In addition, Michael J. O'Connor & Associates understands the hardship and distress many elderly clients face at the prospect of estate planning and requiring nursing home care. Estate planning is one process that no one should ignore, however, most individuals spend more time planning a family vacation than planning their financial future. Our goal is to give our clients peace of mind in their golden years. Our elder law attorneys assist clients in meeting the eligibility requirements for Medicaid. Through a process of gifting and exempt expenditures, we strive to preserve our clients assets from welfare liens.
