What Is Elder Law?
Elder law is a specialized area of legal practice that focuses on the unique needs and challenges faced by older individuals. It encompasses a variety of legal issues that are particularly relevant to seniors, such as estate planning, long-term care, guardianships, and government benefits. Our compassionate Catasauqua elder law attorney can help you or your loved one navigate the complexities of planning for the future, getting financial affairs in order, addressing healthcare concerns, and more! Our firm is passionate about providing the legal support seniors need to help them maintain their dignity, autonomy, and quality of life as they advance through their golden years.
Our Attentive Catasauqua Elder Law Attorney Can Help You Navigate…
This is a critical step for anyone (not just seniors!) to take in order to determine how their assets will be managed for the remainder of their lifetime, in the event of incapacitation, and after their death. Unfortunately, many fall victim to online “DIY” estate planning kits which often do not comply with Pennsylvania’s laws, leading judges to rule that they are not legally valid. It is crucial to allow our Catasauqua elder law attorney to assist you in the estate planning process to not only guarantee that your documents are legally compliant, but to ensure that your unique family dynamics and financial circumstances are taken into account.
The cost of nursing homes and other long-term care services are steep and rapidly rising. Most private insurances, as well as Medicare, do not cover these expenses, and paying out of pocket can drastically affect a senior’s wealth (and the inheritance they planned to leave their children and grandchildren). Medicaid is a government assistance program that can cover nursing home costs, but only those who meet the income requirements can qualify. However, by planning ahead and protecting assets using trusts and other legal tools, it is possible for seniors to safeguard their life savings while also qualifying for Medicaid benefits.
Guardianships are a legal tool that may become necessary if a time comes in a senior’s life when they are no longer able to care for themselves. The court can appoint an individual, likely a family member or caregiver, to serve as their legal guardian and be responsible for deciding where the elderly individual lives, arranging their medical care, maintaining their finances, ensuring their physical and social activity, and more. It is complicated and expensive to petition for a guardianship if not handled correctly, but our Catasauqua elder law attorney can guarantee a quicker, more efficient outcome.

*We highly recommend Joshua Daly for Elder Law, wills, etc. This is something that people don’t know what can happen when your parents pass away or what to do. Josh helps prevent as much as you legally can the home and assets being taken by elder care home and/or govt.
What a great experience on a subject people don’t like to talk about but is so important. Josh makes this process pleasant. We are recommending Josh to all our friend and family and friends. Everyone should get their ducks in a row. I am glad we met Josh & finally did this!
Thank you Josh
