About Your Elder Law & Life Care Planning Team

Our comprehensive approach to providing services to our elder clients and their families includes both legal and long-term care planning services. On the legal side, we provide general (non-taxable) estate planning services and counsel clients about planning for incapacity with alternative decision making documents. If long-term care planning is necessary, we can locate the appropriate type of care, coordinate private and public resources to finance the cost of care, and work to ensure each client’s right to quality care.

Your elder law team includes Marsha Goodman, Attorney; Tish Guzman, Elder Care Coordinator, and other staff members who will be working for you and with you and your family.
