Elder Law & Medicaid Planning

Find peace of mind at The Floyd Law Firm PC.

Whether you have children or not, having a plan in place for your care as you age removes any uncertainty and worry over your future well-being. An effective estate plan can include a Will, trusts, powers of attorney for healthcare and property decisions, and advance health directives such as living Wills and healthcare proxy. Many clients can also request Medicaid Planning advice to help in lessening the economic impact of long-term care. The cost of elder care over many years can often catastrophic for elderly, middle-class individuals and couples. Our attorneys are sensitive to your needs for proper planning.

We aim to make the process go smoothly for you.

We can often complete an initial planning consultation in about an hour. Our focus will center upon gathering the essential information that we need in order to get started. We want to understand what your goals and needs are, and we can begin outlining what planning tools may be best suited to your individual situation. Our extensive experience allows us to create effective plans that can include estate and trust planning, tax planning, and other more complicated details. We work with tax experts and other professionals as needed to ensure that we are able to best serve your specific needs.

There is a great deal of demand for information and help for seniors now, with 80 million baby boomers reaching their golden years. As per statistical data shared by AARP and the Pew Research Center, in January 2011, the oldest post-World War II baby boomers began turning 65. Since then, roughly 10,000 boomers have celebrated their 65th birthday every single day in the United States. Many available resources such as Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security are controlled at the federal level. An experienced attorney committed to the practice of Elder Law continues to pay close attention to changes in legislation that affect seniors.

Many legal issues can arise when one is facing illness, aging, disability, or a chronic condition. It can be very stressful. We will help you plan ahead via the services that are most appropriate for your situation and for the circumstances of your loved ones.
