What Is Elder Law Services?
Elder Law Services focuses on helping seniors and their families navigate the waters of aging. These waters may or may not include: dealing with physical disabilities, cognitive challenges, asset protection, distribution of assets at death, delegation of the ability to make health care and financial decisions, providing for a disabled child, paying for the care of an aging loved one, and understanding that the “money issues” are only part of the issues at hand and may not be the most important at any one point in time.
Our goal is to make the journey through the challenges of caring for, planning for, and paying for the care of a disabled spouse, parent, family member or friend a bit less stressful. We have found that a solid base of knowledge, which dispels myths, presents options, and establishes a confidence goes a long way toward the reduction of stress. All this accomplished with an in-depth consultation in a location that is comfortable for the elder and family, usually in the family home or the care facility where the elder is located. We come to you!
Elder Law Services makes a concerted effort to help families focus on the whole picture of what is happening around them and help them see that the priorities for them include both legal and personal matters. We offer compassionate, knowledgeable and experienced elder law advice and representation that will help you achieve the best results for your loved one and your family.

What Clients Say
Past clients have often commented that Elder Law Services “is not like any law firm that they have experienced before.” We believe they feel that way because our priorities are focused on them as individuals not as just another client with billable hours. We interact with individuals and families when they are facing very difficult and frightening times. We recognize that there are many issues that are part of the circumstances we walk into with new clients, some are “legal” and many are not but they are all important. We try to guide them in their “legal” concerns and direct them to appropriate professionals in other fields who can help them in the other matters they face.
David has a background as a pastor and as a seasoned attorney and he takes what he knows from both worlds and applies that experience to each and every client that we help. Theresa started working with seniors over fifteen years ago, by volunteering at a nursing home as a companion for residents who had no regular visitors. She has a passion for the elderly. Together, we place a high value on education and as a result we do a lot of “no pitch” public speaking for churches, community centers, businesses, and care facilities.
