For some people, it’s pretty easy to move through life without the need for an attorney. They might have stayed married for decades, not needing any representation in a divorce. Likewise, if a person works a stable job without any legal ramifications, they may never need representation in the professional world. However, that is all likely to change in their retirement years, which is why working with an Elder Law attorney is so important.

It Starts with Estate Planning

If nothing else, it’s good to work with an Elder Law Attorney in order to plan how your estate will be distributed upon your passing. This is a topic that many people would rather avoid if they can, but it’s best to deal with it as soon as possible so everything is in order. And, it’s important to remember that this is not a topic only important to the rich – everyone should have an estate plan in place, and that plan should be kept up-to-date when things change. Those who have been putting off the task of making a will and outlining who will receive what should act right away to be prepared.

Many Other Important Services

Estate planning is a big part of what we as a Tampa Elder Law firm can provide, but that is just the tip of the iceberg. There are plenty of other important aspects of estate planning to mention, including power of attorney, life care planning, Medicaid and VA benefits, when applicable. Some of these other areas of Elder Law are particularly important for individuals who are no longer able to make all of their own decisions. If a loved one is going to be in charge of making important choices, assigning power of attorney to that person is something that needs to be done sooner rather than later. By being proactive and staying ahead of one’s elder law needs, and working with an experienced law firm such as ours, can alleviate so much of the stress and make things flow much easier.
