Is a recent diagnosis threatening your legal and financial well-being?  

Or are you a healthy, vigorous senior who’s ready to have peace of mind about retirement?  

A comprehensive estate plan designed around your unique needs that may protect you when push comes to shove!


I’ve seen the struggles you’re going through.   

I’ve seen so often that without professional help, it’s the easiest thing in the world to lose most of what you’ve worked so hard for.   

I often meet with families who’ve been struggling for years without help, rapidly depleting their life savings.  Or a wife whose husband has just gotten a diagnosis, and they’re scared there won’t be enough for her to live on – or even that she’ll lose her home.   

But there is good news!  The law allows us to solve many of these problems, and provides protections for those who know where to look.  

You may be able to save more of your assets than you think!  I’m Elder Law attorney Jimmy D. Long, Jr.  In law school, I clerked at a big firm in a skyscraper downtown, and I learned one important thing – I didn’t want to represent corporations, I wanted to represent real people! I’ve been working in Elder Law a long time, because I like it.  I can remember when my grandmother had a stroke and my mother was caring for both her parents until they were well enough to go home, and I wanted to help others in similar situations.  I see how fragile life can be, and want to help you be prepared for any situation.

Most often, seniors and their families will come to visit me because of a significant life change. I’m here to be a trusted guide during that time of change, helping to navigate the waters of:
  • Ensuring your estate isn’t wasted by healthcare costs, your spouse remarrying, or your kids’ frivolous spending should you pass

  • An unexpected diagnosis

  • Divorce or marriage – whether it’s yours or your kids’

  • A need for nursing home care – and a way to pay for it

  • The death of a family member

  • Children reaching the age of independence

 

Life tends to throw the unexpected at us. The good news is: my proven, ethical approach to Elder Care Planning is designed to meet your needs – even as they change.

Maybe you’re a healthy, vigorous senior looking to put a quality estate plan in order and get your ducks in a row. You might even have a will or a trust, but things have changed and they need to be updated. Your kids have grown, marriages and remarriages may have taken place, or maybe it’s simply been a few years and the laws have changed.

The important thing is – you must be sure that the documents you have in place will protect your family when they need it. Even in the best of cases, it’s important to plan for the ones you love.

Without additional protections, the money you leave to your beneficiaries goes straight into their checking accounts. What happens then is that your money is frittered away within a matter of months.

Too often, I see a family who wants to provide for a child who will never be able to handle money (either because of vulnerability, disability, or addiction), and they don’t know how to do that. I have good news! You can provide for a vulnerable loved one without your estate being lost… simply ask about a Love and Protection Trust to provide your beloved child or grandchild with the things they need – even after you’re gone.

Or maybe you’re having a time of crisis as you try to pay for long term care. The truth is, while you may have been told by a well-meaning social worker that there’s nothing you can do, there is often something that can be done to save some of your hard-earned money. That’s where I come in. I’m Estate Planning and Elder Law attorney Jimmy D. Long, Jr.  I love to help families like yours to get the best possible outcome for your unique situation. 

You may have a loved one with a chronic diagnosis, such as:
  • Alzheimer's and Memory Problems

  • Parkinson's

  • Mobility Issues

  • Diabetes

  • ALS

  • MS

  • Or a host of others...

 

The truth is, it’s never easy to talk about matters of finances, life, and death. Being faced with senior care-related decisions can often lead to emotional and messy confrontations when it comes to family. 

Having been a trusted guide to hundreds of Louisiana families, I’ll help you navigate the red tape of exploring what benefits may be available to you. In addition, I work with families every day to help resolve issues as family conflict arises, so you can cope with the tough decisions that need to be made. It is my goal to provide you with the peace of mind that comes with knowing your wishes and needs will be met – not only after you pass, but while you’re still alive.

My practice excels at guiding families, business owners, and seniors through the often-confusing maze of financial and legal decisions involved in all aspects of the elder care spectrum. I’m here to help, whether you’re a healthy, vigorous senior getting ready for retirement or have more pressing care needs for the frail and elderly. This will help secure the well being of your cherished families and the accomplishment of your legacy goals. 

So, if you’re finding it difficult to cope, and you don’t know where to start with your planning, then now is the time to get in touch. Call my office today to schedule your initial consultation at (318) 352-9229. Don’t get caught without a plan, without a dime, and without alternatives. The best time to protect yourself is while you still have options!

Sincerely,

Do you Have a Loved One With Special Needs?

One of my passions is helping families of those with special needs. What’s more, not all those who are vulnerable have a traditionally-defined disability. Families often come to me because of a child or grandchild who is not disabled, but will never be able to handle money… maybe because of an addiction, a spending problem, or simply a habit of poor life choices. Many well-meaning people – including attorneys – may tell you that the only thing you can do is to disinherit your loved one. Even in the closest of families, this can lead to heartache and frustration. There is a better way! With a Special Needs Trust or a Tender Loving Care trust, you can continue to provide comfort to your vulnerable child – while you’re here and after you’re gone. But it’s not just about ensuring they have a hot meal and a roof over their heads – you can actually plan for the everyday joys that make life wonderful.
