The Koldin Law Center, P.C., limits its practice to the specific field of Elder Law. We have a “primary” estate planning practice component as well as a “focused” Medicaid law component.
At the Koldin Law Center, some of our clients meet with us to discuss their general estate planning needs, such as a Will, Power of Attorney, and Health Care Proxy.
Some of our clients also wish to discuss more complex estate planning objectives such as an Irrevocable Trust to avoid/minimize probate along with protecting assets in the event long term care is needed.
Some of our clients come to our office because of a long term care illness and need an attorney who has strong knowledge in the field of Medicaid law to protect their life savings and to handle applying for Medicaid.
Elder Law attorneys also act as a referral source for clients to obtain help for their specific needs. At the Koldin Law Center, P.C., we often refer our clients to various professionals such as an Accountant, Financial Planner, Real Estate Attorney, Tax Attorney, and Insurance Agent.

When the Koldin Law Center, P.C. handles a Medicaid case, we not only handle the entire application process, but we also review asset protection options with our clients. We review with our clients who are already in a Nursing Home options to protect some or all of their assets beyond merely establishing Medicaid eligibility.
We do not charge a fee for the initial consultation. We welcome your children, family attorney, accountant, and/or financial planner to be present at the initial consultation.
