Here Is A Summary Of The Ways We Can Help You
Asset Protection Estate Planning™
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 imposes 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.
What People Say About Elder Law Group
Elder Law Group is very knowledgeable and helpful. They’re friendly and really care about you and make you feel like family. We were able to meet many of the staff, which was nice and made us realize how involved the process really is. We wanted to be sure our children are able to inherit without nursing homes or the state getting everything. We kept putting it off, thinking we had a few more years with nothing to worry about, but always having it the back of our minds. We are so glad we used them. They have put our minds are at ease knowing it is all taken care of. And all at the cost of a few of days in a nursing home.
First they did a free initial meeting with us and talked about our goals and our estate, then they hooked us up with one of the attorneys who would be a good fit for us. It was a great experience. It’s a very complicated process and they explained everything in terms we understood and were very patient with us. Two of our children are attorneys and recommended Elder Law because of their specialized knowledge and reputation of being the best in the Northwest for estate planning. We highly recommend them.
They were friendly, experienced, knowledgeable and informative. It was comforting to know they were specialized in all areas of estate planning and were current with all the laws and regulations.
They were very professional and easy to work with. Our legal documents were finished much quicker than we expected.
Knowledgeable, professional & personal. So glad we chose Elder Law Group! We read the great reviews and decided to go in for a consultation. They made it so easy for us and the documents were completed quickly. We would recommend our Kennewick attorney Andrea and her paralegal, Sheri. Thank you for your excellent service at this time of our lives.
