Elder Law

Having served the Pinellas County area in multiple areas of elder law for more than a combined 50 years, we have built a reputation for legal skill and compassion for each person with whom we work.

Elder Law can involve multiple areas of concern: from handling Medicaid applications and plans; to setting up trusts, estate plans, living wills, and last wills and testaments; to appointing power of attorney, health care surrogates and guardians. It can also mean resolving family disputes regarding care, or estates. For families seeking constructive solutions, we can help assign guardians and legally administer power of attorney, estates, and trusts and health care surrogates.

We regularly work with social workers, professional guardians, and geriatric care managers to ensure that proper provisions are made for our clients.

If you have questions about any aspect of elder law, or you require legal services to help resolve a dispute concerning an elderly parent, please contact the Clearwater, FL law offices of Thompson & Fernald.  Call 727 447-2290 or contact us to arrange a consultation.
