Elder Law 

About Elder Law

Elder Law is a specialty of law that caters to the unique needs of older clients and those with long-term illnesses.  Elder law encompasses specialized estate planning documents (wills, trusts, power of attorney, etc.), determining the right care strategy and planning for ways to pay for that needed long-term care.  Anticipating eligibility for VA or TennCare benefits,  in addition to any other services or resources available in our community, are just a few of the opportunities we exam as part of the expertise we offer our clients.  Advance planning for eligibility to many of these services is important if you wish to stretch your personal resources and protect your assets.
