What Does an Elder Law Lawyer Do?
An elder law attorney is a multitalented resource for older Seminole residents. Our HKH Elder Law professionals enthusiastically help our clients with all of the legal needs associated with growing older as they come up in your life. Some of the major decisions we help you contemplate and plan for are:
- Advance health planning and medical directives
- Social Security
- Asset protection
- Long-term care
No matter the challenge that arises, one of our attorneys will be by your side to help you overcome it in a way that’s best for you and your family.
Reasons to Plan for Long-Term Care Issues in Advance
The most significant reason to plan for your long-term care in advance is to preserve your right to determine the future you want for yourself. Additionally, legal fees are minimized, assets are preserved, and family could be spared of emotional hardship and the worry of choosing the care they think you’d prefer, while it could be completely different from what you’ve always imagined.
With the help of our attorneys, we can listen to what an ideal future looks like for you. With your vision in mind, we’ll inform you of the options that can make that a reality, and help you pursue it.
As you age, you may find it increasingly difficult to perform all the tasks necessary to maintain your own home. At that point, many seniors explore other housing options. A popular choice is a nursing home.
Medicaid provides financial assistance for Americans to pay for otherwise expensive nursing home costs. To qualify, the applicant must demonstrate some financial need. By calling one of HKH Elder Law’s elder law attorneys, you can plan to redistribute assets, therefore maintaining your financial legacy, while making yourself eligible for Medicaid.
By seeking out the help of an elder law lawyer well before you need Medicaid, you can ensure that the financial assistance will be there when you need it. Planning in advance protects you, your assets, and the legacy you pass on to your loved ones.
Contact our Seminole elder law attorneys for information on creating a personalized Medicaid plan.

She and her entire team truly care about their clients.- Chelsie L.
As a family member who has provided support for seven family members as they moved through the continuum of being healthy and independent to requiring end-of-life care, I can heartily recommend the Hill and Kinsella Law Firm. I was referred to April Hill by my own stellar estate planning attorney when I needed assistance with my parents in the Tampa Bay area. I couldn't be more pleased with the entire process for creating updated documents to the execution of those documents to follow-up counsel in applying the documents. If you are considering an attorney/firm to help you with this part of your life or are a family member who needs guidance, call Hill and Kinsella. They will make things clear and simple for you.- Tracy S.
April rescued me with helping my mother transition into an assisted living facility plus deal with an unruly family member. April's knowledge, professionalism along with her warm and caring understanding of the emotions involved in trying to do the very best for my mother was exemplary! My family and I will forever be grateful to April! My husband and I have done our will through April and we always recommend her to friends and family. God bless you and your very capable staff!- Patricia C.
Over the years Hill & Kinsella have professionally assisted with my legal needs and I would recommend their firm for the best Elder Law professional service in Pinellas County.- Michael C.
Thanks to April Hill, my sisters and I were able to better take care of Mom and when she passed, handle her affairs more easily. Now that it was time for me to revise my will, I came to April. She has well-advised me and I am grateful for her knowledge and help for my future. When the time comes that my family has to deal with my estate, their work will be easier for this planning. Having settled estates for two of my relatives myself, I can provide my loved ones with an easier time taking care of things when I am gone. Thanks, April for your help!- Ginger P.
April and her team were asked to take over my mother's estate as my previous attorney was unable to finish. April & Team were wonderful. This was not a run of the mill probate. There were several issues left hanging by my previous attorney and April cleared everything up quickly. Hill & Kinsella is a great law firm. I'm so grateful our paths crossed.- Former Client
