California lawyer dedicated to seniors’ healthcare
Access to good medical care is essential to your health and quality of life. I assist you in maneuvering through the red tape of Medicare, Medicaid and private insurance companies so you receive the medical treatments, diagnostic tests and medications available to you. I can help you plan your future medical care and make crucial legal end-of-life decisions. I can draft legally valid medical documents that ensure your intentions are honored if you become unable to make those decisions for yourself.
Skilled lawyer assisting seniors with estate planning
I am an experienced attorney who can advise you on the most successful ways to achieve your estate planning goals. Through meticulous analysis, I guide you on how best to transfer your assets, minimize estate taxes, establish guardianship for minor children, support personal philanthropic causes and even protect a beloved pet. I can draft a will that reflects your desires and establish living trusts and other legal entities beneficial to your estate.
Maintain financial independence with guidance from a knowledgeable lawyer
Retirement gives you the opportunity to enjoy family and hobbies, but if not well-planned, living on a fixed income can create financial stress. I can help you organize your affairs and plan for your retirement. If you choose to continue working, I am prepared to protect your rights in the workplace.
