Fuller, Chlouber & Frizzell, LLP is ready and able to represent you in all of your elder law needs. But many people (including many attorneys) are not sure what the term “elder law” means or what types of legal services are included in the practice of elder law. Elder law is a broad term, so I have listed, below, some of the problems/issues for which an elder law attorney should be able to provide assistance.

Elder Law and Special Needs Planning is the integration of the legal system with social and medical concerns for the benefit of the client and their family and encompasses all aspects of planning, counseling, educating and advocating for clients. An elder law and special needs planning attorney assists clients and their families to ensure clients have the best possible care. The elder law and special needs planning practice is unique as it requires a holistic approach and often involves a person whose health and mental state requires special care, attention, and protection. Elder law and special needs planning encompasses many different fields of law. Some of these include:

  • Asset protection
  • Medicare claims and appeals
  • Supplemental and long-term health insurance issues
  • Tax planning
  • Disability planning including Special Needs Trusts for disabled children
  • Access to health care in a managed care environment
  • Conservatorships and guardianships
  • Estate planning, including the use of trusts, wills, and other planning documents
  • Probate and administration of estates
  • Administration and management of trusts
  • Nursing home issues, including questions of patients’ rights and nursing home quality
  • Elder abuse and fraud recovery cases
  • Housing issues, including discrimination and home equity conversions
  • Retirement, including public and private retirement benefits, survivor benefits, and pension benefits
