At Marks Elder Law we remain committed to serving you and meeting your legal needs promptly – more than ever in these demanding times. Our office is again open for any work that can’t be effectively done remotely, including meeting with clients (though we still use videoconferencing, phone and email as well)

Having up-to-date estate planning arrangements in the form of Powers of Attorney and Wills, at least, is crucial to peace of mind as well as actual preparedness. You may benefit from taking your planning a step further with a Revocable Trust, and some families absolutely need Special Needs Trust type planning  for any family member with a disability.

If you are headed toward expensive long-term care such as in a nursing home, you must seek expert advice to protect yourself, your assets and your family.  With the right advice, long-term care patients and their families get a much, much better bottom line result. We can help you protect your assets.

Finally,  if a loved one has died, we also provide expert assistance to help you wind up their affairs  and administer their estate. These are some ways in which we  at MARKS ELDER LAW  may be able to help you.  Please keep reading, and call or email today.
