plan with an experienced elder law attorney right away.)
  • Guardianship of any minor children or impaired adult children

What Do I Need to Know Before Meeting with an Elder Law Attorney?
