The attorneys of Solkoff Legal, P.A. are nationally recognized for excellence in leadership in the field of elder and disability law. The goal of Solkoff Legal, P.A. is to make planning for long-term care, estate planning and similar matters understandable and accessible for all of its clients. Practice areas include:
General Aging and Disability Advice: Sometimes the greatest service we bring to a client is our depth of experience and resources in aging and disability matters. A client may come in to our office for a specific legal issue such as a new Will, but that client often leaves with a feeling that the greatest value is the guidance and support which comes so naturally from each attorney and staff member.
Long-Term Care Planning: We help our clients pursue alternatives to nursing homes but if a nursing home or other extensive care is necessary, we help alleviate the otherwise overwhelming burden of placing a loved one in a facility. We accomplish our client’s goals by protecting our clients’ life savings against catastrophic care costs and by lending our 11-year heritage of assisting families to access the best of long-term care. Our attorneys have helped thousands of people to protect their life savings while accessing better care.
Estate Planning: We are qualified in the use of wills and trusts and other estate planning tools. We achieve great comfort and success for our clients because we focus on the lifetime needs of our clients and then work that “lifetime plan” into how assets will be distributed upon death.
Special Needs Planning for the Disabled: In order for many disabled people to obtain health insurance and other assistance, they must qualify for Medicaid and other government programs based on financial need. We help our clients to legally protect assets so as to retain or obtain eligibility for these sometimes life-giving benefits. This planning also applies to our clients who wish to provide for a disabled heir in a will or a trust.
Guardianship: We seek ways for our clients to avoid guardianship proceedings but sometimes it is necessary for families to pursue guardianship when it is the only way to help an incompetent loved one. We have great experience in guardianship cases and can help our clients minimize costs and aggravation in these proceedings.
Probate, Estate and Trust Administration: Solkoff Legal, P.A. has attorneys and staff dedicated to the efficient and safe administration of wills, trusts and estates. Through years of experience, our firm can provide efficiencies not easily found. Our goal is to settle estates as quickly as possible, with good communication and diligence.
