Biography

From nursing cost crisis to estate planning, Keystone Elder Law P.C. can help families maintain independence, dignity, and assets for aging loved ones.

Keystone Elder Law shields the middle class from the costs of getting older. We do that in the following ways:

1. We design estate plans that fit each client's need for asset protection, keeping in mind predictable threats like long-term care costs and taxes. A plan for incapacity is just as important as a plan to distribute property after someone dies.

2. When a family member's health declines, a higher level of care may be necessary. We guide families through care options and, where appropriate, achieve Medicaid eligibility for long-term care costs.

3. When a loved one dies, someone must administer the estate. Setting an estate involves a series of steps established by law. We take the burden away from the executor of the estate to make sure that the rules are followed.
