Clare P. Culhane's practice focuses upon estate probate and administration; estate and Medicaid planning, guardianships and related probate matters. Through her practice she strives to support the independence and dignity of elders by helping them to remain in the community, enjoying the comfort and security of their homes, as long as is safely possible.

Tools such as guardianships, trusts and durable powers of attorney may be used to provide elders with much needed assistance in matters such as money management, household assistance and home health assistance. In some cases, Attorney Culhane serves as the guardian or trustee while in other cases family members serve in that role. She also uses advance directives, such as a Health Care Proxy, to give the individual certain control over who may speak for them in the event of catastrophic illness or accident. Such documents give family members great peace of mind in an otherwise extremely stressful situation.

Additionally, she has significant experience in the representation of both buyers and sellers in residential real estate sales, landlord/tenant matters and incorporation of small businesses. Attorney Culhane obtained her law degree from Suffolk University Law School and graduated cum laude from Providence College with a B.A. in Social Work.

A member of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys, Attorney Culhane has been practicing since 1991.
