Phoenix Estate Planning Lawyers
Experienced Estate Planning and Elder Law Representation
As the baby boomer generation continues to advance in age, more and more individuals and families will encounter complex elder law and estate planning issues relating to health concerns, Medicare, Medicaid and nursing home care. These issues are often very complex, and should be addressed with the assistance of an experienced attorney.
At Gorman & Jones, PLC, our Phoenix estate planning attorneys offer detailed support on a wide range of estate planning issues often faced by elderly individuals and their loved ones.
Medicare and Medicaid
Medicare and Medicaid are important benefits programs that provide support for individuals seeking nursing home care without the necessary funds to cover the expense. Unfortunately, qualification criteria for these programs can be strict, leaving some elderly individuals without the means to cover the care they so desperately need, and deserve. Our attorneys are well versed in addressing a wide range of Medicare and Medicaid planning issues, and offer advice on the creation of Millers Trusts, a strategy designed to help individuals qualify for vital benefits.
Nursing home and medical care
Nursing home care is expensive — without the proper planning, nursing home costs may wipe out the bulk of your estate. Our attorneys offer advice on many strategies for covering nursing home costs and protecting the assets your family deserves to retain.
In the unfortunate event that a loved one becomes unable to make important decisions regarding their health care, a conservator may step in to shoulder the responsibility. In fact, state law demands that a conservator be appointed in these situations, but appointing one well in advance can be a helpful way to avoid unnecessary confusion and emotional strain when the time comes for the conservator to step in.
Our staff offers helpful advice on creating a conservatorship during the initial estate planning process, and in situations involving an incapacitated loved one.
