What an Elder Law Attorney Does

Elder law attorneys help you plan for the future, and they also help you plan for the end of your life. If you have real estate, for example, you will want to have everything in order, if you plan on donating your assets to charity upon your death or if you plan on dispersing it between your children or grandchildren. If you do not have your estate already in order when you pass, the legalities can become quite complicated and make the lives of your children and grandchildren miserable.  Our firm’s practice focuses on the following aspects of Elder Law

Estate Planning

  • Last Will and Testament
  • Trusts
  • Durable Power of Attorney
  • Health Care Proxy
  • Living Will
  • Disposition of Remains document

Medicaid Planning

Medicaid is a government program that pays for in-home health aides and for long term stays in a nursing home long after your normal Medicare benefit runs out.  If  you do not plan properly, you could spend down your nest egg on your medical bills instead of protecting them for you and your family. Nursing home costs range from $10,000 to over $20,000 per month! The Falcone Law Firm helps you or your loved one preserve those assets for the people they were meant for!

Medicaid Asset Protection Trusts

Special Trusts that prevent Medicaid from placing a lien on your assets or your home.

Medicaid Applications

Our firm will advise you from start to finish and prepare the entire Medicaid application for you.  Our years of experience will give you the peace of mind you need in a stressful time for you and your family.

Medicaid Fair-Hearings

An administrative hearing held at the Department of Social Services or Human Resources Administration to contest a Medicaid decision.  When you do not agree with a Medicaid determination (denial of benefits or the number of home care hours given), you can rely on the Falcone Law Firm to represent you aggressively and professionally at a Fair Hearing.
