Stay at Home- Zoom Meetings Now Available!


In light of new mandates from the government regarding COVID-19 and social distancing, our firm is implementing virtual consultations in an effort to protect our often elderly and/or immunocompromised clients. Until further notice, Zoom conferences will be our default meeting platform unless there are circumstances that require an in-person meeting. We can also accommodate other platforms such as Face Time. Zoom is an easy to use video conferencing system that works on a tablet, smart phone or computer. Our Intake Coordinator, Kim Smith, will outline in detail how your first conference with our office will be conducted via Zoom.


Rest assured that whether you are comfortable with video conferencing technology or not, our team is working hard to ensure the legal needs’ of our clients and their families are met in the safest and most efficient way possible.


Thank you for your understanding and patience in these unprecedented times.

Our law firm focuses on helping older and disabled persons with their legal needs. This could include assistance with paying for skilled care, ensuring their wishes are honored, protecting assets through a special needs trust or other type of trust, protecting existing government benefits if ongoing benefit coverage is threatened, and other issues related to aging, illness, and family planning. In addition, we help people of all ages with estate planning and tax planning issues for passing wealth after death without the need for probate and planning for the possibility of future incapacity.

Dignity. Advocacy. Answers.

An Education-Based, Client-Centered Approach.

Our law firm understands there is no easy button to push to fix your serious concerns. We are not interested in dumbing-down or over-simplifying your issues. We are not into gimmicks. Our legal team understands the complexities and risks of your decisions. We believe in walking this journey together with an education-based, client-centered approach.

Together, We Will Explore the Options That Will Protect & Serve You Best.

We know that legal planning in the areas of long-term care planning, estate planning, and asset preservation can be confusing and unfamiliar for many people. Whether it is learning to navigate the Medicaid system, understanding laws that effect you or a disabled or elderly family member, or understanding documents we have prepared for you, personal attention to your case matters. You should feel comfortable with the options, the approach, and be an active part of the solution.
