Elder Law

Often times, elder individuals and families are overwhelmed by making important decisions concerning financial security during their lifetime. They need the expertise of legal counsel as well as other professionals in order to guide them through both federal and state laws surrounding elder law issues. The DeStefano Law Group has experience creating comprehensive estate plans that include wills, power of attorneys, health care directives, and health care power of attorneys that will protect clients during their lifetime. We can help protect client’s assets as well as minimize tax liabilities. We can help develop a unique estate plan that provides specific provisions for certain individuals and at the same time allow that member to share in any succession plan.

Laws governing estate planning, long term care, and asset preservation are complicated and constantly changing. That is why we have aligned ourselves with various other professionals such as accounting and tax professionals so that we can better protect your interests. The DeStefano Law Group is committed to providing quality service to our clients.

Nursing Home Abuse
The DeStefano Law Group has experience in representing the elderly against nursing home abuse and has the resources needed to help nursing home residents and their families with these type of claims. Our goal is not only to recover for our clients but also to deter other nursing homes from engaging in similar conduct. If it can be proven that a nursing home or its employees have acted negligently, they may be held liable for any resulting damages. Damages available in an nursing home abuse lawsuit may include medical bills, pain and suffering, disfigurement, and disability.
