Elder Law

Elder law is a specialized and rapidly developing area of the law encompassing a wide range of services for our senior clients.  At Harrison & Held, LLP, our attorneys incorporate traditional estate planning strategies such as wills, trusts, and powers of attorney with innovative strategies designed to deal with the effects of illness and aging.  We counsel our clients on the benefits of using proactive planning tools such as long-term care insurance if feasible to protect their hard-earned savings. Pre-planning also may involve establishing enhanced financial powers of attorney, planning for incapacity to avoid guardianships, and Medicaid Asset Protection Trusts to preserve assets for future generations.  Given the fact that people are living longer, the potential for needing long-term healthcare that will financially devastate a family increases with every generation.  When you plan in advance, you simply have more options. Our attorneys have the expertise and experience to work with you to design strategies in advance to avoid financial ruin.

Our attorneys guide individuals and their families through the complex and ever-changing maze of laws, rules and regulations of government benefits eligibility of Medicare and Medicaid. We assist and counsel clients utilizing a variety of tools such as caregiver agreements, asset protection trusts, sole benefit trusts, special needs trusts as well as gifting strategies using promissory notes or annuities to help qualify for Medicaid benefits.

Even in a crisis, we can find solutions. Harrison & Held, LLP attorneys establish guardianships to secure and protect seniors from financial exploitation, and when necessary, effectively litigate contested guardianship issues when family controversy arises.

Our firm is best known for its extraordinary personalized, compassionate services offered during the most emotionally challenging and stressful times for an individual or family. With proper advice and planning, we can help preserve your assets and your dignity.
