Florida Medicaid and Estate Planning
Because our goal is to help you succeed in aging with dignity and a high quality of life, both for you and for your loved ones.
Sean W. Scott, Esq. WLAW, PA
Sean W Scott is a Florida Medicaid and Estate Planning expert and help is on the way. Even though a new set of challenges awaits as we grow older there are ways to solve these new problems. Nursing homes assisted living facilities, incapacity and the specter of mortality start showing up in your world.
Since 1990 our focus has been to help our clients avoid the financial ruin of long-term care expenses, make sure that there is a backup person to act if incapacity strikes and to streamline the process of moving assets to beneficiaries after death.
The most significant service we provide is to protect our client’s life savings from nursing home costs by helping qualify for Medicaid benefits. With the average cost of nursing home care in Florida above $10,000 per month, we take action to keep you from being wiped out financially.
Even though our main office is in Pinellas County, we help people all over the State of Florida qualify for Medicaid benefits and routinely use video and phone conferencing in place of face-to-face meetings. Here is a link to our locations.
