Many people have limited awareness of the intricacies and importance of estate planning. However, it is crucial that you have plans in the event of unforeseen circumstances, such as illness or unexpected death.
Joseph Cordell is a member of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys, a professional association of attorneys committed to improving the quality of legal services provided to seniors and people with special needs.
An area that encompasses a wide range of legal matters impacting the senior population and people with disabilities, including health care, long-term care, guardianship, retirement, Medicare/Medicaid, Social Security, and more.
Medicaid planning helps you come up with ways to make your income and assets inaccessible. There are several strategies attorneys have devised, in an effort to help you rearrange finances and legally shelter assets. However, these strategies can be complex.
Asset protection ensures that the assets you have worked to accumulate are legally safeguarded from third parties. This can include protection from creditors, legally minimizing unnecessary tax liabilities when transferring property, and protection from any other third party attempting to collect funds in the future from your assets, such as future civil plaintiffs in litigation suits.
Estate planning enables you to arrange your assets in a manner so that in the event of illness, injury, or death, your estate is inherited by the people, entities, and charities you designate to receive your assets and/or control of your affairs.
Cordell Planning Partners provides unique services, such as hosting free workshops to help you understand key topics in elder law. The workshops educate you on which protections you may need for your unique situation to ensure your assets and loved ones are taken care of in case you are unable to continue making those decisions.
