Lynn St. Louis is an elder law attorney, providing legal counsel on elder law, estate planning, and long-term care matters. Lynn's practice offers life care planning services to assist clients and their loved ones through the myriad of legal and social issues in order to find, keep, and pay for quality long-term care. Through implementation of Medicaid Asset Preservation Strategies, families can preserve substantial assets and obtain Medicaid long-term care benefits.
