Practice Area Elder Law

Americans are now living longer than ever before, which is great news. However, many of us will eventually need long-term care at some point and this care is expensive. This explains why elder law is an increasingly important area of the law. It incorporates a wide range of practice areas, including long-term care planning, Medicaid planning, asset protection, estate planning, Veterans benefits planning, and more. Ozark Law Firm, LLC has extensive experience in all of these areas and is committed to helping seniors and the people who love them cope with the many challenges that come with growing older.

One of the most important aspects of elder law is helping seniors pay for expensive long-term care. Not to shock you, but the following statistics speak volumes:

What We Do

What We Do | Medicaid Asset Planning


Medicaid is a State and Federal Government program that pays for certain health services and nursing home care for older people with low incomes and limited assets.

What We Do | Estate Planning


Some people believe that estate planning is only for “wealthy” folks, but virtually everyone can benefit from having an estate plan.

What We Do | Estate, Probate & Trust Admin


Probate is a court-supervised proceeding wherein a person’s assets are retitled and distributed after death.

What We Do | Veterans Benefits


Every year countless veterans and their families become eligible for benefits, but fail to receive them.
