Trusted Elder Law Attorneys

At Goldfarb & Luu, we understand the emotional, familial, medical and legal realities of aging. These concerns are addressed through elder law. Navigating these concerns and finding solutions to them can be difficult and overwhelming. You are not alone – our Tarzana elder law attorneys will compassionately explain the planning options available to you and provide personal suggestions for you and your family.

What is Elder Law

Traditional estate planning transitions to elder law when adult children (or other family and friends) begin caring for their aging parents or family members. Elder law includes creating or updating or untangling estate plans, establishing conservatorships, planning for Medi-Cal and VA Aid and Attendance benefits, preventing elder abuse, long-term care planning and providing counseling to families about aging.

Elder Law is Not Just for the Elderly

Enjoying the company of our loved ones as they age can be a tremendous blessing. At the same time, when adult children become caregivers, it can become exceedingly challenging to balance the needs of an aging parent or family member while respecting their dignity, best interests and wishes. Our elder law services help and guide you through these potentially difficult considerations. Many elder law issues can be prevented by having a comprehensive and up-to-date estate plan and getting compassionate counseling for you and your family.

Expert Knowledge Is Important for Your Peace of Mind

Our elder law services also include connecting you with a myriad of experts who are often needed when caring for a loved one. We have carefully vetted our team of experts and would use each one of them personally. These include placement specialists for assisted living communities, doctors, skilled nursing and residential homes, caregiver companies, financial advisors, bookkeepers, funeral directors, death doulas and other end of life professionals and decluttering and real estate experts. Whatever the issues may be, at Goldfarb & Luu, we are patient listeners and work hard to find reality-based solutions.
