Lawyer dedicated to seniors’ healthcare

Access to good medical care is essential to your health and quality of life. I assist in maneuvering through the red tape of Medicare, Medicaid and private insurance companies to ensure you receive the medical treatments, diagnostic tests and medications you need. I can help you plan your future medical care and make crucial legal end-of-life decisions. I can draft legally valid medical documents that ensure your intentions are honored if you are no longer able to make decisions for yourself.

Skilled lawyer assisting seniors with estate planning

I can advise you on the most successful approach to your estate planning goals. Through meticulous analysis, I determine the best path for you and guide you on how to transfer your assets, minimize estate taxes, establish guardianship for minor children, support personal philanthropic causes and even protect a beloved pet. I can draft a will that reflects your desires and establish living trusts and other legal entities, if beneficial to your estate.

Maintain financial independence with guidance from a knowledgeable lawyer

Retirement gives you the opportunity to enjoy family and hobbies, but if your retirement is not well-planned, living on a fixed income can create financial stress. I can help you organize your affairs and plan for your retirement. If you choose to continue working, I am prepared to protect your rights in the workplace.
