Elder Law Firm Serving
Getting older brings many changes, and one of those changes is the way we think about end-of-life planning. When we are young, we often don’t like to think about what will happen to our loved ones after we pass away, but as we age, it becomes crucial to consider the future. Speaking to an elder law lawyer is a big part of that process. An elder law attorney can advise you on a range of topics, from estate planning and probate to Medicaid asset protection and guardianships. If you haven’t spoken to an estate planning attorney, know that it is never too early to start thinking about the future. The sooner you start planning, the better it will be for you and the people you care about.
The elder law attorneys at Yorkway Law Group can help you sort out these and other topics, and we are located right here in your area. Get in touch with us if you live in New Jersey and need advice about anything related to estate planning, powers of attorney, trusts, and more.
Elder Law Attorneys with 30+ Years of Experience
At Yorkway Law Group, our attorneys have decades of experience in the legal field, and much of that time was spent focusing specifically on the issues that affect older Americans. We are one of the most experienced elder law firms in the New Jersey area, and we can put that experience to work for you. Some firms handle a range of legal specialties, and while they may be able to advise you, they will not have the same level of expertise as attorneys who dedicate their entire practice to end-of-life planning, Medicaid planning, and other considerations of interest to older people.
Our elder law attorneys can assist you with any of the following legal considerations and more in the New Jersey area:
Your will is a document that expresses your wishes after you pass away. In addition to providing for the disposition of your assets, a will can also direct the courts on who will care for your children.
The executor of your estate will be responsible for collecting your assets and distributing them to the people listed in your will. You can designate this person with the help of an estate planning attorney.
Trusts have many purposes, and they can be extremely helpful for your beneficiaries. Not only can trust help your heirs save money on taxes, but it can also protect certain types of assets and fulfill a range of other needs.
If you become incapable of making your own decisions, whether, through physical or mental incapacitation, the person who holds your power of attorney can make those decisions on your behalf. This will save your loved ones from having to make difficult decisions and can also prevent the courts from appointing a guardian to manage your affairs.
