Elder Law and Estate Law

Estate planning law is the process of legally structuring the future disposition of current and projected assets.  Don’t be fooled by hokey TV personalities and “Elder Law” attorneys that tell you that you need a Living Trust or an Irrevocable Living Trust without first doing an in depth analysis of your current financial, legal and health status.  Elder Care Law and Estate Planning is different for each and every family.  At the Law Offices of Castiglia-Rubinstein and Associates we do not make boiler plate, cookie cutter estate plans; we create custom tailored plans for each family’s specific needs. Elder care law is the area of law that deals with the needs of the aging population; including Medicaid issues, long term care provisions, estate tax reduction, probate avoidance, and asset preservation. The specialty of “elder law” evolved as the majority of the population of baby boomers started to reach the age of retirement.  It has become increasingly clear that the complicated legal issues confronting seniors; in particular qualifying for Medicaid coverage of long term care issues in home and in nursing homes were beyond the expertise of “general practice” attorneys. In recent years, it is increasingly seen in the field of elder law being described as “elder care law” and the lawyers as “elder care” attorneys.

What Are the Issues Addressed By Elder Care Lawyers and Special Needs Attorneys?

Caregiving.

Unlike many other areas of the law, elder care law is defined by the needs of the client, rather than a particular field of law. Because of this, elder care law attorneys are also aware that their clients’ needs often extend beyond the basic legal services. For this reason, the law offices of Castiglia-Rubinstein and associates are linked to a network of professionals in local communities who serve the needs of the senior population.  To put it simply, estate planning involves deciding how you want your assets distributed after you die (or become unable to make your own financial decisions). Estate planning can be complicated, so it’s best to consult a lawyer and a financial and tax advisor when drawing up your estate plan.
