Experienced Estate Planning And Elder Law Representation

Attorneys Patrick Curley and Lucy Budman are among just two dozen Certified Elder Law Attorneys (CELAs) in Massachusetts. Attorney Mark Curley has practiced in the areas of estate planning and elder law for over three decades.

The Value of Certified Elder Law Attorneys

The value of working with a firm with CELAs on the team is the peace of mind you receive — knowing that you will get the very best advice available to protect yourself, your family and your assets. A CELA is a recognized expert in legal matters dealing with estate planning and elder law, including trusts, wills, asset protection against Medicaid and nursing home costs, Medicaid (MassHealth) benefits planning and applications, probate and trust administration, guardianship and conservatorship, and VA benefits planning.

At a time when many lawyers claim to practice “elder law,” having a CELA-led team working on your planning means having one of the very few experts in the Commonwealth on YOUR team.
