Frequently Asked Questions About Elder Law

Our clients often want to know more about some of the basics involving elder law. We offer free consultations to discuss your specific situation, but we also wanted to provide some information about elder law to help you understand more about the benefits that early elder law planning can have for your family.

What is elder law?

A primary part of elder law in Nevada concerns itself with costs associated with long-term care. In short, elder law allows you and your family to develop a plan to deal with those costs. Additionally, elder law also deals with guardianships of loved ones who are no longer able to take care of themselves, or have become incapacitated in some manner. Elder law allows families to feel confident that they have clear guidance should one of these issues arise.

When do you need to consider speaking with an elder law attorney?

The short answer to this is as soon as possible. The reason is that certain avenues to protect assets may be unavailable once care needs become immediate. This can place a severe and significant financial strain upon families. Our goal is to help put you in a place where you have a sound plan that can be put into action the moment it is needed.

How do I protect my loved one’s assets if they need long-term care?

Proper estate planning includes developing a course of action if your loved one needs to go into an assisted living facility or needs other long-term care. We can discuss what is possible in your specific situation, as each person’s needs will be different. The sooner we can get started on this plan, the more options that may be available to you and your family.

How much does an elder law attorney cost?

Like with estate planning, the attorney’s fees depend upon the complexity of the situation. We will gladly listen to your situation and discuss the costs associated with resolving any outstanding issues. We know that this can be a difficult time in your life, and we want you to have as much information as possible when deciding which Las Vegas elder law attorney is right for you.
