Why is Elder Law Important?

People are living longer than ever they ever have. The web of legal issues the elderly population faces is increasing. Rising costs of health care and the increase of debilitating diseases (including dementia and Alzheimers) means that proper planning is essential to handle your financial and health concerns for the long term.

At Davidge & Wright, L.P., we have years of experience working with Estate Planning, Wills & Trusts, and Probate law. Elder law is part of our practice that helps meet the needs of clients like you. We offer you autonomy and freedom through effective estate and financial planning.

When should you plan for your future?

We recommend setting up a solid base of legal protections that will cover you for 30 years or more. If you are in your 50’s or 60’s we recommend that you meet with us to discuss your long-term legal needs.

Our Goal:

Our goal is to give you confidence and peace of mind. We will help you plan for any contingencies that may make happen accidentally or through illness. We can help you create a plan that covers incapacity and includes plans for surrogate decision-making – including preferences for long-term care and estate preservation should you personally not be able to make choices in the long run.

We are experienced in creating asset transfer plans to benefit children and grandchildren. We will also look at any existing plans you have created and guide you in areas that would benefit from our legal expertise.

Because of our vast experience in areas of law related to elder issues – including Social Security, Medicaid, and Income Preservation, we are able to recognize Elder law issues that you may not know you face. We will advise you how to move forward with appropriate legal protections in place.

At Davidge & Wright, L.P., Denton’s Elder Law Attorneys, we offer you assistance and confident decision-making and planning. We want you to be sure of your future – that your legal needs are addressed and your assets protected.

Fees and Follow-up:
