Boston Elder Law Attorneys
Located in Boston's Old City Hall, the law firm of Blake & Associates is committed to providing a legal oasis for families in crisis who have a family member suffering from diminished capacity. With more than thirty years of experience in elder law and estate planning, Boston attorneys David Blake, Carolyn Martello Spaulding, Clare Culhane and Jonathan Dunn are dedicated to assisting people who have the responsibility of caring for a disabled child, spouse, parent or other relative, as well as people who are planning for their own future needs.
Many of our clients are family members who have a loved family member with diminished capacity. To care for a family member who is either mentally ill or developmentally delayed, such family members need to evaluate the pros of Guardianship and Conservatorship. Guardianship often provides the tool our clients need to help their beloved family member receive the medical care they desperately need. Meanwhile Conservatorship allows family members to ensure that individuals assets are protected so that those assets are not subject to financial mismanagement.
Protecting Assets, Providing for Your Family's Financial Future
Other clients of ours are baby boomers who are worried about losing all of their assets due to the high cost of nursing home or long-term care expenses. Our lawyers use legal tools such as powers of attorney health care proxies and special needs trusts, trusts to preserve your assets while assuring that you and your family members receive the services you need.
Planning for Medicaid Eligibility and Long-Term Medical Care
People who are taking care of an aging parent often need a legal advocate who can steer them through the complex maze of Medicaid-planning. What may begin with a medical crisis can often lead a family to engage in very beneficial long-term planning that brings everyone greater peace of mind.
