Elder clients and their families may have legal problems which involve specialized concerns and may need certain expertise to solve. These issues may cause stress and anxiety for both the elder and caregivers.
Elder Law is not defined by a specific set of laws, but instead involves a specific group of clients. Axley attorneys use an inter-disciplinary approach involving estate planning; business succession planning; gift and estate tax law; health care and disability planning; and knowledge of government programs such as Medicare or Medicaid to address the unique needs of elder clients. Legal issues may also include guardianships; living wills; health care and financial powers of attorney in an effort to avoid guardianship; planning for nursing home or assisted living care; and associated economic issues.
At Axley, the needs and well-being of the clients come first. And because each client’s situation is different from one another, each client receives individual attention to ensure full understanding and contentment with his or her estate and legal plans.
