TAMPA BAY

ELDER LAW CENTER

 

A private law firm conveniently located one-half block East of Dale Mabry Hwy. in  Tampa, Florida

We handle estate planning for individuals of all ages and we are specially trained to consider the present and future need for nursing home care, assisted living facility (ALF) care, home health care, Veterans benefits, and disability benefits planning. 

 

ELDER LAW


Medicaid planning is one of our areas of practice.  If you or a loved one are faced with a need for nursing home or assisted living facility (ALF) care, and you are concerned that the legacy built over a lifetime will be depleted to care for end-of-life medical expenses, we can offer advice on ways to protect some of those hard-earned assets.

 

We offer crisis planning (now, or soon to be, in need of nursing home or ALF care), or non-crisis planning assistance (planning ahead to protect assets).

 

Just as Federal tax laws provide specific tax loopholes which are legal ways to save on taxes, there are also many legal ways in which an individual may qualify for government benefits while still protecting some of their assets.

 

Please call and schedule an appointment.  Let us explain how we may be able to help you or your loved one.

 

Elder, Probate & Trust Attorney in Tampa, FL

ESTATE PLANNING

We can help you to make the right decisions when it comes to:

  • Wills - Make sure that you are in charge of what happens after your death

 

 

  • Trusts - A powerful way to ensure that your assets are managed in the way that you desire, while helping to avoid the need for probate administration or guardianships.

 

  • Durable Power of Attorney - Allows another individual to handle matters for you.  If you become unable to handle matters yourself, you can feel comfortable in knowing that someone else is able to handle things on your behalf.  A new Durable Power of Attorney law went into effect on October 1, 2011, and it makes significant changes.  Now may be a good time to change a Durable Power of Attorney that you may already have.

 

  • Living Wills - Health Care Surrogate Designations - Advanced Care Directives - A Living Will or an Advanced Care Directive helps you to make your wishes known concerning your medical care and end of life decisions. A Health Care Surrogate Designation allows you to designate someone to make medical decisions on your behalf in the event that you are unable to do so.

 

  • Special Needs Trusts - Help to provide for the unique requirements of those with disabilities, and helps to preserve an individual's entitlement to government benefits.

 

PROBATE ADMINISTRATION

When a loved one passes away, there are so many questions that you may have.  We can guide you through the process of Probate Administration, and let you know what steps need to be taken next.  The loss of a loved one is difficult enough.  Let us work with you to make the Probate Administration process easier.
