Chicago Elder Law Attorney
Elder law encompasses a wide range of practice areas, including estate planning, Medicaid planning, asset protection, and more. In general, however, elder law is concerned with ensuring that you are adequately prepared to deal with the medical, financial and legal challenges faced with growing older.
At Garofalo Law Group, we provide experienced representation for elder law matters in Chicago and Bloomington, Illinois. Given that this is a complex area of the law, we take the time and make the effort to properly address all of our clients’ concerns. We will counsel our clients on their best options and what they can do to preserve their interests while ensuring that they comply with state and federal laws.
While we often represent people who wish to plan their own financial and medical futures, we also represent the children of parents who are no longer able to make important decisions on their own. In addition, we represent personal representatives of estates and agents under powers of attorney.
Our lawyers help clients with a wide range of elder law matters, including:
- Planning for long-term care
- Determining Medicaid eligibility and planning asset spend-downs
- Creating a living will or advance health care directive
