Elder Law Attorneys

Our focused experience with families relating to nursing home admissions and Medicaid approvals will give you peace of mind. We solely work with legal concerns of an aging population and their families.

We have experienced elder lawyers to help assist you in planning and solving your estate planning issues. We provide elder law planning for couples and individuals who either need to focus on eventual Medicaid eligibility to those who need protection of their assets from family members or “new friends.” We also create trusts for individuals and couples seeking to avoid probate, save assets and/or protect special needs children.

We help seniors and their families discover their legal options regarding VA Aid & Attendance as well as Alabama Medicaid. We do this so seniors can get the care they need without losing all of their assets.
