Areas of Practice
Estate Planning is all about one’s family and estate and determining the tools which shall be utilized to attain one’s ultimate goal. It is about taking responsibility to ensure that one’s assets are preserved and used for the benefit of those you love. Planning your estate is critically important if you want to make certain that your life’s assets are properly given to the people or institutions that matter to you.
Guardianships and Special Needs Planning
When an adult becomes incapacitated or disabled and is no longer capable of handling personal or financial affairs a guardianship can be established through a court proceeding so that a relative, friend, or in some cases an organization or attorney appointed by the court can make decisions on behalf of the incapacitated or disabled individual.
Asset protection is not only for the wealthy. Most everyone can take advantage of legally re-organizing their resources to protect them for their loved ones. The most effective way to accomplish this type of protection speak to an experienced and qualified elder law attorney. If you find yourself with a loved one facing long term care, it is not necessarily too late to protect assets. Medicaid has some very specific and strict rules regarding asset protection strategies. You will need an experienced and qualified elder law attorney to help you through this complicated critical crisis planning.
Elder Law is a holistic approach to the unique legal needs of our older clients. It incorporates not only traditional estate planning and trust administration, such as drafting wills, trusts, but also includes the analysis and planning for government benefits such as Medicaid. There is a particular focus on planning for long term care, which includes not only the use of government benefits, but also identifying and advocating for housing, social and other financial needs.
Residential Real Estate
Buying or selling a home in Dutchess or Ulster County is likely the most important financial transaction that anyone undertakes in their lifetime. While this can undoubtedly be an exciting time, without the proper legal guidance, the process can be frustrating, overwhelming and more expensive than necessary.
