Missouri lawyer dedicated to seniors’ healthcare

Access to good medical care is essential to your health and quality of life. We assist you in maneuvering through the red tape of Medicare, Medicaid and private insurance companies so you receive the medical treatments, diagnostic tests and medications available to you. We can help you plan your future medical care and make crucial legal end-of-life decisions. We can draft legally valid medical documents that ensure your intentions are honored if you become unable to make those decisions for yourself.

Skilled lawyer assisting seniors with estate planning

We are experienced attorneys who can advise you on the most successful ways to achieve your estate planning goals. Through meticulous analysis, we guide you on how best to transfer your assets, minimize estate taxes, establish guardianship for minor children, support personal philanthropic causes and even protect a beloved pet. I can draft a will that reflects your desires and establish living trusts and other legal entities beneficial to your estate.

Maintain financial independence with guidance from a knowledgeable lawyer

Retirement gives you the opportunity to enjoy family and hobbies, but if not well-planned, living on a fixed income can create financial stress. We can help you organize your affairs and plan for your retirement. If you choose to continue working, we are prepared to protect your rights in the workplace.
