Serving Our Neighbors in Huntington Beach
An important part of being Huntington Beach elder law attorneys is recognizing the myths from the facts when it comes to seniors and the real issues they face. There are so many myths circulating out there regarding the elderly and their competency in general. It takes understanding and expertise to be able to recognize the real physical and mental challenges that seniors often face, as opposed to the fallacies that society may perpetuate. It is also important to recognize the importance of maintaining as much freedom and autonomy for seniors as possible.
The key to providing the best customized legal advice is to work closely with clients and families so that their specific needs and goals can be addressed. As Los Angeles elder law attorneys, we need to become familiar with our client’s health care needs and the family dynamic. This exceptional insight makes Los Angeles elder law attorneys better equipped to handle their client’s legal needs.
Legal issues Huntington Beach elder law attorneys handle
As with every legal specialty, there are a few common legal issues that are commonly handled by elder law attorneys. The most common legal matters include Medicaid planning, estate planning and administration, conservatorships, and trust formation and administration.
Some clients believe they can handle certain legal matters on their own, such as drafting a will or power of attorney. If you are considering substituting the advice of a professional with an online do-it-yourself product, you need to first understand the risks. Your Los Angeles elder law attorneys can tell you that the false sense of security do-it-yourself products provide can be dangerous.
If you have questions regarding estate planning, trust contests, or any other trust administration issues, please contact the Schomer Law Group either online or by calling us in Los Angeles at (310) 337-7696, and in Orange County at (562) 346-3209.
