I have family members who have suffered from both cognitive and physical difficulties related to aging. Having gone through these experiences, I appreciate the difficulty families face in discussing these issues with their loved ones.
I am significantly aware of the need to understand and explain the intracacies of Elder law, estate planning solutions, and obtaining Medicaid and/or Veterans Benefits to provide additional income to Seniors and their families.
I am particularly knowledgeable and successful in obtaining these benefits, and knowing how these multiple benefits interact. This specific and unique knowledge allows my clients to obtain all possible benefits with little difficulty.
I counsel my clients daily on these issues related to Estate Planning, Elder Law, and Veterans' Benefit planning to ensure that they are well versed in all planning strategies: agressive or conservative, we cover the entire spectrum of planning opportunities. Again, I strive to ensure that all possible planning opportunities are utilized; no opportunities are missed or overlooked.
Check out my firm's website for more information regardings Seniors, Veterans, Disabled Individuals, and Estate Planning issues.
