It's taking care of those you love. While estate planning is taking care of your family when you're no longer here to do it, that overlooks the situations other than death that could leave you unable to care for your family, either temporarily or long-term.
Elder Law is an area of life planning and estate planning that focuses on the needs associated with aging - addressing those needs, as well as planning for them. Some aspects of elder law are related to ensuring that you have resources in place to ease your transition into retirement and old age.
The law will serve you best when applied proactively.
Whether planning the living of your life, or the end of it, planning means having adequate insurance, saving for education, and retirement. It means having a will and health care arrangements, and making sure that there are plans for taking care of your children in the case of a family crisis or disaster.
The first step to keeping your life on-plan is having a plan. Take time to look at what’s important, your hopes, and your goals. Take a realistic look at where your life is now, and your options for getting from Point A – the Here and Now – to Point B – your Future. I can help you with this.
Are you planning to marry? To have children? To buy a new home? Perhaps you’re planning to start a business. Planning increases the likelihood that these dreams will become realities.
I want to know the people whose lives I touch.
One of my reasons for choosing general practice, and for focusing on individuals, families, and smaller businesses, is my desire to get to know the people whose lives I touch. I think a lawyer serves people best when he understands who they are, what’s important to them, and where their lives are headed. I want to be an important (and valuable) part of your life, even if we only meet every few years to make sure everything is up-to-date.
I believe “fit” is an important part of the personal and professional relationship between you and your lawyer. To the end of helping you decide if I’m the right lawyer for you, you can find out more about me HERE.
