Elder Law

elderlySenior citizens and their adult children face a complex set of legal issues ranging from protecting savings from Medicaid costs to petitioning a court to have a guardian appointed over an elderly and incapacitated adult. Proden & O'Brien provides a full spectrum of services for the elderly, for disabled adults, and for families. Our firm understands that families have unique concerns and require personalized solutions.

Crises can devastate an elderly person's assets and estate. Solving the problems as they arise is essential to preserving the estate. Planning to try to prevent problems and avert crises is a safer route to preserving assets than fighting fires as they come.

The firm's attorneys can help clients with a wide range of elder law issues
