Largo Elder Law Attorney

Older Florida residents often require advice on legal topics unique to their situation. For example, if you live in Pinellas County and are thinking about moving into a nursing home, you may need an attorney who can assist you in applying for Medicaid. Or perhaps you are simply looking to review and revise your estate plan as you approach retirement age.

Whatever your legal needs, it helps to know that you can talk to a Largo Elder law attorney who does not just practice elder law but who specializes in the subject. William Rambaum is a Florida Bar Board Certified Elder Law Specialist who has spent more than 35 years helping clients address their legal needs as they age. If you have a legal problem, question, or concern, his office can take the time to listen and assist you in finding the right solution.

We Offer a Full Range of Florida Elder Law Services

The primary goal of an elder law attorney is to address the unique legal needs of people who are 65 and older. Some of the needs that our office helps clients with include:

  • Estate Planning: An estate plan allows you to establish how you want your personal and financial affairs managed in the future when you are no longer able to direct them yourself. A comprehensive estate plan includes not just a will, but also a power of attorney, advance directives for healthcare, and in many cases a trust.
  • Guardianship: In some cases, an adult deemed legally incapacitated by the courts may need a guardian to manage their finances and/or personal care. In these delicate situations, both the potential guardian and the potential ward (the incapacitated adult) need legal representation.
  • Probate: After a person has died, their estate is managed through Florida’s probate process. This often requires a court-supervised administration of the personal representative, who can benefit from the assistance of an experienced attorney.
  • Medicaid: Medicaid is a partnership between the federal government and the State of Florida that provides healthcare and other benefits to low-income seniors. Our office assists Pinellas County residents in applying for Medicaid and helping them to meet the program’s strict financial eligibility requirements.
  • Nursing Home Planning: Full-time nursing home care in Florida can cost tens of thousands of dollars per year. Without careful advanced planning, many Pinellas County seniors may find themselves facing a sudden financial crisis when the time comes to relocate to such facilities.
  • Asset Protection: Whether you are looking to shield assets from creditors or implement a strategy to reduce what you own to qualify for Medicaid, our attorney can explain your options when it comes to asset protection under Florida law.
