We all know that we need to plan for our future. Hindsight is always 20/20, and matters of money are no different. So, what CAN an experienced Elder Care advisor and estate planner do for you?
In my experience, an experienced Elder Law attorney provides 4 valuable benefits:
1.) Safety – Because it’s too hard to get back what you lost.
I have seen it all too often. Clients come into my office having spent a good portion of their savings, and exhausted their mental and physical wellness in the pursuit of caring for a loved one who has succumbed to an unexpected illness. It’s our nature as caregivers to offer our compassion and sacrifice our time and our own well being for a loved one that is sick or unable to care for themselves.
A huge part of what we do as Elder Law attorneys is provide you with peace of mind. The satisfaction in knowing that whether or not a crisis occurs, we can help set you on the path of meeting your personal, financial, and familial plans, hopes, dreams and goals.
2.) A reasonable rate of return on your money – Most people do not expect to be stock market wizards. They want a safe and consistent way to be able to support their lifestyle as they age.
Even if you’re not an investor or financially savvy, it stands to reason that 10 dollars spent now is better than spending 20, 50, or 100 dollars down the road for the same product or service – minus the money lost for failing to plan ahead.
As estate planners, we want the best for you and your future. For myself and many of my colleagues, the reason we practice elder law and estate planning is not out of greed or arrogance. We understand it can be a personal and emotional experience, and we believe we are providing a valuable community service. One which can be a transformational in many circumstances.
We understand that your goals and dreams for your family and retirement are of crucial importance to you and your loved ones. Which is we we are approachable trustworthy advisors for you and your future.
Next time, we’ll delve deeper and take a look into the other two crucial benefits an Elder Law attorney can provide.

My wife and I had our first child three years ago. That’s when we decided to set up a trust, should anything happen to either of us. We reached out to Zach Hesselbaum to help us out. He was very thorough and professional throughout the whole process. Zach went above and beyond to make sure that we understood every detail of setting it up and he did an excellent job. We recently had our second child a few months ago. With the new baby, he helped us make the necessary revisions to the trust. Zach made this process great for us! I would definitely recommend using him for any of your estate planning needs!
