Elder Law

Compassionate Elder Law Service for Aging Individuals and Family Members

Elder law is the practice of law concerning issues that affect aging individuals.  At Life Care Planning Law Group, we practice Elder Law in the context of Life Care Planning – meaning we address the entire individual and family situation together with less emphasis on a transactional practice and more on developing an ongoing relationship.  We completely guide our clients through the complicated legal issues that may arise as they age and we assist you in navigating the social and service component to addressing elder issues.  We carefully listen to you as you describe your situation, your finances, your legal needs, and your future goals.  

How We Can Help You Or Your Loved One

We work diligently to protect our clients’ legal rights during times of crisis and vulnerability.  Our elder law practice includes:

  • Medicaid planning: We help clients with all levels of Medicaid planning whether it is establishing trusts, life estates, or other pre-planning techniques, preparing Medicaid application, advocating for Medicaid approval at the hearing, appeal, and Superior Court levels and working to find the right placement and financing for the elder whether it is at home, in assisted living or in long term care facility.
  • Guardianship and conservatorship: Our attorneys help people establish or remove guardians and conservators for those who are not able to make sound decisions or care for themselves.
  • Crisis planning: We support aging individuals and their families in navigating unforeseen or unplanned situations.
  • Estate planning: We assist clients with their estate planning needs from drafting a wide range of planning documents (such as wills, living trusts, special needs trusts) to probate administration and representation throughout the court process.
  • Creation of legal documents:  Our attorneys are experienced in drafting a wide variety of legal documents to implement a client’s estate plan, including very important proxy documents such as health care proxy and durable power of attorney.


The Attorneys at Life Care Planning Law Group are uniquely qualified to assist elders and their families.  As owners of ParentCareUSA, a Medicaid application and Geriatric Care Management Company, our attorneys are vastly knowledgeable in the laws of Massachusetts that affect aging individuals.  We are active members of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys and its Massachusetts chapter  and we closely monitor the pulse of this ever-evolving and changing area of the law.  With our extensive knowledge and awareness of the resources available, we help individuals and family members manage their affairs so that they may gain peace of mind.  We provide extensive elder law services in a caring, compassionate manner.  Let us put our experience to work for you.
