Hire the Most Qualified Elder Law Attorney in the Commonwealth Who Understands Your Family's Needs

Elder law in Kentucky is a highly technical area of the law addressing the unique needs of elderly and special needs residents.

Elder law is a relatively new field of law that deals with the issues faced by the fastest-growing segment of the U.S. population, the elderly. Because this area of the law is so unique, it is essential to have a highly qualified elder law attorney who can best represent you.

Our Specialized Practice Makes Us Kentucky's First Choice When You Need an Elder Law Attorney

At Elder Law Lawyers, we concentrate on elder law, special needs counseling, and estate planning while placing a considerable emphasis on personal service. Our process begins with listening carefully to each client to determine their planning goals, concerns, and unique circumstances. Our attorneys who work with the elderly and those with special needs bring more to our practice with elder law expertise.

Elder law involves planning for complex health care, long-term care, and other issues facing elderly and disabled individuals and their families. Studies show that the elderly stand a 40 percent chance of needing unexpected long-term care before they die. As people grow older, planning for the future becomes increasingly important. As people navigate the complex waters of estate and retirement planning, Social Security, Medicare, health care directives, and long-term care, they'll need sound legal advice and representation from an attorney they can trust to put their best interests first. Our goal at Elder Law Lawyers is to help seniors and those with special needs protect their assets against the high cost of nursing home care, allowing them to remain independent for as long as possible and to enjoy the peace of mind that comes from knowing there is a plan in place for the future.

Our Expansive Network Helps Your Family Gain Access to Resources That Help Make Your Lives Easier

Elder Law Lawyers collaborates with social workers, psychologists, geriatric care managers, and other elder care professionals who may also be of assistance to our clients. We have an understanding of the elderly that allows our staff to ignore the myths related to aging. At the same time, we recognize and empathize with some of the true physical and mental difficulties that often accompany the aging process. Eldercare planning is a comprehensive approach that focuses on the functional quality of life for later years and the residual quality of life for family and loved ones during and after their lifetime.

We help our clients empower trusted people to handle their health care and financial decisions if the client becomes incapacitated.
