Consult with H.E.L.P.’s Community Specialist or Elder Law Attorney

H.E.L.P. offers private consultations with our Community Specialist who assist older adults, their families, and caregivers in examining possible legal options and planning tools (e.g., care planning, probate avoidance and property transfers), and estate administration (e.g., providing proper notices, distributing estate assets and paying remaining debts when a loved-one has passed).

Depending on the circumstance, and if available, we can provide a consultation with a volunteer elder law attorney. Although there is no charge for this consultation, H.E.L.P. invites tax-deductible donations (suggested donation $25.00).
