Elder Law

Elder Law is devoted to the needs of a particular age group as opposed to a particular area of law.  Though not all older persons perceive themselves as elderly, many of them have similar needs.  As an Elder Law attorney, Gus Bernard is knowledgeable in many areas of the law, including guardianships, long-term care planning, advance health care directives, powers of attorney, estate planning, probate and trust administration, asset protection, special needs trusts and planning, and elder abuse.  Mr. Bernard takes a comprehensive approach to addressing your concerns by focusing on the problem to be solved and not one particular area of law.

Why might you need an Elder Law attorney?  If you are concerned about planning for a time when you might not be able to make decisions on your own, Mr. Bernard can explain the various options that are available to make sure your wishes are carried out in the event you become incapacitated.

Also, Mr. Bernard offers personal service where and when you need it.  Mr. Bernard knows it’s not always possible for you to visit his office.  Mr. Bernard will drive to your location (whether at home, hospital or elsewhere) even after hours.  And, depending on the particular matter, he may provide this service at no extra charge.  He’s here for you!
