Elder Law

Special consideration and planning strategies are necessary when dealing with the important financial and estate planning matters that confront older adults.  In addition to the estate planning concerns and financial decisions that must be addressed by all adults, older adults and their adult children must often consider additional issues, such as those related to health care, long term care planning, and wealth protection, as well as the day-to-day issues that affect their daily life, such as assisted living and lifetime planning,

Riker Danzig’s Elder Law attorneys understand the intricacies of the issues affecting older adults.  Our Elder Law clients benefit from attorneys who know the health care world from the inside as well as the outside.  The head of our group, Michael LaMagna, is a licensed Nursing Home Administrator and has managed a number of health care facilities, including assisted living centers, nursing homes and independent housing centers.  His hands-on experience in facilitating the actual care of seniors is invaluable in his practice of law, where he is helping seniors create long term care plans and identify the right options for them.
