Elder Law

Caring for an aging family member, such as a spouse or parent, can be a labor of love. It is a task that we often gladly accept out of love, devotion and duty to those who have cared for us over the years, but it is also a responsibility that is daunting, physically tiresome and emotionally draining. Oftentimes, those in positions of such responsibility are overwhelmed and in need of help, but they find it difficult to request assistance from others. These times are frequently made more problematic due to common effects of aging, such as loss of memory and physical ability and function. Sometimes, these effects dictate that you protect your loved ones from others or even themselves, requiring court-ordered guardianships and conservatorships.

At the Herbert Machnik Law Firm, we understand that caring for your elderly loved ones will be a difficult time for you. Our goals are to assist you in areas as needed, cut through the red tape, properly and knowledgeably counsel you on your legal requirements and reduce your stress. Our initial meeting is designed to allow you to ask questions and get to know us before you make the decision to hire us.
