Elder law covers all aspects of planning, counseling, education, and advocating for clients. Elder law attorneys are a resource to their clients because they understand their clients’ needs. The attorneys at Shoffner & Associates are connected to the local networks of professionals who serve the elder population and they stay informed about changes in the law that are important to their clients.
The attorneys at Shoffner & Associates who work in the field of elder law bring more to their practice than an expertise in the appropriate area of law. They also have knowledge of the senior population and their unique needs as well as the myths related to competence and aging. They are aware of the physical and mental difficulties that often accompany the aging process. Because of their broad knowledge base they are able to more thoroughly address the legal needs of their clients.
When planning an estate, Shoffner & Associates’ attorneys consider the health of the clients, the potential need for nursing home or other long term care, and the clients’ wishes and concerns. Our lawyers are committed to helping clients maintain financial independence if the time comes for long-term care. They plan for asset protection and the most effective use of public and private resources.
