Elder Law

Whether you are a senior citizen yourself or an adult dealing with aging parents, you and your family can feel overwhelmed when making decisions that will significantly impact you financially, emotionally, and physically.  As a family ages there are many changes that occur, some of these changes are a product of careful planning, others come from a sudden turn of events. The objective of elder Law is to give families peace of mind during both the planned and unplanned events.  We work with families to provide options to help make these transitions smooth.

Elder law includes estate planning and estate administration, but it goes well beyond that to include:   

  • Federal estate and gift tax planning 
  • Medicare, Medicaid planning, retirement benefits, and entitlement programs 
  • Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
  • Guardianships 
  • Disability planning, long-term care financing, and medical decision-making 
  • Retirement and financial planning
  • Age discrimination 
  • Housing options 
  • Elder abuse and neglect 

At the Baer Law Group, we recognize that so much depends on your needs and your goals.  Our objective is to ensure that all your needs are met and we understand the goals you want to achieve, whether it is maintaining your standard of living, ensuring money accumulated is passed to family as you wish, or residing in your home as long as possible. 

We help you find solutions for the many problems that life presents – illness, disabilities, and injuries – not simply end of life.
