As an elder law attorney, I often work with families facing a crisis. It can be heartbreaking for a spouse to have to place their husband or wife in a nursing home. I feel a great responsibility sharing these moments with my clients, and I take care to clearly explain the law so they understand their rights and feel comfortable that they have all the information they need to make the best decision for their family.
