, Celebrating 15 Years Together
Greetings!

Elder Law Associates PA is so excited to be celebrating the 15th anniversary of our firm this month and year. It seems like only yesterday that Howie joined me at the firm to serve our clients on Sept. 1, 2005. Now, 15 years later, Elder Law Associates PA has helped thousands of clients in both Florida and New York with their elder law, special needs planning and elder law litigation needs, from estate planning, wills and trusts, probate and trust and estate administration to guardianship, Medicaid and VA planning, and advance directives (durable power of attorney, designation of pre-need guardian, designation of healthcare surrogate, living will and HIPAA release).

Over the last 15 years, we have grown and changed, assembling the most talented team of associates, paralegals, legal assistants, and other elder law professionals at the top of their game – all dedicated to serving our clients’ needs. We have wonderful clients and referral sources, many of whom have been with us throughout our history. We’ve put together a little video about how we got started, how we have grown and what we’re doing now. You can watch it here.

As the saying goes, we couldn’t have done it without you! Thank you so much for allowing us to serve you and work with you over the years. We’re looking forward to another amazing 15 years and beyond! If you have any questions for us or need assistance with a legal matter, please don’t hesitate to contact us, email Info@ElderLawAssociates.com or call (561) 750-3850 or toll free 1-800-ELDERLAW. Stay safe and well!

You can hire caregivers for them in their home, place them in a care facility such as an assisted living facility or a skilled nursing home, or move them into your home for you to care for them or to have caregivers in your home. If they have assets, you can use their funds for the care, you can seek our advice to qualify them for Medicaid or VA benefits, or you can pay for their care yourself. Out of those options, bringing the loved one into your home is usually the last choice. The reasons are many … Read More
Earlier this month, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis announced that nursing homes and assisted living facilities will allow visitors again after a six-month visitation ban due to the coronavirus pandemic. The governor signed an executive order on Sept. 1, lifting the ban immediately after receiving a report with recommendations from his Task Force on the Safe and Limited Re-Opening of Long-Term Care Facilities. Despite the executive order, not all of Florida’s long-term care facilities have opened their doors to visitors just yet.  Read More

We get this question quite a bit from our clients and thought it would be helpful to give you more information about testamentary trusts and living trusts, including their main features, benefits and drawbacks. Trusts are often used in estate planning, and can be revocable or irrevocable, as we have discussed in previous newsletters. In addition, they can be established during one’s lifetime (known as living trusts) or testamentary (created upon death). You may have heard a testamentary trust also being referred to as a “will trust” or “trust under will.” That’s because … Read More
