About Law Elder Law

You want to provide your family with the highest levels of safety. You wouldn’t allow your child or grandchild to drive a car without seatbelts or airbags!  When was the last time your retirement or estate plan went through a safety check?


Crash-test ads try to demonstrate a car’s level of safety. When it comes to our clients, their true-life experiences demonstrate the crash-worthiness of our legal solutions.  Over 4500 local client families have trusted us to protect them.  Our solutions are proven to keep you and your family safe in the toughest conditions.


You wouldn’t buy a car without a service plan, but you likely never imagined legal work with a service plan!  As changes occur in your life or in state and federal law, your plan may need an upgrade or update.


We provide these features with all of our retirement; estate and asset protection plans:

  • High-precision trust asset funding

  • Trustee training workshop to teach you how to operate your estate plan

  • Successor trustee workshop to help your future decision-makers know what to do

  • A free 3 year review

 

Old-school estate plans are merely death plans – they don’t do anything unless you’re dead. Our work is different: we work with you to provide benefits while you’re alive.


If you’re a pre-retiree or retiree who wants to have more tax-efficient retirement income or more tax-free money for your loved ones, then schedule your free initial meeting.  There is absolutely no cost for the initial vision meeting.


We look forward to being your trustworthy guide for estate, asset and retirement tax planning.

Diane Martin

I  have worked with Law Elder Law with two of my family members. My aunt whom had a substantial amount of assets and my mother who had barely any were both treated equally with the same respect, dedication and compassion regardless of how much money they had. This firm continues to be exemplary in so many ways even well after my mother’s and aunt’s legal work have been completed. I recently went to a dementia support group meeting and heard a very informative and compassionate presentation from Rick at Law Elder Law. The ripples are continuing out as they are accomplishing a wonderful mission for families with dementia-a God send. I have highly recommended Law Hesselbaum and will continue to do so in the future as I believe that the services they provide are invaluable.

When it’s hard to trust the system turn here… When we did not understand the public benefit maze, Rick Law and his team had many ways to help us learn, not just auditory, but with techniques to guide us, teach us. We felt empowered in a powerless situation.We learned to protect our loved ones, feel less helpless, grow instead of give up. Best of all, help others. If you need a Lawyer, you need Rick Law’s guidance.
