"Elder Law" describes the main focus of our practice.


"Elder Law attorneys" or, some people say "elder care attorneys" are are lawyers who handle a range of legal issues that arise as a person ages. These include:


  • The need to have important documents in place to name people who can make decisions, such as a health care power of attorney and financial power of attorney.
  • Questions and concerns about long term care planning, such as Medicaid (also called Title 19 or MA)  and Family Care.
  • Concerns about what happens to your assets if you or a loved one needs nursing home care.
  • A need to pursue guardianship where a loved one has an illness and did not have powers of attorney in place.
  • A need for a tough lawyer when someone is trying to pursue a guardianship that is not appropriate.
  • Financial abuse and exploitation.


As experienced elder law attorneys, the main focus for us is to guide you through these issues and provide the legal help that you need. Elder law attorneys Carol Wessels and Jessica Liebau have over 35 years of combined experience in elder law, and have represented clients at all levels of proceedings from administrative hearings to the United States Supreme Court. 


Often, families who are in the process of searching for assisted living or "memory care" for a loved one are told that it is a good time to see an "elder care attorney." If you are in that position, you are in the right place. We can help.
