We believe your attorney should not speak in legalese

Finding an attorney who is a “real person” can be difficult. Many attorneys surround themselves almost exclusively with other attorneys and are accustomed to speaking in ivory tower legalese.  You should be able to connect with your attorney on a personal level, and he or she should speak to you in plain language that you can understand.  You will be working very closely with this person on issues that are very important to you. It is important that he or she be down-to-earth and someone that you connect with.

We believe your attorney should be accessible

The most common complaint that clients have of their attorneys is that the attorney is unreachable, does not communicate with them regularly, or does not promptly return your calls.  Your attorney should reach out to you about your case regularly and respond within 24 hours to calls and e-mails.  An open line of communication between you and your attorney is essential to building trust.

We believe your attorney should be realistic with you about costs and outcomes

Your attorney’s goal should not be to win at all costs.  Rather, it should be to achieve a favorable outcome for you as efficiently as possible.  It is important that your attorney set realistic expectations at the outset as to the costs you should expect, the concerns that the attorney has about the outcome of your case, and the length of time that you should expect your case to take.

Regardless of the nature of your case, we have an experienced attorney who will focus on your individual needs. Our team of attorneys works closely together, bringing each of their different fields of experience to bear in order to optimize our client care.

Medicaid Planning In Tinley Park, Illinois

In this article, our Tinley Park Medicaid attorneys discuss life estate deeds and irrevocable trusts.  Their use allows yourself to be eligible for Medicaid assistance with long-term care without drawing down your assets.  We also discuss irrevocable trusts and how they are used to prevent Medicaid from seizing assets upon your death if Medicaid pays for your long-term care.  Since Medicaid requires your assets to be spent to be eligible for long term care assistance, this information can be invaluable to protect assets for your loved ones.  The Medicaid 5-Year Look Back Period is explained, which delays eligibility for Medicaid when you transfer certain assets to your family members.  We compare life estate deeds and revocable living trusts as Medicaid planning tools and ensure you know the choices that are right for you and your loved ones.

Tinley Park Medicaid Planning: Allowable Transfers Within The 5 Year Look Back Period

Our Tinley Park elder law attorneys discuss transfers that don't incur Medicaid penalties.  Transfers for less than market value won't result in a Medicaid penalty if they occur within Medicaid's 5 year look back period.  Transfers include those to a spouse or trust that benefits an individual with a disability.  Different rules are discussed for transferring your residence, including transfers to a child that is under 21 or a "caretaker child."  Knowledge about transfers and rules that govern them helps you maneuver through the regulations of Medicaid when making financial decisions.
