Guardianship & Elder Law
ShuffieldLowman’s team of attorneys provides assistance to families faced with guardianship and elder law issues. For example, when a minor or disabled individual is entitled to personal injury proceeds, an inheritance or other type of settlement, our attorneys can work to obtain court approval for special needs trusts and guardianships and to develop the best plan for loved ones needing protection. We are well equipped to guide clients in creating estate plans as well as administering trusts and estates. We also counsel clients in disability and Medicaid planning, patients rights issues, cases involving elder abuse and exploitation, and guardianships of both minors and adults including emergency and contested proceedings.
