Elder Law

Arant & Broesder, LLC is dedicated to solving problems for seniors and their families. Our Elder Law practice consists primarily of assisting with advanced planning for incapacity as well as Estate Planning such as Power of Attorney, Wills and Trusts. Our practice includes Special Needs Trusts and Income Cap Trusts for Medicaid and other Needs Based Benefits.

We also provide legal services for Guardianships and Conservatorships. These Protective Proceedings, when necessary, are court supervised proceedings to assist people with their finances and other substituted decision making.

Family members and interested parties may petition the court to become either a Guardian or a Conservator. An example of this could be when an aging parent becomes unable to take care of himself or herself (feeding, medication, bathing, etc). Concerned family members can petition the court to seek legal status to either become their parent’s legal Guardian, Conservator, or both.

We also represent seniors and their agents in financial or physical Elder Abuse cases.


Arant & Broesder, LLC represents adoptive families and birth parents in independent, agency and step-parent adoptions. We have experience in open and closed adoptions, foreign, interstate, readoptions and special needs adoptions.
