Elder Law

Legal Services in Setting Up Guardianships, Medicaid Planning, and Advanced Directives

At Fields, Dehmlow & Vessels, in Marietta, Ohio, we have experience in advising clients regarding the legal issues involved in aging. The legal concerns for the elderly are becoming increasingly complex, and it has become essential that people obtain legal advice regarding their questions on finances, taxes, property, and healthcare as they grow older.

What happens if I get sick and cannot make medical decisions for myself? Can the state seize my assets? Can I give money to my children without paying taxes? Can my spouse conduct business on my behalf? Who will take care of my disabled child?

We advise clients on the following elder law matters:

  • Estate planning and wealth transfer
  • Advanced directives
  • Powers of attorney
  • Living wills
  • Healthcare powers of attorney
  • Medicaid planning
  • Asset protection
  • Retirement benefits
  • Nursing home issues
  • Planning for special needs
  • Tax issues regarding aging and wealth transfer
  • Gifts as a means of wealth transfer
  • Long-term care
  • Guardianships
