Advocating for The Elderly and their Loved Ones
Elder law is an area of practice that focuses on all of these aspects of aging and more. Specifically, it is designed to protect the needs and interests of the elderly. Typically, an elder law attorney will help with estate planning, disability planning, elder abuse, estate settlement, guardianship, Medicaid planning and conservatorship. The Law Office of Michelangelo Mortellaro, P.A. can help detail the best path for you and your loved future’s future.
Sophisticated Planning for Sophisticated Needs
From estate to tax planning, Medicare set-up to trusts, it’s not easy for an elderly person to fully grasp the ins-and- outs, benefits and drawbacks of various planning measures. Many practitioners who don’t specialize in law for the elderly also lack the experience and knowledge to fully consider all the consequences of various planning moves. The sophisticated planning needs of the elderly deserve the attentions of a professional who is well versed in elder law. Not only will this help ensure that all the plans work to the client’s benefit, it will also ensure that the proper consideration is made for their unique concerns and place in life.
