Everyone’s situation is unique. Find out how we can help you get your plan in place for what matters most to you. Call us at 509-468-0551 and let's begin the conversation today to secure your future.
Next Step: The Consultation
We offer consultations in person, by phone or internet. You will meet with an experienced member of our Team who will speak with you one on one about your goals and concerns. Whether you are interested in Estate Planning, Wills, Trusts, Powers of Attorney, Long-Term Care costs, or Medicaid benefits, we will show you how we can help.
The consultation is the opportunity for you to understand more about your situation and how our services can accomplish your goals. That gives you the information you need to decide if we are the right firm for you. If so, we become your lawyers and move to the next step.
Legal Strategy Meeting – Crafting The Plan To Meet Your Needs And Beyond
One of our experienced attorneys will meet with you to give you guidance on legal strategies and options that accomplish your goals. We take the time to make sure you understand your plan and how it works. We provide a detailed, but understandable explanation so you understand your plan, giving you the peace of mind and security you deserve.
As your legal counsel, we work hard to earn your trust so you have complete confidence in your plan. We will be here for you to guide you through it all.
Attorneys You Can Trust
Our attorneys are experienced and dedicated to protecting you and your family. We know Estate Planning. But more than that we know Elder Law, including laws impacting asset
protection for families, and government benefit rules, like Medicaid that pays for Long-Term Care costs without having to spend down all of your money. Government benefit rules are extremely complicated and subject to regulation and rule changes.
Seniors are especially affected, so it really is important to work with Elder Law attorneys and an experienced legal Team, like Elder Law Group. We know the rules, the planning options, and will be there for you as your trusted legal counsel providing the best plan for you.

Here Is A Summary Of The Ways We Can Help You:
Asset Protection Estate Planning™
You can take comfort knowing your loved ones will be taken care of after you are gone. We work closely with you to make sure you, your family, and your assets are protected with Asset Protection Estate Planning. Read more here.
Wills & Asset Protection Trusts
A Will is an important part of Estate Planning. A Will can offer far more protections than just making sure assets are distributed after your death as you intend. You can protect your beneficiaries from creditors, taxes, exploitation, loss of benefits, bad choices, and even Long-Term Care costs. Elder Law Group’s experienced attorneys can answer your questions so you understand how an Asset Protection Will works. Read more here.
Durable Powers of Attorney
The most important legal documents you can have during your lifetime are Durable Powers of Attorney for financial matters and health care / medical decisions. Without good, effective Durable Powers of Attorney, if someone can no longer manage their affairs, the state steps in and impose a court-ordered Guardianship. With good legal documents you can keep the state out of your affairs.
Choosing the right person as your Power of Attorney, also called the “Attorney-in-Fact,” is an extremely important decision. Whomever you choose will have decision-making authority over your property, money, and your health care if you are not able to manage your own affairs. To learn more about Durable Powers of Attorney for both medical and financial decisions, Read more here.
Health Care Directive
To make sure your end-of-life wishes are known and followed, you need a Health Care Directive, also known as an Advance Directive or Living Will. To learn more about how you can protect yourself and help ensure your important medical wishes are carried out, Read more here.
Probate & Trust Administration
Losing a loved one is never easy. The last thing anyone needs when dealing with a death is a difficult probate, estate or trust administration process. We provide clear and compassionate guidance to families regarding post-death estate administration. We can help you determine if probate is necessary or not, and what steps are needed to protect and distribute assets. Read more here.
Long-Term Care Planning
Planning for Long-Term Care is a necessary step in overall Estate Planning. You want to be prepared with good options that fit your family's needs before a crisis happens. We believe that no one should have to choose between quality of care and ensuring your assets are protected. We provide guidance as to resources, not just for care, but government benefits too. Read more here.
Medicaid Asset Preservation Strategies®
Medicaid can be an important part of Long-Term Care and Estate Planning, though it is not appropriate for everyone. Because of our extensive knowledge of Medicaid benefits, we help you understand if your Estate Plan could benefit from available state and federal benefits. Medicaid is an extraordinarily complex area of law, one that Elder Law Group can help you navigate to preserve assets and qualify for Long-Term Care benefits without going broke. Read more here.
