Robert & Rita B.
Long Term Care Planning Clients
“We both feel that you did an excellent job in explaining to us the various options which are available as we seek to find the best plan for us.”
Daughter of Long Term Care Client
“I think you have some idea of how much support you provided, for me especially, over these past several years. You were far more than our “elder care lawyer.” Your helpfulness and understanding gave me a lot of courage and helped me/us do what needed to be done. Thank you so much.”
Daughter of Medicaid Client
“I hired Deborah to facilitate the Medicaid application process for my Dad. She was extremely knowledgeable regarding Medicaid regulations, documentation needed, and the process. Deborah dealt directly with all questions and requests from the Mass Health office and kept me informed of any issues or progress. Knowing that I had Deborah’s expertise during what was a stressful time, was a great relief.”
CPA, Professional Colleague
“I recently worked with Deborah to assist a family member with estate and long term care planning. Deborah’s practice is focused on these areas which are highly complex and ever-changing. She does a great job breaking down the complexities and explaining the options available. I confidently recommend Deb for her expertise in these areas.”
WHAT IS ELDER LAW?
The practice of elder law focuses on a specific kind of client -- an elder or an individual with special needs. Working with the client, and also often with his or her family, we focus on all of the client’s needs as he or she faces the challenges of aging and/or disability. We help to solve our client’s legal, financial, and health care problems and to maximize his or her quality of life. We help our clients protect their hard-earned assets and homes from the potentially devastating costs of long term care.
