Asset Protection Planning
The attorneys at Oalican Law Group assist clients in protecting all they have worked for. Many of our clients are retired or considering retirement and want a long term care plan in place to ensure their continued independence, control and protection of their assets as they age. An old estate plan (or worse, no estate plan) may no longer be sufficient to address clients’ current life circumstances and concerns, such as planning for possibility of future nursing home care. We help clients reexamine goals, revise long term care plans, and relax knowing they took the right steps to plan for the future.
MassHealth Eligibility and Application for Benefits
We assist families in obtaining nursing home MassHealth (or “Medicaid”) eligibility. Placing a loved one in a nursing home can be a very difficult and upsetting decision for a family. In addition to the emotional aspects, the financial cost alone is often overwhelming. There are many misconceptions about the “dos” and “do nots” of applying for MassHealth, and our knowledge and experience ensure that clients receive accurate information. The attorneys at Oalican Law Group assist families with all aspects of the MassHealth application process, from the first contact with the MassHealth agency, to managing communication with the nursing home, through approval for the program.
We craft specifically tailored estate planning instruments to address clients’ individual needs. Whether concerns involve avoiding probate, minimizing estate tax liability, protecting a child’s inheritance or ensuring that rights are protected in the event of incapacity, our experience results in the appropriate plan for each client.
