LAW PRACTICE

ELDERLAW

includes all those aspects of legal planning to enhance the quality of life of the older person. It includes client education of community resources, advocacy to enable access to health and social services, financial planning in the form of durable powers of attorney, guardianships, wills and trusts, long term care planning, and estate planning, and health proxys.

 

TRUSTS AND ESTATES traditionally plans for passing wealth, even a modest estate on to the next generation or other beneficiaries. Elder Law focuses on the life of the elder person. There is a need to balance handing over one's esate and minimizing estate taxes with the needs of the individual during his or her lifetime.

 

HEALTH LAW focuses on consumer needs to access medical care and to have claims paid by insurance companies and managed care organizations. Proper health planning also includes the appointment of an agent to communicate one's wishes for medical treatment and a living will to specify one's wishes in detail and in writing..NewYork law requires that wishes to withhold artificial hydration and nutrition be put into writing (clear and convincing evidence). The practice also handles Medicaid Fair Hearings related to eligibility and access to home health care services.

The LAW PRACTICE also includes residential real estate transactions, matrimonial and family law, wills and probate, guardianships, social security disability law, Medicaid law, and other aspects of a general practice. Mr. Goodwin is also fluent in Spanish. Para mandar un mensaje en espanol al Senor Goodwin, activar el programa de e-mail ahora mismo.
