Therefore, whether your family wants to take a proactive approach to elder law or you face a current crisis, you can put your trust in our experienced attorney, Adair Walker Brent.

A Sampling Of Important Planning Documents

If you are among those who want to start planning for the future, we can help you address your concerns by creating estate planning documents that fit your family's needs, such as:

  • General power of attorney: This document allows you to designate another person to act on your behalf in a variety of capacities, including making decisions about your financial or medical well-being.
  • Health care power of attorney: The creation of this document allows you or your family member to appoint a trusted party to make health care decisions in the event of incapacitation.
  • Physician's order on scope of treatment: The POST is similar to a do-not-resuscitate order; however, it allows you or your loved one to discuss a variety of medical scenarios and possible treatments with your physician should you need future medical care. If you would like to learn more about a POST, our attorney can educate you so you can discuss it with your doctor, and she can also explain how to store and use this document.
  • Wills and trusts: Both wills and trusts play a large part in elder law. A will outlines the distribution of your assets after death, while a trust can benefit your loved ones after your passing by preventing the need for probate.
  • Medicaid planning: Medicaid planning is an area of elder law that few understand thoroughly but that most should consider. Our attorney can explain the benefits of Medicaid planning while dispelling myths that prevent many from taking the necessary steps to plan for the future.

The above documents are merely a few of the important estate planning documents our attorney can help you create. If you or an elderly family member does not have any of these documents in place currently, or you have not reviewed your existing documents in the past five years, during a consultation with our lawyer you can learn which documents fit your needs and whether your existing documents need updating. Additionally, you can learn how planning now can help you and your loved ones in the future.
