Elder Law Services

At Haas & Zaltz, LLP our main focus is to protect and advocate for the needs of seniors and their loved ones.  Each of our clients is treated as an individual, with their own needs and life goals.  We do not believe in a “one-size-fits-all” approach, and we will tailor our services to meet your needs.

While each person that comes to us has his own concerns, some of the common questions that we address are things such as: 

  • When I apply for Medicaid, will my assets affect whether I am approved or the amount of benefits that I will receive? If so, should I put my assets in someone else’s name rather than leaving them in my will as inheritance?
  • What happens if my spouse or loved one needs to go into a nursing home or assisted living facility?  Will I have the means to pay for it?  Will Medicaid cover it?  What happens to my SSI if I need to go into a nursing home?
  • How can I plan for the event that I am unable to make medical decisions on my behalf? How do I make sure that my wishes are carried out when it comes to an end of life situation?
  • What do I need to know with regards to setting up my estate to minimize the tax burden on my beneficiaries? What are good tax planning strategies for seniors?

When it comes to comes to providing legal services for the elderly, each of our attorneys has knowledge of the unique needs of the aging population.  Because of this, we are able to better serve and thoroughly address the estate and care planning needs of the clients we serve.  When you come to our offices, we will treat you with dignity, respect and patience throughout the entire process.

The main areas of Elder Law that we cover at Haas & Zaltz, LLP include, but are not limited to:

Depending upon your situation, you may need to do some Special Needs Planning if you have loved ones who will need to be taken care of if you are not able to do so.
