                  You need Medicaid Planning !!



    Dr. Tar has personal knowledge on the strengths and weaknesses of the regional nursing homes. No other attorney can give you this guidance.  He can guide you through legal Medicaid Planning techniques that are little know.


    Do not make the mistake of having a non-attorney trick you into thinking they can engage in Medicaid Planning. Do not fall for the trick when such non-attorneys they say they have their own attorneys they work with. You want an Elder Law Attorney to work for you. Ask whether the attorney is Board Certified. If not, run the other way.


*        WILLS & TRUSTS




 We provide different prices for creation of advanced directive documents such as wills.






        Some folks want the absolute lowest price for wills, durable power of attorneys, living wills, health care surrogate documents. They want documents that are legally sound, created quickly, and done inexpensively. They don't want to pay a lot of money for legal time. They arleady know exactly what they want and they do not want advise regarding estate planning issues. They want a simple will such as "...everything I have goes to my wife and kids." Their assets are not in the millions and husband and wife may want simple mirror image wills. Similarly, they know what powers they want to transfer through a durable power of attorney, and they have thought about end of life issues relating to their living will and health care surrogate matters. We will work with these folks to meet their needs at the cheapest fee rates possible. This is our flat rate document creation service. This is our SILVER/ECONOMY SERVICE.


        Some folks have more complicated situations and issues that require more guidance and advice from an Elder Law attorney. They are not sure what the best way to use a will v. a trust may be. They need guidance with end of like matters relating to the creation of living wills, health care surrogate assignment, and durable power of attorney power transfer. Their plans for distribution of estate assets are not too complicated but will require several meetings with the attorney to make sure everything is just right. We will work with these persons to meet their goal. This is our GOLD SERVICE. Fees for these services are higher than for the SILVER/ECONOMY SERVICE because more attorney time will be required.


        Some folks have complicated estates. The value of their estate is in the millions and they have complicated will provisions that must be tailored to their specific needs. They will need a complete assessment of their estate, with itemization of all of its components, and consideration of advanced disposition techniques including the use of living trusts, irrevocable trusts, or special needs trusts. This is our PLATINUM/CONCIERGE SERVICE. This type of service will require a lot of legal time and is the most expensive and comprehensive service we provide. This service will likely require multiple revisions of key documents and multiple meetings with the client.
