Woods Law Office
At Woods Law Office, we counsel clients on planning for the elder years, which is known as life planning. Many of our clients will have an increased need for medical, nursing, or attendant care services in the immediate future, for either themselves, a spouse, or a parent. We also have clients that plan for the future and want to put in place a strategy that will outline their financial stability and legal authorizations so that their wishes will be prominent. Many of our new clients are surprised to learn that their existing estate plans are limited to the avoidance of Michigan probate and may only hinder their needs and wishes for life planning. Others unknowingly possess inadequate or often voided Designation of Patient Advocates or Power of Attorneys.
Areas of Practice
Our Elder Law Practice
Our priority is to educate and arm our clients with the information and legal advice they need to tackle the never-ending web of obstacles that are often encountered by families throughout the duration of their lives. We pride ourselves on being your counsel for life. Ideally, planning for long-term care and the disposition of an estate occurs before the need arises. However, the majority of our clients come to us when a loved one is already in the hospital or nursing home.
