OWM Elder Law Attorneys care about the rights, dignity and long-term financial, mental and physical health of our senior citizens. In fact, you can say we are quite passionate about the subject, as you can tell by the wealth of information in the publications section of our website.
OWM Law can help guide you or your aging loved one through a myriad of elder law issues such as:
- Understanding insurance plans - including Medicare and Medicaid
- The need for guardianship
- Selecting and financing of nursing home care
- Getting access to public benefits
- Age discrimination
- Consumer fraud
- Living wills and end of life treatment
- Estate planning and tax issues
Seniors have unique concerns and issues. Being elderly does not automatically equal being incapacitated, but when such issues do present themselves, good planning can be extremely valuable. It happens all too often that even well-meaning assistance can have disastrous results in this area of law, which is why consulting with OWM Elder Law Attorneys in Montgomery, Chester & Berks County is not only helpful, but necessary.
