Elder Law

A trusted advisor is critical when navigating the complicated territory of elder law. Attorney Ismail helps protect assets from the high cost of nursing home care and eventual estate liabilities, with a comprehensive approach that can eliminate the need for hiring a CPA as well as an attorney. 

 

Attorney Ismail's law offices specialize in serving the legal needs of the "Sandwich Generation" -- the baby boomers who are often "sandwiched between" taking care of their parents and their own children simultaneously. Frequently, the older generation is tranferring wealth to the boomers, but at the same time the parents are living longer and need legal advice regarding estate planning, long term care and dealing with aging and disability.
