Elder Law

Aging can be overwhelming, and so we're here to help.

    Aging brings many challenges that can seem overwhelming to seniors and their family.  Some of these challenges include: the death of a spouse; diminished ability to handle personal and financial affairs; declining health; hospital or nursing home admissions; and elder abuse.  These challenges often require the expertise of an attorney who understands the constantly changing laws and regulations that pertain to estate planning, tax issues, Medicaid planning and long-term care planning. The Elder Law attorneys at Tomak and Podolsky, PLLC, are experienced and dedicated to families facing such challenges.  We will counsel, educate and advocate for our seniors and their families to make this stage of life easier for all involved.
