The practice of “Elder Law” is akin to the practice of Family Law in many ways, with one great exception–in Elder Law matters, the roles are often reversed and  adult children present legal issues involving their elderly parents.   These issues are varied and sometimes complex, but always emotionally charged.  The adult children may disagree and the parents may be unwilling or unable to participate in the decision making.  Parents or children may receive erroneous advice about transferring of assets between parents and their children, which, if implemented, may disqualify the parent from receiving Medicaid assistance.  We assist the family with the following types of issues:

  • Medicaid Qualification
  • Veteran’s Aid and Attendance Qualification
  • Wills and Trusts
  • Transfer of Assets
  • Asset Protection
  • Powers of Attorney for Finances and Health Care
  • Advance Health Care Directive (Living Will) for End of Life Medical Decisions
  • Adult Guardianship
  • Elder Abuse and Exploitation

Don’t take a chance  with advice found on the internet or given by another family member or attorney whose practice areas don’t typically involve Elder Law.  Contact the law firm of Peter G. Milne, P.C. for all issues involving the elderly.
