Getting Help with Elder Law

The legal issues surrounding the aging process can be exhausting, but some things must be resolved for one’s family and loved ones. There are numerous issues that make arranging your affairs more difficult or, at the very least, confusing. However, finding help with elder law does not have to be difficult in the Chicago area. The attorneys of Peck Ritchey, LLC help aging residents and their families with all aspects of elder law, guiding them through their potential decisions and options for settlement.

Important Legal Issues

Depending on an elderly person’s exact needs and circumstances, the legal issues he or she runs into will vary. Despite this, there are several aspects of elder law that routinely occur during this time of life, including:

  • Health care planning
  • End-of-life issues
  • Estate planning
  • Long-term care planning
  • Estate administration
  • Guardianship issues

These are all aspects of elder law that could pose difficulty for someone who is trying to get his or her affairs in order so that loved ones are taken care of. All of this planning does not need to be done by you alone; enlisting assistance is a smart first step.

I solicited Peck Ritchey, LLC for assistance with a living trust for which I became the beneficiary. I needed assistance with understanding the details of how it all worked. However, I was especially concerned because there were threats of allegations made by family members and a lawsuit was filed against me. I needed a solid professional who had my best interests in mind. Peter Brady took my case and he managed it flawlessly. He explained everything in a way I could understand, he knew the law inside and out, he was always available to answer questions, and even offer support when things seemed like they could become extremely problematic. In addition to this, he had a plan. He navigated the course as if he already knew the next move by the opposing attorney. He made me feel like everything was in control and that’s because he knew exactly what he was doing and he consulted with me about everything. We ended up settling out of court and ultimately the court officially dismissed the lawsuit. I honestly believe if it wasn’t for Peter and his expertise this could have gone in an entirely different direction. Peter did a stellar job and I couldn’t be more pleased and impressed with his performance.
