Dependent Adult and Elder Law

The Law Offices of Angela L. Gilmartin is dedicated to protecting the rights of dependent adults and the elderly population. We believe that every person should be treated with dignity and respect, especially as they age and face the challenges often encountered such as medical illness and disability.

Effectively serving the disabled and elderly requires special knowledge of the law to ensure that financially sound decisions can be made without comprising an individual's health concerns, maximum independence and right to dignity. Notwithstanding an individual's age or disability, we recognize that each person and family is unique therefore can apprise clients regarding the appropriateness of a variety of specialized laws and tools, including Special Needs Trusts; asset protection from nursing home and long term care costs; living wills; powers of attorney; health care directives; probate and trust administration; and limited, general and mental health conservatorship.
