Elder Law

The “golden years” are supposed to be filled with the joys of retirement, grandchildren and travel, but they are rarely enjoyed without various other complexities that individuals encounter as they age, including deteriorating health, financial concerns and family disputes. To meet these challenges, a unique area of law, Elder Law, has taken on greater value to millions of aging Americans and their caregivers. This area encompasses many different legal disciplines, including Estate Planning and Medicaid Planning.


Our attorneys are knowledgeable on the wide array of issues that impact the elderly and can assist you or your loved ones with the following matters:


• Healthcare planning, including powers of attorneys and living wills

• Estate Planning

• Long-term care planning

• Selecting the right long-term care facility

• Qualifying for public benefits such as Social Security Disability and Medicaid

• Guardianships

• Prevention of financial exploitation and elder abuse


While we communicate with caregivers, including spouses, children, and nursing home staff, our central focus remains our elderly clients. We work diligently to make sure the seniors we represent are protected and continue to enjoy a high quality of life as they age.

Smith Law Office provides representation in all divorce and family law issues. We will work hard to achieve amicable settlements over litigation, while protecting the rights of our clients and the best interests of their children.

Litigation as a Last Resort

Smith Law Office is dedicated to resolving family law disputes through mediation or negotiation whenever possible. Rather than draining resources and raising the intensity, we encourage divorcing couples and parents at odds to find common ground.


However, we understand that amicable settlements are not always possible. While we promote peaceful resolutions centered around the needs of clients’ children, our litigation experience enables clients to stand their ground and fight for their interests in court when necessary.
