Elder Law

Getting older brings both with it both opportunities and challenges. You may have the opportunity to share your wealth in ways that leave a lasting legacy. But you may also be dealing with financial issues or health problems that challenge you to your very core.

At Rothstein, Mandell, Strohm, Halm & Kurs , we understand how difficult the choices you face can be. Our attorneys can guide you through the process of making key decisions and putting documents in place that reflect your key values and goals.

Give us a call to arrange a confidential consultation. Based in Lakewood, we serve clients in Brick, Toms River and other communities throughout Ocean and Monmouth counties.

What Will Your Legacy Be — And What Is Needed To Pass It Along?

The elder law service you need naturally depends a lot on your particular situation. Our lawyers have the knowledge and experience to respond to a full range of issues, including:

  • Estate planning — A basic estate plan should include a will, a health care directive (living will) and the designation of a health care proxy (someone to make medical decisions for you if you become unable to do so). Estate plans can also involve trusts and other instruments. We can help implement a plan that expresses your specific goals.
  • Long-term care/Medicaid planning — Since you may be unable to care for yourself as you get older, it is important to address how you would pay for necessary care. Our firm can counsel you on options such as long-term care insurance or the process of establishing eligibility for Medicaid.
  • Financial management — Cognitive decline or other factors could affect your ability to manage your money. We can explain how tool such as a durable power of attorney for financial affairs could be useful in your situation and what is involved in a guardianship or conservatorship.

Our firm has served New Jersey clients since 1946. We understand how important it is to leave a legacy that will matter for generations to come and can offer skilled counsel as you seek to do so.
