Our population is aging and our senior Americans have unique legal and planning needs. Most want to protect the wealth they have spent a lifetime building, so that they can enjoy a worry free retirement, or so they can pass a legacy on to their children/grandchildren, or so they can help their favorite school or charity. In addition to asset protection we here at the Common Sense Elder Law Firm has extensive experience creating living trusts, irrevocable trusts, powers of attorney wills, and in the probate of estates. We help wartime veterans and/or their widows obtain a monthly pension benefit to help pay for long term care costs.
