Fees for Elder Law | Medicaid Asset Protection
Elder Law and Medicaid Asset Protection Planning
All of our Elder Law fees are flat fees (i.e., not based on hourly billing which encourages inefficiency and rewards inexperience), and you won't be charged for our services* until Evan Farr personally makes his recommendations regarding the appropriate planning level and you agree in writing to our flat fee for the work to be done.
Our goal is always to help preserve the best possible quality of life for the elders we serve. We offer holistic services that include not only the services of Evan H. Farr, Certified Elder Law Attorney, but also the services of the rest of our firm, including our Estate Planning Paralegal and our Asset Protection Paralegals, all of whom work directly under the supervision of Mr. Farr.
This type of planning is for families who have a loved one who is already in a nursing home, about to go into a nursing home, or has significant health problems and/or physical limitations that are likely to lead to nursing home care within the next few years.
This level of planning is not based on preparation of specific documents; instead, it's based on providing you with solutions. Although many documents will be prepared as part of this level of planning, for a single or widowed client the goal of this planning level is to maintain the highest possible degree of personal dignity for the remainder of the client's lifetime, in part by protecting the greatest amount of assets in the shortest amount of time possible. Protected assets can be used to purchase goods and services not covered by Medicaid: goods such as dental work, hearing aids, vision aids, and personal items; services such as a private aide to provide a higher degree of care. For a married couple, the most important goal of this planning level is to ensure that the spouse who remains at home is able to live the remaining years of his or her life in utmost dignity and does not have to suffer a drastic reduction in his or her standard of living. Some clients also have a desire to leave a modest inheritance for their children, particularly if they have a disabled child or someone who needs special financial help.

Level 4 Planning also includes completion and filing of the Medicaid application and all documents and actions required to obtain Medicaid.
