At Gudorf Law Group, we work with seniors and their families to safeguard their future. We can help make your future secure and protect the assets you and your family have worked a lifetime to accumulate. What is long term care? Too many Ohio seniors do not realize the importance of having a good lawyer on their side in planning their futures. At Gudorf Law Group, we handle every legal issue affecting the lives of seniors and their families. Here are some of the ways we can use elder law to benefit you:
- Protect assets from a nursing home
- Qualify for Ohio Medicaid benefits
- Draft a will or estate plan
- Prepare a living trust
- Open and administer an estate

Our elder law attorneys can show you how to help you or your family save hundreds of thousands of dollars through Medicaid planning, estate planning, or a combination of these methods. Even if your loved one is already in a nursing home, we can find ways to help you save. With the average annual cost of nursing home care climbing to $70,000 in 2008 (source: MetLife Market Survey of Nursing Home & Assisted Living Costs), saving is critical to ensure your loved one is able to afford a high level of care.
Our Attorneys Will Help You Make Informed Decisions About Long Term Care
We work hard to inform our clients of the facts surrounding senior issues, at the same time dispelling common myths and misinformation. You need to not be intimidated by the system. We will show you how to use Ohio Medicaid benefits to your advantage.
There is no reason to exhaust a lifetime of savings to get nursing home care! Typically, you do not have to wait five years after making a gift or transfer to qualify for Medicaid benefits nor must you give up your home. Under Ohio elder law, there are many options for protecting your assets -even if you or your loved one is already in a nursing home.
Our elder law attorneys insist on providing caring, personal service as we help you understand and make use of elder law. When we take on your case, we promise to guide and protect your family as if it were our own. Your interests are our first concern, and we are here to help you.
