Providing Solutions For Your Elder Care Needs

The attorneys at The Flanigan Law Group, in Irvine, California, provide solutions and strategies for protecting yourself and your family financially through the aging process. As many individuals age, they become increasingly reliant on others for care. There is no shortage of services and organizations seeking to offer that care. Not all of these organizations, however, are legitimate.

Our lawyers provide elder law representation to families whose loved ones are being or have been exploited by manipulative caregivers and those trying to take advantage of an elderly person's wealth. It is not uncommon for strangers to approach an elderly person, offering caregiving services and building manipulative relationships with the person. We also assist in establishing guardianships and conservatorships that designate an individual as a caregiver or decision-maker to an elderly person after that person is no longer equipped to make decisions on his or her own.

Protecting The Elderly From "Secret Marriages"

The state of California allows "secret marriages" or marriages that are largely off-the-record. This gives such individuals room to legally enter the elderly person's life, and have access to their wealth and estate.

We aggressively act on your behalf to put a stop to such activity, working with law enforcement when necessary, to ensure that your loved one is protected.

Helping You Plan For Unexpected Incapacity

Our attorneys will guide you through your options in establishing powers of attorney, and health care directives to ensure that your wishes are carried out should you become incapacitated. Powers of attorney are designed to designate a particular person to handle financial decisions and a particular person to handle medical decisions in such situations. Health care directives allow you to specifically outline your wishes for medical care and end-of-life decisions. These vehicles provide peace of mind and assurance.
