Asset Protection and Elder Law Attorneys

As the U.S. population gets older, the cost of long-term care has become a major factor in many people’s financial planning decisions. An experienced elder law attorney can help you ensure that your assets and your family are protected to the greatest extent possible.

At JDKatz: Attorneys at Law, our team of knowledgeable lawyers and professionals have many years of experience helping clients understand their options and implement sophisticated elder planning strategies. Our services in this area include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Advising clients on Medicare and Medicaid rules
  • Identifying and addressing “problem assets” for Medicaid
  • Helping families apply for Medicaid and appeal Medicaid denials
  • Reviewing nursing home, assisted living and continuing care contracts
  • Reviewing long-term care insurance contracts
  • Drafting caregiver agreements, leases and promissory notes
  • Assisting with retitling strategies for asset protection
  • Establishing and administering guardianships and conservatorships

Without proper planning, a lifetime of savings can quickly evaporate. The development of a well-thought-out strategy, taking into consideration federal and state laws as well as county practices and policies, is crucial to successful asset preservation and Medicaid planning.

In addition to our highly qualified attorneys, our firm also employs a former hospital administrator with a master’s degree in public health. We have the resources and experience to guide you and your family through the elder planning process.
