Get Knowledgeable Guidance From A Certified Expert In Elder Law
Our firm has gained wide renown for the strength of our elder law practice. Founding attorney David Lee Rice is certified as a specialist in elder law through the National Association of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA), a distinction that reflects his extensive training and accomplishments in this field.
Clients turn to our legal team for guidance on all aspects of elder law, including:
- Conservatorships: When a loved one becomes incapacitated and no power of attorney is in place, pursuing a conservatorship is essential for securing the legal authority to care for your loved one. Conservatorship proceedings can be lengthy and complex. Our attorneys can guide you through the process, step-by-step. We also represent elders who become targets of fraudulent or specious conservatorship petitions.
- Financial elder abuse: Sadly, elders all too often become targets of fraudulent schemes, deceptive tactics, undue influence by caregivers and other forms of financial abuse. Our lawyers work to protect elders by bringing financial abuse claims to undo the harm wrought by such deceptive conduct.
- Medi-Cal planning: For many seniors, Medi-Cal is a vital lifeline to appropriate care in later stages of life. However, advance preparation is critical for establishing eligibility, protecting your assets and preserving your legacy. Our firm can help you through this intricate process. Various legal tools, such as special needs trusts, may be valuable for maximizing your benefits.
Our legal team also provides comprehensive estate planning services for clients at all stages of life.
