Thanks to advancements in medical care and healthy lifestyles, many of us can expect to live a very long life. At Paglen Law Office, we help our clients plan for the financial challenges we all face as we grow older. When faced with the need for long term health care, whether home care, assisted living, or nursing home care, many people are forced to deplete their life savings. Farms, homes and property intended for the next generation are sold at auction to pay Medicaid and nursing home liens. We are dedicated to helping our clients plan for their own health care needs while also preserving assets for the next generation.
If you are a loved one are facing the financial burdens of nursing home care, we are here to help. With proper planning, you or your loved one may be eligible to receive Medicaid benefits sooner rather than later.
Paglen Law Office is dedicated to helping seniors and the people who love them plan for and resolve the complex, difficult and emotionally draining legal issues that are associated with aging, disability and special needs populations.
Louise is passionate about utilizing the law for the benefit of her clients and approaches every matter with compassion, integrity and a commitment to excellence. Louise helps families plan for their own futures and the futures of the people, pets and charitable organizations they love. She understands that estate planning is not just about money; it’s about hard work, commitment and love. When Louise helps a client develop an estate plan she knows it is important to protect the special needs of children, surviving spouses and disabled family members.
She can even help clients plan for the beloved family pet or a favorite charity. Most people know it’s important to have a will that directs how their property will be distributed after death. However, many people don’t realize how important it is to also plan for a long life, a disruptive medical crisis, or an accident. These circumstances can render a person unable to make decisions for themselves or care for their loved ones. In the absence of the proper planning tools, families struggling with grieving or managing a medical crisis, may be forced to expose their most private family health matters and finances to complex court proceedings and costly probate fees, just so they can make important financial and health care decisions for their loved ones.
Louise helps individuals and families plan for the unexpected so that family matters and family finances remain private and in the family. Thanks to the advances in medicine, health care, nutrition and agriculture, many of us can expect to live very long lives. Although a long life is a blessing, it can bring tremendous financial challenges that can deplete assets that took a lifetime of hard work and multiple generations to accumulate. Louise helps families facing a nursing home crisis to protect assets for the benefit of their loved ones and future generations.
Louise uses advanced estate planning and asset protection tools and techniques to help individuals, veterans and their survivors, qualify for health care benefits including Medicaid and Veterans Aid and Attendance.
