Lawyers Protecting the Rights of Seniors

Aging is a part of life. As your loved ones get older, there will be a number of important decisions that must be made. Many of these concerns may be related to long-term care, how to pay for such care, and general estate planning. At Otte & Czajkowska, LLC, we understand that every family is different and faces a unique set of circumstances, challenges, and needs. That is why it is so important to work closely with an experienced elder law attorney who is equipped to help you and your loved ones plan for the road ahead.

At our law firm, our approach to elder law begins with getting to know our clients and understanding their values and objectives. We provide a full range of elder law services including:

  • Estate planning: Our lawyers offer skilled guidance with the creation and execution of wills, trusts, powers of attorney, and advance medical directives.
  • Government benefit planning: We assist with the process of applying for Medicaid, veterans' benefits, and other public assistance programs.
  • Long-term care planning: If you are considering a long-term care or assisted living facility for your loved one, we can help you find the option that best suits your family's situation.
  • Adult guardianships: At some point, your aging loved one may become disabled and unable to manage his or her personal affairs. An adult guardianship could allow you to make decisions on your loved one's behalf.

Money is often a serious concern for individuals as they grow older, especially if the need for long-term care becomes apparent. Americans are living longer than ever before, but the rising costs of healthcare mean that it can be difficult for seniors to afford the care they need. At Otte & Czajkowska, LLC, we are equipped to use a variety of tools to help seniors obtain quality care, including revocable living trusts, irrevocable trusts, OBRA trusts, and supplemental needs trusts.
