Lagerlof, LLP’s Elder Law team is dedicated to working with seniors and their family members in all stages of life.   

Our attorneys assist families with estate planning and administration, incapacity planning and asset preservation planning. Each of these planning areas requires unique skills and a depth of knowledge of the law, as well as a commitment to understanding the circumstances of the senior. Our approach is sensitive and respectful to the special challenges seniors face, learning as much as we can about the unique situation of each client and then applying a creative problem-solving approach to explore the options. 

Our team members also have expertise sorting out difficult financial issues within a trust and managing family disputes over senior care. 

We have extensive experience in elder abuse litigation, Medi-Cal long term care planning and applications, special needs trusts, conservatorships, guardianships and trust and probate administration. We assist families in all aspects of planning including drafting of special needs and other trusts, home care and nursing problems, and assistance in selecting long-term care providers. With many years of experience in these fields, we are dedicated to helping our clients navigate through what can be difficult decisions.
