Elder Law

Seniors and their families face complicated issues that arise as a result of aging, illness, or disability. These problems can be financially and emotionally overwhelming; however proper planning can be of great assistance in managing many issues. Unfortunately, in some cases, legal proceedings such as guardianships must be initiated when planning is lacking or inadequate. Our firm has many years of experience in planning as well as with the court actions that must be initiated when planning fails.

Illness, divorce, death, and other life changes can result in complicated issues related to finances, caregiving, and living arrangements.  The financial stability of the family may be affected. This firm is familiar with resources available in both rural and urban areas of the state and can guide and advocate for the family as it negotiates these confusing and overwhelming changes.  This firm also handles the very difficult problems of financial exploitation, abuse, and neglect.

I had a consultation with Susan regarding my marriage that was toxic both for myself and my children. She listened and helped me see that things were even more abusive than I was even letting myself see. Even though I couldn't retain her she and Linda helped me find resources to help my situation. My battle isn't over by any means but I will forever be thankful that they helped me begin. Thank You
