Specializing in Elder Law
The Hook Law Group specializes in the practice of Elder Law. Our Board Certified Attorneys handle a broad range of issues affecting seniors and their families as they confront the challenges of aging. We take a holistic approach to legal issues, exploring options both for a senior’s current situation and planning for the future, especially when a debilitating illness may necessitate long term care.
What is Elder Law? Elder Law is a specific practice of law which assists seniors, disabled individuals, and their families in matters related to the following subjects:
- Estate planning (Trusts, Last Will & Testament, Powers of Attorney, Advanced Healthcare Directives, and other financial documents)
- Administration and Management of Estates and Trusts
- Special Needs Trusts
- Guardianship and Guardian Advocacy
- Medicaid (ICP Nursing Home) Planning and Application
- Preservation and transfer of assets to avoid spousal impoverishment when a spouse enters a nursing home.
