Many attorneys can help you plan your estate, but an elder law attorney like Mary Kay and her team at AZ Health and Elder Law are experts in not just estate planning, but Life Care Planning, which encompasses so much more. In addition to the traditional asset-focused elder law services you would expect, our team specializes in providing a wide range of services to support you through legal challenges, asset management, medical care, and family support.
A Life Care Plan defines, organizes, prioritizes, and mobilizes every aspect of an elder's care. In addition to traditional asset-focused elder law services that help elders qualify for public benefits while preserving family wealth to the greatest extent possible, a Life Care Plan typically includes provisions legal services, care coordination, health care advocacy, and Medicare and insurance support.
A will lets you outline your wishes about who gets your assets, from cares to family heirlooms, and who cares for your minor kids if you’re no longer around. But a will won’t let you leave instructions about certain joint assets (like your home that you own with your spouse), assets that have a beneficiary (like life insurance policies) or assets held in a trust. We coordinate these decisions as part of your larger estate plan, which include a will but may also place assets into trusts to make sure that your estate is divided up the right way—your way.
