Elder law is estate planning with a special focus on the unique needs of the elderly and disabled. In addition to customary estate planning, we can help you with your Elder Law needs, including:

  • Special needs trust
  • WisPACT trust
  • Adult guardianship
  • Adult protective placement
  • Medical Assistance (Medicaid) planning:
    • Asset and income eligibility
    • Optimizing unavailable and exempt assets
    • Maximizing resources for the community spouse
    • Divestment planning

At some point, most people who need long-term care need Medicaid (which is called Medical Assistance in Wisconsin) to help pay for it. In order to qualify for Medical Assistance, you must meet certain income and asset limits. At Ash Street Law, we work with you to help preserve assets and income for your family without jeopardizing your eligibility for needed benefits. Before going to law school, Attorney Nancy Thome worked for Dane County Human Services in Madison, Wisconsin, assisting families with applying for Medical Assistance . This gives her a unique perspective, having experienced the Medical Assistance eligibility process from the government side.
