About The Elder Care Firm

Excellence in Estate and Long-term Care Planning


Lawyers for the second half of life

The Elder Care Firm has a unique way of serving clients where we don’t just prepare a set of documents and send them on their way. Instead, we're about you and your goals as you plan for the second half of life.

To further that holistic, relationship based focus, we have unique programs to help facilitate that goal: The Client Care Program and Life Care Program.

Any estate planning lawyer can prepare a will or a trust for you, but not all plans are created equal. We don't just focus on what happens if you pass away, we focus on what happens if you don't, you continue to age, and face all the issues that go along with aging.

At The Elder Care Firm, we focus on protecting you from the devastating cost of long-term care and the other threats and events that can happen to good people. Our asset protection focus helps good families protect themselves from long-term care costs, unnessary taxes, law suits and probate costs.

To get started, attend one of our weekly fast paced, informative and fun LifeCare Planning Workshops.

Client Care Program and Life Care Program

Estate planning and elder law planning is not a “one and done” proposition. As our lives change through marriage, divorce, having children, aging, or a diagnosis of chronic illness, it is important that our legal planning stays up to date. Changes in our financial situation and to the law itself must be taken into account as well.
