Elder Care Law

Experienced DC Estate Planning Attorneys, Assisting in Elder Care Law

Elder Care Law

At Antonoplos & Associates, we have over a decade of experience in providing legal counsel to aging or disabled family members. Often elder care law includes sensitive and difficult legal issues that many families find difficult to confront.

The cost of long­term care has become a major consideration for families and individuals in their planning decisions. An experienced elder law attorney can help you with proper life planning to give you and your family the peace of mind that health care needs will be met and asset protection is ensured. A well­-designed long term care plan can ensure that your lifetime’s hard work and savings are well preserved for your retirement years and will be distributed according to your wishes.

Protecting The Rights Of The Elderly

At Antonoplos & Associates, our team of knowledgeable and compassionate attorneys can help clients navigate their options and implement comprehensive and cost-­effective long term strategies. Our practice focuses on legal issues and advocacy for persons who are facing aging, illness, or incapacitation. We routinely respond to elder care questions and concerns about living wills, Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, asset protection, care management, disability planning, and guardianships for loved ones. We are particularly sensitive to the concerns we all share about the medical problems of aging, both for ourselves and our loved ones.
