Elder Law

Elder Law is a conglomeration of traditional areas of law which are related to each other and concern seniors. Elder Law includes clients of all ages who have disabilities, life-threatening illnesses, or who need advice regarding government assistance or tax planning and families of such individuals. 

Estate Planning

Talking about death or the possibility that disease or an accident may leave you incapable of caring for yourself can be unnerving, but it should not keep you from being prepared.

There are a multitude of Wills, Trusts, and other estate planning tools.  Peggi has invested many years of study in estate planning so that she can benefit her clients.  Peggi analyzes each client’s situation, goals, needs and budget and then makes recommendations tailored specifically to that client – “one size does not fit all.” 

Planning for Persons with Disabilities

Disabled individuals who are medically or physically already qualified for 
government benefits (such as SSD, SSI, Medicaid and Medicare) can lose benefits if they receive assets or income, through inheritance or personal injury settlements. 

Peggi helps protect or reinstate disability benefits while benefiting her disabled clients with retention of their inheritance, or personal injury recovery. 

Medicaid Planning

Nursing homes are an expensive reality for many elderly and disabled individuals. 

Peggi helps clients and their families, depending on their specific facts and circumstances obtain Medicaid assistance without spending all of their assets by using special planning strategies. 

Estate Administration and Probate

Probate is a court supervised administration to transfer assets from the decedent to his beneficiaries under a Will.  Non probate administration does not require court supervision to transfer assets.  Examples of non-probate administration are assets passing under a Community Property Agreement, assets passing under a Trust, or assets passing according to beneficiary designations.

Peggi assists clients with the estate settlement process, either through the probate process or through non-probate processes. 


When an individual has significant problems managing his financial affairs or personal care, has not executed a Power of Attorney and lacks capacity to execute a Power of Attorney, a guardianship may be considered. 

Guardianships are generally allowed only when an individual has a mental incapacity causing a significant risk of harm.  This must be evidenced by a demonstrated inability to manage property or financial affairs, or a demonstrated inability to adequately provide or arrange for one's nutrition, health, housing or physical safety.  Age, medical diagnosis, eccentricity, or poverty alone is not enough to justify a guardianship. 

Peggi helps clients establish a guardianship to provide the day-to-day assistance that some incapacitated individuals need. Vested with control over various aspects of the incapacitated individual’s life, clients can maximize the incapacitated individual’s quality of life through a support network of qualified professionals, friends and family. 

Elder Abuse

The National Center on Elder Abuse estimates that there may be as high as 5 million cases of financial abuse annually in the USA.  Peggi helps stop the abuse, helps stop the depletion of assets and helps provide a long-term solution to stop the contact between the abuser and the abused.
