Fort Myers Elder Care Lawyer

Experienced legal representation can ensure that a person has critical estate planning and long-term care issues properly handled. An experienced elder law attorney can provide invaluable assistance with the following matters:

  • Tax Planning and Estate Settlement — In addition to common estate planning documents like wills, trusts, and powers of attorney, a lawyer can also help a person with numerous tax benefits such as deductions for medical expenses, long-term care insurance, and nursing home or home care services.
  • Medicaid Planning — There are several different Medicaid programs, and matters can be further complicated by a person’s assets and income. Lisbeth Freeman can assist with both crisis and pre-crisis Medicaid planning, helping clients who require nursing home care protect their savings.
  • Veterans Pension and Benefits —Americans who served in the United States Armed Forces are eligible for pension benefits. There are service connected benefits available to those who were injured during military service and non-service connected benefits for those who have a chronic illness or disability that was not incurred during military service. An attorney can help a veteran qualify for all the benefits for which they are eligible and transfer assets if necessary.
  • Protection Against Abuse or Fraud — The elderly can often be especially vulnerable, physically and financially. In addition to helping senior citizens in cases of nursing home neglect, a lawyer can also take appropriate action in cases when assets are mismanaged or stolen by family members or other trusted representatives.
