While many people view elder law as related solely to Medicaid and Medicare planning, it actually covers a broad area of law targeted at making prudent long-term financial and healthcare decisions for older Americans. At Gaines, Novick, Ponzini, Cossu & Venditti, LLP, we have significant experience helping clients preserve their assets and prepare their estate for a situation where they may need to move into an assisted living environment.

Elder law planning uses many of the same tools and techniques as estate planning to protect and preserve wealth. However, the objective of elder law planning is different. Though similar to estate planning, the strategies employed here are intended to minimize the assets our clients control—in an effort to qualify for government entitlement programs, and maximize the income and assets that are transferred to the next generation. Some of the techniques we commonly employ include:
Many of our clients have spent a lifetime building businesses and creating wealth. They trust our firm to protect each beneficiary through effective estate planning. We work to ensure that our clients are in the best position to preserve the legacy they have built, while they turn to Medicaid and Medicare for long-term care and healthcare benefits.
In addition to wealth preservation, our elder law attorneys help clients draft advance healthcare directives and healthcare powers of attorney to ensure that there is a clear plan to deal with medical issues. We recognize that elder law planning is multifaceted and are committed to helping ensure our clients’ long-term financial and medical interests are protected.
