Personalized, dedicated services... We will come to you!
Elder Law is a focused field of law. It encompasses the issues faced by the fastest growing segment of the U.S. population: the elderly. This area of law combines elements of Estate Planning, Wills and Trusts, Conservatorship (also called Guardianship), Health Care Planning, Family Planning, Medicare/Medicaid Planning, and Elder Rights.
At COSTA Law Offices, we concentrate our practice to focus on legal issues that affect senior individuals, their spouse, and/or their children. Although the general population may have the same issues from time to time, it is the elders that often have greater need for Guardianships, Conservatorships, and Long Term Care Planning.
Attorney COSTA, an RN and founder of COSTA Law Offices, brings 20 years experience in the medical field and understands the difficulties families face in dealing with difficult decisions. When someone you love can no longer make responsible decisions about their health and/or finances it may be time to have a guardian and/or a conservator appointed to protect one's health and assets. Should there be a need for a nursing home the cost can destroy the life savings of most families. An Elder Law Attorney may be able to help individuals and families plan and protect assets for their personal use rather than have it all go to a facility.
Our practice is centered on assisting individuals and families with the following:
- Estate Planning
- Estate Administration/Probate
- Social Security Disability
- Veteran’s Aid and Attendance
- Select Family Law Issues
- Real Estate Services
No one can predict the future. At COSTA Law Offices, we help families and individuals plan for the future through appropriate estate planning, Medicare and Medicaid planning and special needs planning. Some needs are more immediate, such as a pending real estate transaction, divorce, abuse or other elder law matter that must be handled today.
