Dignity And Respect Are The Cornerstones Of Our Practice

An estate planning and elder law practice covers a wide array of legal services for clients of all ages. While the goals of seniors and younger clients may vary, we are committed to achieving your goals. Our mission at is to help you age with dignity and peace of mind.

Whether you are seeking our legal services for yourself or on behalf of a parent, you deserve to be treated with dignity and respect. Our elderly clients and their families commend us for our elder-centered approach to law. We treat all elders with respect and honesty regardless of age, physical ability or decision-making impairment. In a number of cases, clients have come to us after visiting a lawyer who fell far short of this standard.

While the children of elders are often involved in planning issues for their parents, our practice focuses on the needs and objectives of the elders. After all, we are “elder law attorneys.”

For younger clients, we help them ensure that if they become incapacitated or pass away, their assets are protected for any minor children. In addition, depending on the clients’ goals, we help minimize general liability risks, protect assets to the maximum extent achievable under the law, and eliminate or minimize estate taxes.

Located in Wakefield, assists clients throughout Massachusetts with elder law and estate planning matters. Our law practice spans over four decades and thousands of clients. We handle only estate planning and elder law matters, so you can rely on our up-to-date information and experienced advice.

Experienced Massachusetts Elder Law And Estate Planning Representation

We pride ourselves on providing clients with excellent advice and assistance in elder law and estate planning matters, including the following:

Elder law: Our elder law practice includes crisis matters such as Medicaid (MassHealth), hospitalization, nursing home care or death, and noncrisis matters such as asset protection planning, long-term care concerns for a loved one and estate planning.

Estate planning: Our estate planning practice includes wills, trusts, health care proxies, HIPAA authorizations, living wills and durable powers of attorney. The health care proxy and durable power of attorney are essential so that you have appointed someone you trust to make decisions on your behalf should you become incapacitated.

Medicaid planning (a.k.a. MassHealth): Our elder law attorneys can assist you and your family with preparing for Medicaid and obtaining your Medicaid benefits, or MassHealth as it is referred to in Massachusetts.

Asset protection: Our asset protection planning attorneys utilize estate planning tools, including various trusts, to protect your hard-earned assets for yourself and future generations.

Probate: We assist clients throughout eastern Massachusetts with probate issues, including loved ones who die intestate (without a will) and those who die with a valid will. We also assist estate administrators and executors with performing their legal obligations.

Guardianship and conservatorship: Our guardianship lawyers assist individuals and families with guardianship issues, including ensuring that a responsible person can make health, financial and estate planning decisions for children or adults whose decision-making capacity is impaired.
