Estate planning has the primary goal of the disposition of the decedent's personal and/or business assets to the devisee, heir or beneficiary in a timely and cost effective manner. Often State and Federal taxes and administrative costs of probate can erode the estate's value, if proper planning is not considered. The use of revocable and irrevocable trusts, and special needs trusts are valuable in passing the greatest amount possible to heirs of the decedent.
Mr. Davis will gladly visit with you in your home or other environment to assist you in the event you are unable to travel to him.

Elder Law/Guardianship/Conservatorship

Elder Law not only deals with estate planning and probate, but can involve patient advocacy, guardianship, conservatorship, Medicaid and Medicare planning.

Many elderly people today are unaware of their rights and how to advocate when in a hospital or nursing home (assisted living) environment. Often the elderly are without family members at this critical time of their life and need legal counsel to incorporate state and federal safeguards for patient rights when in a medical facility.

Additionally, when family members are at risk and need court intervention by an appointed guardian or conservator to protect them, no matter what their age, court proceedings may be needed.

The S.S. Davis Law Firm has the experience to serve you.
