Are you faced with moving an elderly parent or spouse into a Utah nursing home? With monthly costs of $6,000 – $7,000 you are probably overwhelmed. Your loved one worked hard all their life and is now facing expenses that can wipe out their money in months! Nursing home expenses destroy life savings. Will there be anything left for the spouse living at home or to pass on to the children?
For the great majority of those entering a nursing home for long term care – Medicaid is the answer. Don’t give up on it. It’s a very valuable government benefit that every person can receive – if you know how to qualify by meeting the Utah Medicaid eligibility rules. You don’t need to be poor, indigent or on welfare to qualify. However, the eligibility rules and the Utah Medicaid application are complicated and confusing – and finding someone who can explain exactly what options apply – is like finding a needle in a haystack!
If you’ve been surfing around, you have probably discovered the massive amount of attorney web sites filled with legalistic articles, blogs, and faq’s trying to explain the law. It’s probably made you even more confused and frustrated. I don’t have that kind of information on my site, and if that’s your quest, I hope it goes well for you – there is a lot of information out there. However, if you aren’t trying to get your JD or become a Medicaid expert – and just need someone you can talk to help solve your concerns and issues, then you found me.
I am one of the very few Elder Law attorneys in the state of Utah who has dedicated his practice to long term care Medicaid applications and asset protection strategies. I work in the “Medicaid trenches” every day. For me, it’s not just a side line practice area offered from a laundry list of attorney services. I specialize in this area.
I work with Medicaid and nursing homes to secure payment for the care you need. There are little-used laws that can help regular folks get the best care available without sacrificing their life’s work. I have helped many clients save hard earned assets for their spouse and then for their children. I am able to do this by knowing and using completely legitimate and government approved strategies to get your loved one qualified for Medicaid.
The situation you are facing right now is something you need help with. You really need to talk to someone who can explain what your options are based on your exact circumstances. Don’t spend any more money on nursing home bills until you talk to me.
Give Me a Call – I’m Easy To Talk To. I know some people are intimidated about calling a Lawyer – but I’m easy to talk to. When you call, I will be answering. I honestly believe you will feel much better after visiting with me (and there’s no charge for the call). I can usually tell you right over the phone what your options are and how and if you can qualify for Medicaid and keep as many of your assets as possible.
Please, don’t rely on “someone’s” advice until you talk to me. I know planning strategies that work in Utah that other elder Law attorneys, estate planning attorneys and so called Utah senior planning advisors know little about. I’ve met many people who failed to get the right advice – and ended up paying a lot more than they needed to – because they relied on the wrong information.
My performance record is excellent – some would even say magical. But I don’t do magic. I just take what the law gives and apply it for my clients benefit – always making sure it’s done in strict accordance with the law and highest possible moral and ethical standards.
This site isn’t one of those fancy all singing all dancing Attorney web sites cluttered with videos, jpegs, moving banners, chats, blogs, Facebook, Instagram’s, gee whizzers or flying walindas stuffed with information and links that attempt to explain the intricacies of the Medicaid laws, rules and regulations. The clients I work with are regular folks who are in the midst of a medical crisis. They aren’t looking for some prestigious law firm in a big office with lots of overhead. They are looking for straight answers from a knowledgeable, trustworthy “blue collar” attorney who can take over the confusing and complicated Medicaid burden so they can concentrate on giving their family member the love and care they need at this time in their life.
|I believe we live in a wonderful state and I enjoy working with clients who share common beliefs, attitudes and care towards their families and loved ones|
