Our Focus

Aler Stallings

Some legal firms try to do it all. But, as the old saying goes, a jack of all trades is a master of none. Here at AlerStallings, we focus our legal services on four main areas: asset protection planning, nursing home navigation, estate planning and probate & estate administration. By keeping our focus on these areas, we’ve created a legal team of experienced professionals with a detailed, in-depth understanding of elder care law and estate planning. If you’re in need of legal advice in the following areas, you’ve come to the right place.

Asset Protection Planning

Long-term care costs, not probate, not taxes, are the largest risk to our clients.  At $10,000 a month and rising, a nursing home stay can quickly bankrupt a family.  If you are nearing, or in retirement, you should be considering your protection plan.  Our law firm utilizes a variety of unique and customized asset protection trusts to shield each client’s assets from these excessive nursing home costs.  If you want to learn more about how to protect your assets from long-term care costs by using asset protection trusts, our attorneys can certainly help.

Nursing Home Navigation

Over 70% of seniors will have a long-term care event, and almost nobody has any idea where to start. Our team is here to help navigate these stressful and complicated situations… whether it’s helping a family determine if home care, assisted living or nursing home is the right level of care.  By protecting a home, farm, IRA or other assets from the excessive costs of long-term care.  Or handling the filling of a Medicaid or Veteran Benefit’s application. We’re here to make certain you have experienced professionals by your side.

Estate Planning

Estate Planning is for everyone.  What legal documents you need depends on where you are in life.  It also depends on what assets you want to protect from probate, taxes and long-term care.  New parents should be considering the care and support of their kids.   A blended family needs to address where the assets go at the passing of the first spouse if both have kids from previous marriages.   Retirees should be thinking about tax planning for their IRA. And every adult needs at least a basic will and powers of attorney so the state doesn’t decide what happens.  Our attorneys can help you with all these estate planning questions to build a plan customized for you.

Probate and Estate Administration

When a loved one passes it is an extremely difficult and emotional time for the family.  Understanding what needs done regarding probate, trust, creditors, taxes, and when and how to distribute the assets is overwhelming. Our dedicated probate and estate administration team is here to help you with resolving these issues in a timely manner.

Whether you need an estate planning attorney to start building your plan or an elder care law attorney to help a loved one during a long-term care crisis, AlerStallings is here for you.
