Our Law Firm provides quality legal services based on decades of experience focused on Elder Law and Estate Planning.
The issues of Elder Law include, but are not limited to, Long Term Care planning, such as nursing home and assistive/assisted living placement and "aging in place" which is the overwhelming preference of most families. Elder Law further deals with financial planning to accomplish your goals with the use Medicaid, Long Term Care Insurance, and other resources and benefits available to those over 65.
The Estate Planning process includes the preparation of Wills, Trusts, Financial Durable Powers of Attorney, and Living Wills/Advanced Medical Directives. We have a Notary onsite so that proper execution of estate plans can take place timely and in accordance with statutory requirements.
Without the proper Elder and Estate planning, a Guardianship proceeding may be necessary. We are experienced in all phases of the litigation wherein the court orders the appointment of a guardian. Between 2011 and 2014, Attorney Ferrino served as Solicitor for Montgomery County Office of Aging and Adult Services (MCAAS) which is often called upon when protective services are needed for an elderly individual who has no network or support in place and no one to act as that person's agent under a Power of Attorney.
Upon the death of a loved one, our experience will guide you through the Estate Administration also known as the probate process by addressing all the estate requirements at the Register of Wills including Inheritance tax filings.
Additional Elder Law and Estate Planning cases include Fiduciary Litigation, Real Estate Transactions and Veteran's Benefits.
Mary E. Podlogar is an Accredited Attorney for the preparation, presentation, and prosecution of claims for Veterans benefits before the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).
Our law practice emphasizes family involvement. We encourage all interested family members to participate. In order to accomplish your elder and estate planning needs, we are available for home, hospital or nursing home visits. We also have some limited evening hours by appointment when your matter is urgent.
