- Elder Law and Asset Protection from Nursing Home Costs - You do not need to become impoverished due to your spouse’s nursing home costs. We help protect assets from nursing home costs, legally. There are federal and state rules that prevent spousal impoverishment. We can handle the Resource Assessment and Medicaid application paperwork.
- Estate Planning Documents - Leave your estate to the loved ones who you wish to inherit, and put the right people in charge. Proper planning can go a long way toward avoiding family disputes. If you don’t have the right documents in place then your estate can pass to the wrong people according Pennsylvania’s intestacy law.
- Estate and Trust Administration - We help executors and trustees avoid mistakes and potential liability. We’ll help you collect and value the assets, deal with creditors, prepare the tax returns, and facilitate timely distribution to the beneficiaries with a written agreement that protects the executor or trustee from personal liability.
