Our Medicaid Planning attorneys prepare you for long-term care by preventing the need for a spend down or loss of a family home to pay Medicaid back after death. We help you divert your assets to become Medicaid eligible and keep your assets safe to pass on to your family.
Why Plan for Your Senior Years?
Without planning for your senior years, the unexpected can happen and leave you and your loved ones struggling to find answers. Your family may not know what kinds of medical care you would desire in an emergency situation or what to do if you need life support.
- Who will take care of your financial decisions if you’re no longer able to?
- What will happen if you need around the clock nursing care? How will you pay for it? Will you qualify for Medicaid coverage to pay a nursing home? If you don’t qualify, will you have to spend down your resources to qualify?
- If you use Medicaid to pay for the nursing home, will the state Medicaid recovery department try to sell your family home to cover their expenses for you?
- Who will make decisions about your caregivers?
- Do you want a court to decide what happens if you need a caregiver?
- Would you rather make the decisions now for future caregiver needs you may have?
- How will you prevent financial exploitation if you lose capacity?
- Will your family members struggle about what to do, or will they see that you have prepared a plan and there is no need for worry?

Adam and his team were incredibly helpful and compassionate when I had to navigate the NC adult legal guardianship process from Maine in order to assist a loved one.
I am a lawyer myself and it was a welcomed relief to be able to focus on being the best support system I could be for my loved one because I could trust Adam to ably cover the legal aspects of what needed to be done.
Adam is knowledgeable and a great advocate. I would use Adam again and strongly recommend him for assistance in your guardianship/estate legal needs.
