Our law practice is dedicated to estate planning (wills and trusts), elder law, MaineCare, Medicaid applications and life care planning. Our proactive life care planning case management practice integrates the skills and knowledge of our elder attorneys and a social worker dedicated to assisting clients with issues related to aging or to physical or cognitive challenges. We frequently assist clients with asset protection planning as part of our life care planning process.
Elder law encompasses a variety of planning objectives and goals many of which deal with our most basic concerns as individuals-our autonomy.
Medicaid (which in Maine is known as MaineCare) is a federal and state funded program that pays medical and long-term care expenses for those that qualify. Do you or your spouse qualify? You or your spouse might. Call and schedule an appointment with our elder law attorneys to find out.
Wills, revocable trusts (sometimes called "living trusts"), irrevocable trusts, powers of attorney and health care directives are just the starting point for effective estate planning. Asset coordination is important too. Many estates must be probated or require trust administration. Don't forget taxes, both income and estate (death) taxes. Don't worry, we have you covered.
Life Care Planning offers a holistic approach to planning for a client’s legal, financial and care coordination needs. We are the only elder law firm in Maine that we are aware of that has a full time social worker on staff to assist with home care, assisted living and nursing placement, medical billing/insurance issues and so much more.
