MEMPHIS ELDER CARE & MEDICAID PLANNING LAWYERS

Two Men Fishing

Capable Medicaid and Elder Law Advocacy in the Memphis, TN Area.

Elder law refers to legal matters and planning strategies relating to the elderly planning for incapacity and long-term care, assuring eligibility for available government benefits and disposition of your estate when you pass away.  The Estate & Family Law Group provides comprehensive planning services to coordinate all of these matters to your maximum advantage. We represent retirement age clients or their legal guardians and caregivers.

Estate Planning With A Focus On Medicaid Eligibility:

The further in advance you plan, the more latitude you will have in protecting assets and keeping them in the family. But it is never too late. Our attorneys are knowledgeable in all aspects of elder law such as:

  • Estate planning concerns: You can’t assume that your family will know your wishes (or always act in your best interests). We can establish wills, trusts, financial and medical powers of attorney, and living wills if you have not done so, or update your existing documents.

  • Medicaid planning strategies: We can shelter most assets without disqualifying a person for Medicaid, even when an elderly person has already entered nursing home care or is about to. 

  • Veterans' aid and attendance planning: With proper planning, a military veteran or surviving spouse may qualify for VA benefits even if income or assets exceed the criteria.

  • Special-needs trust creation: If an elderly person cannot manage his or her own affairs because of mental incapacity, we can establish a third-party trust to maintain Medicaid and SSI eligibility without depleting their assets.
