York Elder Estate Planning Attorney

If you are over 55, you are probably also nervous about health care. Gone are the days of golden pensions that paid a worker's medical expenses from retirement to the grave. These days, people working longer retain their health benefits longer, so they can put off the day when they have to pay for it out of pocket.

At the David J. Lenox law office, our legal team has helped many people in York, Hampden and surrounding areas to plan for their later lives using the tools provided by elder law in Pennsylvania. Our founding attorney, David J. Lenox, has more than 35 years of experience as a lawyer in the local community. He understands your estate planning needs and how to fulfill them.

Preparing For The Long Term

As much as all of us would like to believe otherwise, incapacity and death operate on their own timetables. Because of this, we urge our clients to establish estate plans as soon as possible. Whether you are a parent in mid-career, or a retiree with an empty nest, our law office can talk you through all of the basics of estate planning and set up the components necessary to your financial and personal goals, including:

  • Wills to determine how your assets will be distributed after your death.
  • Trusts to protect money for specific purposes, such as nursing home care for an incapacitated spouse or loved one, or a charitable cause. We can help you to create and maintain any life insurance trusts, special needs trust or other trust vehicle.
  • Powers of attorney to assign specific duties to chosen individuals in your stead, including paying your bills or making health care decisions if you are no longer able to do so.
  • Living wills to place limits on your end-of-life health care, if desired.
  • Business succession planning to transform a family business into an LLC, LLP or other business vehicle so that you can protect your personal property from business liabilities.
  • Tax planning to protect your assets from unnecessary taxation. We advise and assist clients in matters of state, federal probate, personal and corporate tax planning.
  • Medicaid planning/health care planning to shield your lifetime assets from being consumed by nursing home expenses.

Planning In A Pinch

We frequently help clients who have become ill suddenly and need emergency help to prepare for long-term nursing care. We also see many clients whose seemingly healthy loved ones died or became incapacitated suddenly, without providing a will or much other estate planning groundwork.
