Elder Law

Elder Law- Medicaid Planning, special Needs Trusts, Guardianship, Durable Power of Attorney, living will, designation of helath care surrogateElder Law is a practice area which addresses the legal issues faced by the elderly. As a person ages, they become increasingly entangled with government programs, and legal and financial issues. Those needs can range from property management, planning for incapacity through use of advance directives, Medicaid planning, Social Security and Supplemental Security Income and estate planning. Allen Law, P.A. focuses a majority of its practice on Elder Law and is ready to help the elderly client, or their families, navigate those needs.


Probate- Inlcuding In the event of the death of a loved one who has left behind assets, probate may be necessary. Probate provides court oversight to ensure that a decedent's assets are distributed to the proper heirs (if the loved one died without a will) or beneficiaries (if the loved one died with a will) in an orderly process, after all claims against the decedent's estate have been taken care of. When someone dies with a will, that person has died testate and the will controls the disposition of the assets left at death. If a person dies without a will, that person has died intestate and the distribution of the assets is provided by law. Whether you are the nominated personal representative, family member, or beneficiary, you will likely need representation. Allen Law, P.A. represents clients in the following probate matters:

Estate Planning

Estate Planning- Trusts, wills, advance directives, and asset protection planningEstate planning is not only a necessity for wealthier persons who seek an estate plan that may reduce or even eliminate the federal estate tax burden on their estate, but should be considered by those persons of even modest incomes, whether young or old. A well executed estate plan can help a person in four very specific ways:

  1. Estate Planning can help a person plan for their future financial needs
  2. Estate Planning can help prepare for a smooth transition of a person's assets to their intended beneficiaries
  3. Estate Planning can provide guidance to a person's loved ones when that person is sick
  4. Estate Planning can reduce the cost of, and in some cases, even eliminate the need to probate.

* Most initial consultations are free for the first thirty minutes; however, some consultations may require a nominal fee that may be credited toward your retainer if you decide to engage our services. Consultations which exceed thirty minutes also may require a nominal fee based on a reduced hourly rate. Initial consultations are extended to first time potential clients on a firm wide basis.

In the event that you arrive at our office and the legal issue as presented by you does not fall into the practice area where a free consultation is provided, Allen Law reserves the right to charge a fee at that time prior to meeting with you. The purpose of an initial consultation is for the attorney to advise you, the prospective client what, if anything, may be done for you, and what the minimum fee therefore will be. The purpose is not to render a definitive legal opinion as it may be impossible to fully assess a matter within the time frame allotted for a consultation or with the (information or documents) that you may be able to provide at the initial consultation; therefore, the information provided to you at your initial consultation will be general in nature. If you seek specific legal advice, Allen Law, P.A. will be happy to render a legal opinion with regard to your matter at our regular hourly rate.
