The ever-increasing life expectancy rate in the U.S. allows individuals to enjoy their lives, their children and their grandchildren more than ever. However, longer lives leave families facing emotional and financial challenges regarding medical expenses, assisted living expenses and possible nursing home costs, which are also continuously rising.

The elder law attorneys at Marder, Roberson & DeFelice Law Offices, LLC, in Ellington, Connecticut, help relieve the stress associated with these concerns by developing comprehensive estate plans that address long-term care, Medicaid and Medicare planning while protecting personal assets from being exhausted.

Our elder law lawyers have more than 90 years of experience providing for the unique needs of senior citizens. We take the time to fully understand each client’s situation and objectives so we can develop the proper strategy to meet his or her financial and legal needs.

Our firm represents clients in all aspects of estate planning and elder law, including:

  • Title 19 (Medicaid) and Medicare eligibility planning
  • Asset protection
  • Conservatorships
  • Guardianships
  • Living Trusts
  • Health Care Directives
  • Durable Powers of Attorney
  • Appointment of Health Care Agent

The laws that apply to Medicaid eligibility and other government-funded benefits programs are complex. It’s important to speak with a qualified elder law attorney before you make significant gifts to children or take other estate planning steps. We help families prepare for the expense of long-term care and protect their personal assets at the same time.

Many of our elder law services are offered for a flat fee. We serve clients throughout Tolland County and Hartford County. Call 860-872-3000 or email us, to schedule an appointment.
