Elder Law Arizona

Elder Law specializes in the legal and care needs of older adults and their families. It is unique as the only area of law defined by the clients we serve rather than the areas of law in which we practice. It takes into account personal values and preferences when discussing long-term planning for health care and financial viability, family dynamics, health care and long-term care decisions. The law recognizes that people whose mental capability is declining may still be able to make some decisions.

Elder law encompasses:

  • Planning for Long Term Care
  • Care coordination
  • Social Security and retirement income planning
  • Medicaid planning
  • An analysis of appropriate VA benefits and planning for eligibility
  • Guardianships and conservatorships
  • Housing and residential care options, including
    • Independent living
    • Assisted-living facilities
    • Skilled nursing facilities
    • Memory care
  • Trust administration
  • Estate administration
  • Estate planning
