Elder Law

Elder law is an emerging field that addresses legal issues and challenges that are unique to aging populations, persons with disabilities, and their families. It includes essential elements of estate planning, but it is said to encompass more holistic "life planning" as well, including:

  • Medicaid planning as it relates to the funding of long-term care and assisted living
  • Placement in nursing home care
  • Your loved ones' physical safety
  • The prevention of exploitation, neglect, and abuse
  • Guardianship of persons and estates
  • Medical directives or health care powers of attorney
  • Critical financial issues

Providing Protection | Preventing Problems | Covering All The Bases

At the office of Dorothea J. Kingsbury Attorney at Law, I help families protect their loved ones and prevent problems, developing thorough plans that deal with every relevant area. I advise and represent:

  • Individuals outside the Cleveland area with loved ones in northern Ohio
  • Adults who want to make sure their parents, grandparents, and elderly relatives are as healthy and happy as possible
  • People who have been appointed guardians for their loved ones
  • Clients with long-term care planning needs
  • Families from many backgrounds who desire guidance regarding their estate plans

As a Cleveland elder law attorney, I understand how Ohio law applies to my clients' concerns. I can assist you in confronting the issues you and your family may be worried about.
