Elder Law

Omaha ELDER LAW & ASSET PROTECTION Planning Attorneys

When Age Leads to Vulnerability, We Are Here to Protect You & Your Assets

When people hear the term “Elder Law,” they are most likely to think of Estate Planning, which refers to the preparation of documents specifying how a person’s assets are to be distributed after their death. “Elder Law” does include estate planning, but also extends beyond that to encompass other areas of importance to seniors and their families.

For instance, our Elder Law attorneys assist our clients and their families with planning and applying for programs such as Medicaid, Veterans’ Benefits, and Social Security Disability. At Burnett Legal Group, our Elder Law attorneys also assist clients with situations involving long-term care facilities, such as billing disputes, discharge planning, or policies related to how residents are treated. Given that two-thirds of seniors will require nursing home care at an average cost of $6,300.00 a month, understanding the benefits available and achieving eligibility to receive them can be one of the most important services our Elder Law attorneys provide.
