Elder Law essentially concerns the complex legal issues often faced by seniors as they age. Such issues can fall within a wide range of practice areas. At FJ, we have experienced attorneys who are able to offer a full complement of services specifically tailored to meet the needs and concerns of our senior clients and their families.
Our attorneys routinely provide services related to Medicaid planning, veterans’ benefits planning, guardianship actions, elder neglect and abuse, estate planning through the use of wills, trusts and other estate documents, the preparation of Miller Trusts and Special Needs Trusts, planning for incapacity through the use of durable powers of attorney, advance health care directives and related documents and trust and estate administration.
Additionally, our attorneys handle litigation concerning the above matters plus breaches of fiduciary duties, convenience accounts, partition actions and removal of fiduciaries, all of which can also fall into this broad practice area.
