Elder Law

Elder Law is the only area of law defined by the clients we serve rather than the areas of law in which we practice. Gasper Legal deals with our clients by talking about long-term planning for health care and financial viability, family dynamics, end-of-life decisions, personal values and personal preferences.

We offer an integrated, elder-centered solution developed by an Attorney.  Instead of focusing purely on the immediate needs that Elder Law addresses, we also focus on long-term needs for families struggling with the demands of an elderly loved one's care. Our approach is client-centered: our goal is to use the elder's money to maximize the elder's quality of life and independence.

Legal Services for the Elder and Their Families

Many of our clients face expensive medical needs, such as care in a nursing home, assisted living facility or at home.  We help them and their families conserve their assets to the extent possible, while seeking the best care in the most suitable environment. We seek to provide peace of mind for our clients.

Services we provide routinely include:

  • Legal and financial planning for long term care
  • Medicaid planning, applications and appeals
  • Estate planning for individuals and couples
  • Special Needs Trusts for family members with disabilities
  • Power of Attorney Agent and Guardianship advisory
  • Probate and estate administration
  • Alternatives to Probate
  • Guardianship
  • Referrals to related geriatric services
