At Hajosy Law, our practice focuses on advising older clients and their families, and clients with special needs, regarding their estate planning options, including asset preservation and obtaining public benefits, when needed. We will work with you every step of the way to make sure that you understand the choices you are making and feel empowered to make them.
Aging in place is a dominant choice of her older and special needs clients, so we work hard to make sure they have the resources available to make this choice. Helping our clients maintain autonomy and dignity are the cornerstones of our estate and elder law practice.
