Compassionate Elder Law Attorney Proudly Serving New Jersey

Scotch Plains firm assists residents of Union County and other areas 

An effective elder law attorney can help you tackle various challenges that arise during the senior years. For many, the potential cost of long-term care is a serious concern, and you might benefit from a plan that can cover that expense through Medicaid benefits and other sources. If you haven’t drafted an enforceable will or advance medical directive, an unexpected problem could put your family members at risk. Located in Scotch Plains, Patricia A. Mack Attorney at Law works with New Jersey clients to understand their unique elder law needs and goals. Whether you are concerned about your own situation or are looking to aid an elderly loved one, I have the knowledge and experience to implement sound solutions. My firm will partner with you to protect your well-being and preserve your legacy no matter what comes along.

Protecting individuals and families as they age

As we age, we become increasingly vulnerable. Whether you wish to help your aging loved one transition to a facility where they can receive more comprehensive care, or you need help navigating the New Jersey Medicaid application process, my firm is here to support you on your journey. Many families learn too late that the very high cost of in-home care or a nursing facility is not covered by Medicaid. By working with my firm in advance, you or your family member might be able to maintain Medicaid eligibility without sacrificing your lifestyle.

I will help you understand your options so you can make informed decisions and take control of the matters that will have a substantial impact on your future. My top priority is providing personalized legal guidance to address your specific needs so you can move forward with confidence.

Estate planning and guardianship matters

Elder law needs such as estate planning are too important and personal to entrust to someone or some website that does not understand your particular needs. I take the time to understand what you want to accomplish and then outline your options. After reviewing your situation, I can help you draft a will or trust that distributes your assets after you have passed away. If you believe that someone close to you is no longer capable of handling their responsibilities, a guardianship might be in order.

Power of attorney documents and health care directives

You can never be sure when a sudden medical crisis will leave you unable to communicate. My firm can help you create a durable power of attorney document that names a trusted person to serve as your agent in the event that you are incapacitated. I also create health care directives where you are able to declare what types of treatment you want and don’t want. In every case, I use a holistic perspective to determine the most appropriate legal strategies for safeguarding your interests. I will work alongside you to answer your questions, address your concerns and empower you to make decisions with confidence. Reach out today to discuss your needs with a knowledgeable and compassionate elder law attorney.
