Older Americans face many unique legal challenges. At the Law Offices of David L. Carrier, P.C., we are committed to helping you, and your loved ones, through those challenges. Our firm concentrates on elder law and estate planning; we understand the issues and we do our job well. If you have any questions about Elder law in Michigan, please do not hesitate to contact our office today to speak to an experienced Norton Shores elder law lawyer to learn about the many ways that we can serve you.
Every situation is unique, and your issues deserve individual attention from a qualified professional. At our firm, we do not dabble in many different areas of law. We know what we are doing and how to do it. The needs of our clients always come first, and most of all, we want to be able to help you get through any difficult times.
Proper estate planning will ensure that your assets can be distributed in accordance with your wishes. At our firm we understand that estate planning is a very individualized process. Whether you are setting up an initial estate plan or you need to make a few simple adjustments, our experienced Norton Shores estate planning team can help.
There is always a possibility that you, or a loved one, will require long-term care. That can simply mean part time in-home care, or it can mean permanent placement in a nursing home. Regardless, long-term care can quickly become very expensive. Many families in Michigan spend countless hours worrying about how they are going to pay for it and if it will cost them all of their life savings. We can help you work with Medicaid, and the assisted living application process, to ensure that you or your loved one gets the necessary care that is needed, while working to protect your assets.
A medical directive will give you the chance to have input on how your medical treatment will go in the event that you are no longer able to make decisions for yourself. We suggest that all adults in Michigan make preparations for what will happen in the unfortunate event that they become incapacitated. Further, we can help you set up a power of attorney for health care so that you can appoint a trusted representative who can make healthcare decisions for you in the event that you can no longer do so. It is impossible to predict what will happen in the future, and it is important that you empower a trusted representative.
After a loved one passes away, no one wants to deal with complicated legal hurdles. Our firm is committed to making sure that the Michigan probate process, and the process of administering a trust, goes as efficiently as possible. We want you to focus on your friends and your family while our experienced Norton Shores elder law team handles the legal matters.
If you are in Norton Shores and have any elder law questions, please contact us today. We are always happy to help you in any way we can!
