When selecting an elder law attorney to preserve assets or protect the rights of nursing home negligence victims, you need a lawyer possessing extensive experience, knowledge of the changing laws and compassion toward your family.
At Enea, Scanlan & Sirignano, LLP, specific areas of our Elder Law practice include:
Accident & Injuries Involving Elderly – Accidents can happen frequently to those who are older. We help fight for the rights of the elderly who have been involved in an accident.
Elder Law — Financial security is a priority for Westchester County seniors and baby boomers. By taking a proactive approach to long-term care planning, we can help reduce financial burdens and preserve hard-earned monies and assets.
Medicaid planning and applications — Medicaid rules are complicated and ever-changing. Families need an attorney with a thorough and up to the minute knowledge of those changes. From initial applications to crisis planning, we remain at the side of our clients.
Wills, trusts and estates — The goals of wills, trusts and estate plans are twofold. First, we want to maximize asset protection. Second, we want to minimize the consequences of estate taxes.
Special needs planning — Planning for a disabled family member provides necessities, comforts and luxuries to a loved one. The process also requires an attorney who is not only experienced and knowledgeable, but also caring and compassionate.
Guardianships — Without a power of attorney or other advance directive, a guardianship is needed if a family member suddenly becomes incapacitated. He or she needs a trusted representative to make important personal and financial decisions. Unfortunately, some guardianships result in litigation.
Wills, trusts and estates litigation — Disputes over wills, trusts and estates can pit family members against one another. While these cases can be legally complex and highly emotional, our attorneys will handle every aspect of your case and protect your interests related to an inheritance.
Probate and estate administration — During emotional times involving a death in the family, our Westchester County probate attorneys provide compassionate representation while attending to every detail of the probate process.
Powers of attorney and other advance directives – If you become incapacitated, you need a trusted representative to manage your financial affairs. The directive not only provides you a “voice,” but also minimizes controversy among family members over control.
In addition to the above areas of our elder law practice, we help clients make informed decisions on nursing home care. We also fight to protect the rights of nursing home residents victimized by negligence or malpractice.
