A Compassionate Attorney Serving The Unique Legal Needs Of Seniors

There’s more to aging than just changes to your body and mental capacity. As time passes, you’ll encounter more and more unique legal needs that you might not have considered before. How will you secure long-term care? Who will make decisions on your behalf if you’re incapacitated? Who will take care of your loved ones when something happens to you?

I’m Mary Beth Kelly – an elder law lawyer with over 14 years of experience based in Lake Mary. If you have certain elder law needs, I can provide compassionate guidance and personalized solutions to help you and your family during important life transitions.

At The Law Office of Mary Beth Kelly, LLC, your family is our purpose.

I Can Assist You With Your Elder Law Concerns

I primarily assist clients with the following elder care law concerns:

Long-term care Medicaid planning

The costs of long-term elder care, such as nursing homes or in-home care, can quickly deplete your life savings. Proper planning is essential to qualifying for Medicaid benefits while protecting your hard-earned assets. I can guide you through the complex Medicaid rules and develop a tailored plan to cover your long-term care needs while preserving your legacy.

Guardianships

If you have a loved one who becomes incapacitated and unable to make their own decisions, you may be able to file for a guardianship arrangement. As your advocate, I can walk you through the guardianship process, from drafting and filing a petition to representing you in the hearing over your loved one’s incapacity.

Advance Directives And Power Of Attorney

Taking preventative measures in the event of your incapacitation can provide your family immense peace of mind. I can help you draft personalized advance directives such as living wills and health care surrogate designations. I also prepare durable powers of attorney to ensure your wishes about your assets are fulfilled.
