Our Elder Law Services in NSW

Elder Law Estate Planning

Estate planning is a vital aspect of Elder Law. It involves making arrangements for the distribution of assets after an individual passes away. We specialise in creating customised estate plans that reflect your wishes and protect your loved ones’ inheritance. Our elder law attorneys understand the importance of properly addressing issues such as wills, trusts, and probate to ensure a smooth transition of assets to the next generation.

Elder Law Asset Protection

Protecting your hard-earned assets is crucial, especially as you age. Our Elder Law firm provides comprehensive strategies to safeguard your assets from potential risks, such as long-term care expenses, lawsuits, or financial exploitation. We can help you navigate complex legal tools like irrevocable trusts, Medicaid planning, and other asset protection strategies tailored to your unique circumstances.

Elder Law Guardianship and Conservatorship

In certain situations, an elderly individual may require assistance with decision-making or managing their affairs. Our Elder Law attorneys are experienced in matters of guardianship and conservatorship, ensuring that vulnerable individuals are protected and their rights upheld. We guide families through the legal process, advocating for the best interests of those who may no longer be able to make decisions independently.

Elder Law Power of Attorney

Granting someone power of attorney is an important step in Elder Law planning. It designates an individual to make decisions on your behalf if you become incapacitated. Our Elder Law attorneys can help you establish a power of attorney document that clearly outlines your wishes and ensures that a trusted person is authorised to act in your best interests when you are unable to do so. 

This includes provisions such as advanced care directives to put into writing your future wishes for medical treatments and healthcare when you have a serious injury or are incapacitated.
