Effective Legal Guidance To Protect Your Loved One

Elder law encompasses the important legal issues that must be addressed as we age. As we grow older, our needs change. Long-term care, public assistance benefits and medical conditions that diminish mental capacity are all things that become increasingly important to consider. Whether you are planning for yourself or need to protect a loved one, we can help.

At The Pilkington Law Firm, PLLC, in Tulsa, Oklahoma, we find solutions for the most complex problems. Lawyer Gilbert J. Pilkington, Jr.'s military background lends itself to a strategic approach that results in effective problem-solving. No matter what stage of life your loved one is in or what issue you are hoping to address, we can help you find the right solution.

If you established a plan to address these needs some time ago, it needs to be reviewed periodically. This review must consider changes in your life situation such as the unexpected loss of a spouse or a change in your health — not to mention changes in the law.

Finding The Right Solution For You

It is never easy to watch a loved one face the challenging obstacles that so often come with aging. However, we can help you through the important legal processes that will protect your loved one when he or she needs it most. Some aspects of elder law we can help you with are:

  • Seeking financial assistance for health care and nursing home expenses through Medicaid and veterans benefits
  • Using powers of attorney and other legal strategies to ensure that a loved one who has Alzheimer's or another form of dementia is protected
  • Establishing guardianships and conservatorships for individuals who can no longer make decisions on their own
  • Protecting an elderly person from nursing home abuse
