I began practicing Elder Law over 25 years ago, and in that time, my team and I have had the chance to help people in all walks of life. Our focus has been on creating solutions, planning for the future, and helping our clients weather the storm of a crisis with their financial well-being intact.

Because we have been involved in the drafting of legislation and administrative rules relating to Medicaid for long-term care in the state of Illinois, we have a thorough understanding of the current state of affairs and a keen eye for where the future may take us.

What’s more, we have developed certain care and support system relationshipsto help you and your family deal with the actual care needed by you or a loved one, as well as the emotional and physical aspects of growing older, in addition to the devastating cost of care issues.

Ferraro an A+ Lawyer
Estate planning including durable powers of attorney. Mr. Ferraro and his staff were exceptional with my aging parents. They clearly explained all matters of interest in a clear way without over complicating the matter for my parents or me. There was no pressure to sell complicated plans that are not necessary at this time, but were clear that should the need arise they are available at any time. This was a great experience with a well informed attorney and his outstanding staff.

I was referred to Mr. Ferraro to help with a Medicaid application and Pool Trust Set up for my aunt. He and his staff were thorough, professional and understanding of my timelimits. Everything went as smooth as silk. I then went to him to update my trust, will and help me decide how my estate could be handled upon an incapacitating illness and death. The advice he gave me took a weight off my shoulders and eased my anxiety since I have no close family and did not want to rely on friends.
