As the average lifespan continues to increase, so does the likelihood that seniors will find themselves in need of an attorney who specializes in the issues they will face during this portion of their lives. This specialization is called elder law, and it prioritizes meeting the goals and objectives of older clients and their families by using a variety of legal tools and techniques. Elder law is an increasingly complex domain because state laws and federal guidelines are constantly changing, and it can be difficult for the elderly or the disabled to try and figure them out on their own. 

Luckily, our lead Orefield elder law attorney, Joshua Daly is dedicated to ensuring his clients have everything they need to spend their retirement years without stress or uncertainty! He has over 15 years of experience and is a member of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA). Call today to schedule your free consultation and learn more about how we can navigate you or your loved one through an elder law matter such as:

Estate Planning

While everyone – no matter their age – should take the time to create a comprehensive estate plan, it can be especially crucial for seniors to ensure that their hard-earned life’s wealth is protected in their later years. Our skilled Orefield elder law attorney takes the time to get an understanding of each client’s unique personal and financial goals, so that he can personalize their plan as much as possible. By using tools like wills, trusts, advance directives, power of attorney, and more, individuals can have peace of mind that their assets (all the money and property they own) will be divided and distributed according to their wishes, and that their family will be spared from unnecessary legal drama!

Medicaid Planning

In Pennsylvania, the average cost of a nursing home is around $12,000 per month, and is not covered by most private insurances or Medicare. Medicaid is a government assistance program that can cover nursing home expenses, but only those who qualify by income. Through a process called Medicaid planning, utilizing tools like trusts, our Orefield elder law attorney can help seniors not only plan ahead to qualify for Medicaid, but protect their life savings from being severely affected by exorbitant long-term care costs. 

Medicaid planning is a time-sensitive process, because the government will conduct what’s known as a 5-year “look back” at an individual’s finances. This means that any large transactions within the last five years (such as spending sprees or gifts to relatives) will be taken into account. It’s imperative that you take the first step sooner rather than later, because you never know when an emergency might arise and put you or your loved one in need of a nursing home or other long-term care service!

Financial Representation

During their Golden Years, many seniors also find themselves in need of other government benefits, such as Social Security, disability, veteran’s aid, and more. These applications are tedious and complex, and even simple mistakes could put your or your loved one’s approval at risk. Our knowledgeable Orefield elder law attorney can give you an advantage and put you in the best position for the results you desire. In addition, he can guide seniors and their families through financial planning, including tax planning, securing their assets from creditors, heavy taxes, and court costs!

*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
