Protecting The Elderly And Disabled

Talking with an elder law attorney is one of the best ways to protect a person you care about. Your attorney can suggest strategies for effectively managing assets, qualifying for important medical benefits and avoiding paying unnecessary expenses to nursing homes and other care facilities. However, it is important to think ahead. There are many more solutions available to you if you act years ahead of time than if you wait until an illness or disability occurs.

At the Springfield, Missouri, law office of McKay & White, LLC Attorneys at Law, we can work with you to take proactive steps to protect someone you care about.

We can help with:

  • Nursing home planning
  • Asset protection when possible
  • Supplemental special-needs trusts for disabled children and adults
  • Durable Powers of Attorney for finances and healthcare needs
  • Guardianship and conservatorship proceedings

State and federal laws regarding these matters are complex, and lawyers who do not exclusively handle elder law and estate planning matters may miss strategic opportunities to preserve assets. At McKay & White, LLC Attorneys at Law, elder law and estate planning are all we do. Our lawyers have the experience and in-depth legal knowledge to achieve the best possible results for you. That's one of the reasons many of our cases come to us on referral from other professionals who know our reputation for effective elder law representation.
