Elder Law & Estate Planning Attorneys Providing
Legal Power for Seniors

Our attorneys will work with you to simplify the complex process of planning your estate, whether you need a will or a trust to ensure that your wishes are followed after your death, and your family’s financial future is protected. We pay particular attention to structuring your estate in a way that minimizes your tax burden and helps to simply and minimize family disagreements after your death.

Elder law is a term that encompasses estate planning and other issues that affect seniors. At Hook Law Center, we can assist you in preparing a Life Care Plan to coordinate and pay for any long-term care needs you may have.

In addition, we can assist you with matters such as powers of attorney, planning for incapacity, guardianships, and advance directives for health care.

In Home / Nursing Home / Elder Care

A primary financial concern for people growing older is the potential need for long-term care either in the Home or in a Nursing Home. This need can be difficult to address in a retirement plan, because it is a large expense that may or may not become necessary. Nevertheless, long-term care can and should be planned for, and our attorneys are here to help.

Our goal is to provide you with solutions based on your family’s individual needs. Long-term care insurance may be the best answer for some families who plan in advance. Others may plan to rely on Medicaid to pay for any nursing home care that may be needed, in which case it is essential to meet with our Medicaid planning attorneys, who can help you preserve your family’s assets while ensuring eligibility for public benefits. Then there are those family who fail to plan in advance, while prior planning provides the best results, we can help these families in crisis. If you or a family member is privately paying for In Home care or Nursing Home care, contact our Attorneys right away to protect a portion of your assets.

Special Needs Planning and Trusts Attorneys

We consider it a privilege to provide legal services to families of children with special needs and to people with disabilities. One of the most important legal issues that arises is how families can provide resources for their loved one while maintaining eligibility for public benefits such as Supplemental Security Income and Medicaid. Our attorneys will meet with you to learn your goals and help you implement solutions. One of the most common tools we use to help people with disabilities is a supplemental needs trust, also known as a special needs trust. When properly structured, this type of trust permits resources to be set aside for the benefit of the person with a disability, without jeopardizing their entitlement to public benefits.

Probate, Estate Administration, and Trust Administration

Hook Law Center is experienced in all areas of probate, estate administration, trust administration, and guardianship/conservatorship administration. If you have been named Administrator, Executor, Conservator, or Trustee, you should seek the advice of an attorney experienced in this area of law, in order to avoid many common mistakes in administration as well as avoid any unnecessary liability for your actions.
