Caring for a spouse, a parent, or family member is a tough job. Preparing for the road ahead can be scary and difficult.
Unfortunately, many people put off planning for elder care, either for themselves or for their parents, and often have to make rash decisions during an emergency.
An elder law attorney can assist in preparing estate planning documents, typically powers of attorney and advanced directives that allow you to make decisions for your family members when they can no longer do this for themselves.
An elder law attorney can also review what assets are available and put together a strategic plan for their proper use. Elder law attorneys provide valuable assistance on Medicaid, Medicare, Veteran’s Benefits, Probate, and Estate planning.

After an unexpected and long stay in the hospital to assess my elderly mother's mental stability, my family was devastated and confused when we were told that she could no longer live on her own. We were faced with a multitude of questions and fortunately, our financial advisor (who we trusted implicitly) told us about elder law attorney, Christina Lesher. She had helped him through the legal and emotional maze of decisions with his own mother. The best decision we ever made was scheduling an appointment with Christina Lesher. My sister, wife, and I met with her and developed a plan of action that included legal decisions that were critical to my mother's care. Ms. Lesher was compassionate, professional, and highly competent in a field that we didn't even know existed. Ms. Lesher filed for Veteran's benefits, (an extremely arduous process), that resulted in my mother receiving benefits doubling her income from Social Security. Ms. Lesher and her staff have contacted us regularly throughout the past year and are quick to respond to any questions or concerns that we may have. My family and I feel blessed to have found Christina Lesher and we give her law firm the highest rating!
I would highly recommend Christina Lesher, as she is a most knowledgeable elder law expert.
Every step of the way Christina made me feel like I was her only client.
Christina was the glue that kept all of us together and kept me focused on what had to be accomplished I could not have done it without her.
