LAWSolutions (Legal, Asset & Wealth Solutions), and its owner Barbara Bangs - JD, LLM-Tax, provide legal advice concerning asset preservation with respect to California Medi-Cal eligibility planning, Medi-Cal estate recovery issues, and the Veterans Aid & Attendance pension benefit.
Holding a masters degree in taxation, as well as having insurance and securities experience, Barbara is able to look at her client’s over all financial picture and present ALL of the options available. As a client of LAWSolutions, you and will work with our office on a plan of action specifically designed based upon your financial situation, which will provide you with the necessary guidance needed to successfully help you to preserve your assets - 'and' help you to qualify for all of the benefits available to you for your long term health care situation, whether in-home care, assisted living or skilled nursing.
If you are a Veteran, or surviving spouse of a Veteran, I can help you to learn about and understand the additional tax free pension available from the Department of Veterans Affairs. There is a little known benefit commonly referred to as the Veterans Aid and Attendance, which is a tax free pension paid for the purpose of helping you to continue living at home, and I would be honored to assist you in obtaining these benefits.
I treat my clients with compassion and respect. I will provide the same recommendations and advise to you as I would give to my own parents and family members.
