As our loved ones age, they often suffer diminished physical and mental capacity.

Medical and care expenses can increase dramatically as we age.  By the time you are in your 60’s, it is possible that you will start providing some kind of care for an aging parent or other relative. Making sure they are safe and healthy can be a big undertaking.

Elder Law is a complex area of law specializing in Estate Planning, Medicare, Medicaid, Powers of Attorney and other issues commonly faced by older adults and the disabled.

There are many steps to understanding it all, and many people simply don’t know where to start.  We can assist you with the legal process.

We help people who are looking for answers regarding:

  • Planning and paying for nursing home care
  • Long term care planning
  • Real Estate
  • Medicaid / Title 19 Planning
  • Wills
  • Trusts
  • Planning beyond Medicare
  •  Financial Power of Attorney
  • Health Care Power of Attorney
  • Guardianship/Conservatorship

Why choose Attorney Jane L. Walker?

“We worked with Jane to understand Medicaid and nursing home payments. She provided a solid overview and common-sense advice. We now plan to contact her to help probate our mother’s estate.

She was also of help in the transfer of deeds to our mother upon our father’s passing four years ago.”

“Not expecting to be in the position to have to get guardianship of my father, and the fear of the unknown, choosing a lawyer to get the job done was a decision I had to make. Given a list by the social worker at Waukesha Memorial Hospital and after a simple phone call, I knew by talking to Sam, this is the office. Straight to the point, information, pricing and how they were going to get the job done. After reviewing the information with other family members, we moved forward to work with Jane Walker and team. They did everything they said they would do and for people who knew nothing about what we were doing, it was a great experience and would recommend them to anyone. Thanks again!”

I would like to express my heartfelt thanks for all the guidance and care that was given to me by Attorney Jane Walker and her staff. They were able to put a plan in place that would enable me to provide care for my husband and peace of mind for myself. Without their help I would not have been able to handle the massive amounts of forms and information gathering required to place my husband on Medicaid.

With the concern they showed me, I felt more like a family member than a client. They were always available to answer my e-mails, phone calls or just dropping by the office with my multitude of questions.
