Long Term Care & Medicaid Planning:
Loved One In Long Term Care Or A Nursing Home?
Need A Plan Before You Lose Everything?
Long Term costs are one of the biggest - if not the biggest - threats to your retirement security & your estate. Medicaid qualification, nursing home asset protection planning & other long term care rules are very complicated. Our job is to help understand what types of crisis planning tools or options are available to you and to implement your chosen plan. AND we also handle the Medicaid application process from start to finish. Not only do we make sure all of our plans are implemented properly, we make sure they work - and that our clients get approved.

Wealth Management & Tax Planning for Retirement:
We bring the worlds of estate, asset protection and tax planning together with wealth management through our sister firm Think Different Financial where we manage portfolios for not only growth and income purposes, but also volatility risks.
The main goal of our tax planning is to generate more tax diversification. This means we’ll assess your current tax liability — whether it's income taxes, capital gains taxes or estate taxes — and develop strategies to minimize the taxes you pay during your retirement, as well as when passing on your wealth to the next generation. Many families may not need estate or death tax planning, but almost all families can benefit from income tax planning in retirement.
Unless you believe that tax rates will go down in the face of trillion dollar annual deficits & the massive National Debt, you need a tax plan.

Probate & Administration of Estates:
Loved One Pass Away?
We Can Help You Work Through Administering Their Estate.
Probate & Estate Administration Needs to Be Handled Promptly & Correctly. Let Us Guide Your Family Through This Tough Time. Whenever a person dies, his or her estate needs to be collected, managed, and distributed. Estate administration involves gathering the assets of the estate, paying the decedent's debts, and distributing the assets that remain in the estate.
Lots of questions arise about:
Probate: Is it Necessary | Managing the Estate | Personal Representatives & their Duties | Inventorying the Estate | Paying Debts & Order of Priority | Distributing the Estate | Closing the Estate
What to do When A Loved One is Incapacitated:
Guardianship & Conservatorship
Guardianship is the process of having the Probate Court appoint an individual to manage the well being of an incapacitated individual, usually a family member. Technically, in Georgia like many states, we have two components:
- Guardianship (to manage health care and other medical / placement decisions);
- Conservatorship (to manage finances and property matters).
Without Proper Powers of Attorney And Healthcare Directives In Place, You Will Likely Need To Petition Probate Court for Guardianship / Conservatorship. We Can Help.
