The Process of Working with Our New York Elder Law Attorneys
People often feel reluctant about contacting an Elder Law Attorney. They may feel they have waited too long and there is nothing that can be done about organizing their own or their loved ones’ affairs. In New York, it is never too late to consult the advice of a skilled attorney, especially when you have a sick and elderly loved one who could benefit from Medicaid or long-term care planning.
What is Elder Law?
An Elder Law attorney can assist family members of any age with the complicated legal processes surrounding matters that individuals encounter when faced with a disability. For example, elder care lawyers assist with estate and disability planning, long-term care planning, Medicaid planning and applications, maximizing retirement accounts and benefits, creating wills and trusts, handling probate and estate administration matters, and applying for guardianships.
What to Expect When Hiring Our New York Attorneys
At Makofsky Valente Law Group, P.C., we spend a lot of time getting to know each of our clients, their families, and the client’s general health history. We carefully review the client’s finances to get a full understanding of what needs to be protected. We engage in a full discussion of the client’s concerns and issues with the client and their family members. We are happy to incorporate distanced family members remotely via a conference call or Zoom video conference to make sure all vital parties are involved in the discussion.
Once our team has the necessary information, we will present the client with options for moving forward. When the plan has been agreed upon, we assist the client in putting the plan into action. Our clients leave our firm knowing that they’ve accomplished what they’ve set out to do and feel prepared for the future.
