Virginians are living longer, healthier lives thanks to modern medicine and access to some of the best hospitals around. As the Baby Boomer generation reaches retirement age, we are seeing more individuals with retirement funds and investments than any other prior generations.
Entering this new era with longer life spans and more assets to manage, we find that many clients are in need of assistance with elder law issues. Elder law covers many scenarios that come to light in your later years, such as handling your estate after death, medical wishes should you become incapacitated, and power of attorney.
At Zelnick & Erickson (ZE), our elder law attorneys are dedicated to helping our clients understand elder law and all of its components. We want to help you fully realize your planning goals. While this often includes the drafting of estate planning documents, we recognize that there are other issues that fit under the elder law umbrella.
The elder law attorneys at ZE can help you with:
- Estate planning (drafting wills and trusts);
- Disability/Incapacitation planning (including medical directives, power of attorney designations, and other financial and health care decisions);
- Elder abuse and exploitation;
- Adult guardianships and conservatorships (for your disabled and/or legally incapacitated loved ones); and
- Other aspects of elder law and estate administration.
We understand that elder law involves many complex issues, especially as families grow and change over time. That is why our team of elder law attorneys are here to help you every step of the way, which means ensuring you fully understand all of your legal decisions during the process.
You can begin the process by contacting us to set up a consultation, signing up for our newsletter, or visiting our estate planning blog. Or, if you prefer, you can call our office at 703-494-7171. Either way, we promise that someone from our legal team will address your questions in a timely manner so that you can concentrate on what's most important to you.
