Experienced Guidance In Indiana Elder Law
Elder law refers to the unique legal matters involving seniors and their family members. Attorneys practicing elder law handle a range of issues and learn to work with many legal tools and techniques in order to meet the goals and objectives of their older clients.
Slater Law Office LLC has been providing clients throughout Indiana with exceptional representation in elder law matters since 1991. Using a holistic approach, our lawyers handle general estate planning, counsel clients about planning for incapacity and assist in planning for possible long-term care.
Your Family Is In Good Hands With Our Family
George G. Slater II is certified in elder law by the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA) and has practiced in Indiana since 1979. George, his wife Nancy Slater and his son Rich Slater have 60 years of combined legal experience. Nancy was a practicing physician for 28 years before joining George in his elder law practice, and her background is very helpful as we address the medical issues around aging, incapacity and nursing home care. Our team brings not only legal knowledge but also compassion and patience to these sensitive and complex family issues.
What Constitutes Elder Law?
Slater Law Office LLC handles all of the following legal matters that fall under the umbrella of elder law:
- Wills, trusts and estate planning
- Advance directives, living wills and end-of-life issues
- Appointment of health care representatives
- Durable powers of attorney
- Planning for care of a disabled family member, including a special needs trust
- Establishing guardianship of an elderly person to manage their affairs
- Elder financial abuse
- Medicaid planning for individuals and couples
- Placement and financing of care in a nursing home or an assisted living facility
- Probate and estate administration
Elder law is an integral part of our practice. We work closely with seniors and often with their adult children to help the family take a deliberate and proactive approach to these matters. Too often families put off preparations and end up reacting to a crisis or untimely death, which limits the options and leads to family friction. We understand that these can be difficult topics to discuss, but you will have peace of mind once steps are taken and plans are in place.
