Elder Law

The main goal of our practice at Halwick Law is to help individuals plan to protect their livelihood, their assets, and their legacy for their families, loved ones, and most importantly – their peace of mind. We do this specifically with an eye toward future long term care needs.
 

We help clients structure their estates for their current needs right now and the “what if” of long term care in the future.

We also work with clients and their loved ones to help obtain long term care, when it’s needed, at home or in a nursing home and help plan and apply for Medicaid to fund those care needs.

We assist our clients with the preparation of:

  • Irrevocable Trusts 
    (Medicaid Asset Protection Trusts)

  • Medicaid Gifting Plans

  • Promissory Notes

  • Spend Down Plans

  • Caregiver Contracts

  • Deed Transfers

  • Chronic Care Medicaid Applications

  • Nursing Home Applications

  • Community Medicaid Applications

  • Pooled Trusts
     

Pre-planning can be an effective tool to protect your assets, like your home, but crisis planning –while you or a loved one is already in a nursing home – can still save some, if not all, of your assets.

 

We are here to help assess your Medicaid eligibility and help structure a plan to protect and save what you’ve worked hard for – whether it’s 5 years before you might need nursing home care or 5 days after you’ve been admitted.


Plan for Right Now. Plan for What If…?
