Insight is always better than hindsight.

Elder law concerns the legal, financial and health care issues of anyone over age 50 – not as “elder” as one would think. That’s because it pays to plan ahead and be proactive   – rather than reactive if a crisis arises.

For example, how long would your life savings last if you needed assisted living that cost $72,000 a year? Or a private room at a nursing home at $144,000 per year? Or even a home health aide at $22 per hour per day?

Your assets should go to the people you love. Kearns & Kearns will help you plan for that – with strategies that preserve your assets and public benefit opportunities, while avoiding penalties and taxes.

Exercise your options before time takes them away.
Not sure what all your options are? Don’t worry, we do. We’ve literally made it our business to know: Our attorneys are members of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys and Connecticut Bar Association’s Elder Law Section – affiliations not every attorney can claim. We’ve also earned numerous distinctions, awards and achievements since 1985.

Our holistic approach to helping you plan your future encompasses strategies that take maximum advantage of:

  • Long-term care insurance and other financially feasible long-term care options
  • Veterans Administration benefits
  • Medicaid
  • Private and community resources
  • Estate planning to protect assets
  • Special needs trusts
  • Living trusts
  • Housing opportunities
  • and more
