Reilly Wolfson provides comprehensive services for individuals and families concerned about estate planning, medical assistance planning including Medicare or Medicaid, asset preservation, and other problems faced by seniors.
We provide dependable assistance to meet the expenses involved with residential or in-home care after the exhaustion of Medicare benefits. Our lawyers can also help resolve issues related to the care and treatment at nursing homes or other licensed facilities.
Wills and Estate Planning
Our elder law attorneys can assist with wills, living wills and powers of attorney if these important instruments are not already in place. We can also counsel these trusted persons as they make important financial and medical decisions according to pre-determined criteria, if you become incapable of managing your own affairs. Powers of attorney can also avoid the need for guardianship proceedings if during a period of incapacity it becomes clear that help with the management of medical treatment, finances, or the basic demands of daily living is necessary.
If you or someone in your family is facing the possibility of guardianship proceedings, we can advise you about what’s involved in convincing a court to appoint a guardian for someone who can no longer look after their own interests. Guardianship cases are often difficult to prove, divide families, and generate significant administrative and accounting expenses. We can represent either side of a guardianship petition, but ideally, your previous estate planning will have found less intrusive and expensive ways of protecting you and your loved one.
