The Importance of Elder Law
Protecting Your Loved Ones in Their Golden Years
As our loved one’s age, protecting their legal rights and interests becomes increasingly important. Elder law is a specialized area of legal practice that focuses on seniors’ unique needs and challenges.
Protecting Seniors’ Legal Rights and Interests
Whether your loved one needs help with estate planning, long-term care planning, or navigating the complexities of government benefits, an elder law attorney can provide the guidance and support they need.
Providing for Your Loved Ones’ Future Needs
Long-term care planning is another critical aspect of elder law. An elder law attorney can help your loved one plan for future care needs, whether in-home care, assisted living, or nursing home care. They can also help your loved one navigate the Medicaid system and other government benefits, ensuring they receive the care they need without depleting their assets.
Navigating the Complexities of the System
Navigating the complexities of government benefits can be overwhelming, especially for seniors. An elder law attorney can provide guidance and support in navigating the Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid systems and other government benefits programs. They can help your loved one understand their rights and entitlements and ensure they receive the benefits they are entitled to.
Preparing for the Future
As our loved ones age, their legal needs become increasingly complex. Elder law attorneys are trained to provide compassionate, knowledgeable guidance and support in navigating these challenges. If you have an elderly loved one, consider consulting with an elder law attorney to protect their legal rights and interests in their golden years.

My husband and I needed to create our wills and had no idea where to start. Antanavage Farbiarz PLLC walked us through the whole process. Everyone at the firm was very patient and kind. We can now rest easy knowing that our final arrangements are complete, thanks to Antanavage Fabiarz PLLC.
We were very happy with the work that Attorney Farbiarz did for us. He and his staff were fully functional through Covid – 19 and did almost all of our work electronically and virtually. We would use Antanavage Farbiarz again and would recommend them to others.
Russel Farbiarz is a credit to his profession. He listened to my story without judgement, he was kind, thorough, and he explained the law in a way I could understand. He helped me accomplish my goal that would have gone unrealized without his attention. Best Attorney EVER!!!
Russel and his staff are a very professional organization. While thoughtful of your needs, they stay on task to work with you to achieve a timely resolution. I have recommended him to many people that have family legal matters, wills, divorce, estate planning, etc… Great people for challenging problems.
