By estate planning attorney Rick Law. Rick is founder of the Estate Planning Center at Law Elder Law in West Suburban Aurora, IL. LEL is a multi-generation law firm.
Dementia and chronic illness can be one of the most devastating experiences a family can face. Rick Law, through both his family and friends, has experienced that devastation and responded to it by founding Law Elder Law.
LEL is a firm dedicated to helping victims’ families not only cope with their grief and confusion, but discover how they can save the assets their loved one has worked a lifetime to achieve.
Rick has seen the incredible burden that is borne not only by the families of his clients, but has been affected within his own family. He has watched as family members have exhausted their own health and emotional resources by being sacrificial caregivers. This sacrifice is a major motivator that has caused us to develop the services and systems of Law Elder Law. We are dedicated to protecting and serving the elderly and those who love them.
Rick began his work in the area of Elder Law in 2000, when he received a frantic call from friends that began with a panic-driven question, “Rick, my husband has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. Am I going to lose my house? Everything we’ve worked for? What can I do?”
At the time that Rick received this question, he responded, “I don’t know.” Even though Rick did not know the answer, he did not let that stop him from setting out to help his friends. He embarked on a mission to find the answers for this aging couple, and others in distress. That phone call led Rick to discover the answers to questions that families in crisis ask, and desperately need to have answered. He learned quickly that almost no one seemed to know how to advise clients in this type of crisis.
