Northborough Elder Law Attorney

"Elder law" is an unfamiliar legal area to many people. As our older population grows, so does the need for elder law attorneys. Not just an area that encompasses wills and estate planning, elder law is a holistic approach to law for older Americans.

When you were young, you may have drafted a will and covered for eventualities of an untimely death. Many times, however, people do not update these documents, and just as we wrinkle as we get older, those documents do, too. Because we are now living into our eighties, nineties and even making it to centenarians, we have broader issues than just where our money goes.

Southborough Guardianship Lawyer

Elder law can help with all legal areas that affect senior citizens. As elder law practitioners, we at George E. Pember, Attorney at Law, are not only aware of up-to-the-minute changes in Medicare and Social Security law, we also collaborate with other professionals to ensure you retain all available options for the following:

  • Estate planning
  • Preserving assets
  • Mass health
  • Nursing homes/housing options
  • Medicaid trusts
  • Guardianships
  • Conservatorships

Because health and housing changes can come unexpectedly, advance preparation is essential. We advise considering all eventualities while you and your spouse are capable of doing so — if you do not, and an emergency arises, you may find decisions made for you by someone who does not know you or your wishes. In addition, advance planning gives us the opportunity to plan for estate, gift and income taxes.

These are complex decisions and should be made with the help of a skilled and compassionate attorney. At George E. Pember, Attorney at Law, in Northborough, Massachusetts, we understand that you have worked hard for your assets, and that you want to optimize what is available to you for any care you need, as well as ensure that your heirs are protected.

Please come visit us. For over three decades we have been working to safeguard you. We have the knowledge you need.
