Murfreesboro Elder Law Attorney

Legal Issues Facing the Elderly of Rutherford County

If you are looking to help an elderly loved one with their legal matters or need help regarding planning for your own future, you should talk to the LaRoche Law Office. We could help you through the various different areas of elder law, including estate planning, nursing home care, and advance healthcare directives. Although no one wants to think about their life coming to an end, it is still important to have your affairs in order so that you can have peace of mind knowing that your loved ones will be taken care of and your wishes carried out. Should you choose to work with my team, you will be able to have peace of mind knowing that you will be receiving one-on-one attention from an attorney that truly cares about you. Since I am a solo practitioner, you will not be passed off to an associate who does not know your specific case.

Advance Healthcare Directives

One important aspect of elder law is advance healthcare directives. According to the Tennessee Department of Health, people have the right to make decisions regarding their health. The reason that healthcare directives are so important is because it allows individuals to decide about their healthcare now in case they are unable to do so later. For example, if for some reason you are unconscious or in some other way unable to make decisions regarding your health, the doctors will look at your healthcare directive in order to determine what to do. You will also be able to appoint a healthcare agent who will be able to make sure your wishes are followed and make decisions on your behalf when necessary.

Estate Planning

Another huge area of elder law is estate planning. Regardless of the size of your estate, it is important to have a plan in place for the distribution of your assets. A will or trust is a good option when determining how to divide your estate and it could help ensure that your estate does not go into probate. Not only that, but it could cut down on hassle and possible conflict for your family and loved ones. You will have the opportunity to choose an executor who will have the responsibility of administrating your estate. They will manage your property until such a time as they can divide it between the beneficiaries and will pay and bills or taxes on your estate. If you have more questions regarding elder law and whether you need an attorney, please do not hesitate to contact my team. I have been named as Murfreesboro's Best Attorney and have been practicing elder law for six years. Call at any time to schedule a consultation with my office!
