The population of Maine and the United States is aging. Laws and regulations affecting the elderly and their families are getting more complicated. We provide assistance to help those of our clients who are senior citizens or who are their adult relatives.

Some of these services include the following:

  • Preparing health care and financial powers of attorney
  • Drafting wills and trusts
  • Advising about tax and other implications of gifting assets to family members
  • Protecting assets when a spouse is about to enter long term care
  • Assisting clients through the application process to qualify for MaineCare (Medicaid)
  • Petitions for appointment as guardian or conservator, and
  • Making special accommodations for our elder clients, including arranging to make house calls for those who may be unable to come to our office
