Elder law relates to legal issues facing senior citizens. Through various techniques, our firm assists clients in developing plans to protect their assets, especially the family residence, from nursing home costs. With nursing home expenses averaging over $5,000 per month in New Jersey, assets that our clients have worked their entire life to accumulate can be dissipated within a short period of time without proper planning. Elder law planning includes the preparation of documents including wills, trusts, health care proxies, special needs trusts and durable powers of attorney and the implementation of planning strategies in enable clients to receive public benefits. Our firm also assists clients in establishing guardianship for incapacitated adults.
