Providing Comprehensive Legal Services for Elders in a Cost-Effective Manner
At Hope Elder Law, our goal is to provide comprehensive legal services in a cost-effective manner, and to offer useful information and referrals to help clients improve the quality of their lives. Many seniors contact us directly for legal guidance, or we can help if you need an attorney for your elder parent or disabled spouse, child, or relative. Our practice areas include:
- Elder law, including planning for long-term care and incapacity and assistance with guardianship and/or conservatorship
- Estate planning, including wills, trusts, and competence planning through use of durable powers of attorney and health care proxies
- Medicaid asset protection planning to protect homes, real estate, and financial assets for one’s own benefit and for one's heirs
- Medicaid/MassHealth applications and hearings, as well as assistance with Medicare and other public benefits
- Special needs trusts and disability planning
Firm founder John R. Hope, an honors graduate of Boston College Law School, chose to practice elder law and estate planning because he enjoys working directly with people. He listens to clients needs while explaining issues and options in a clear, easy to understand manner. Mr. Hope's commitment to helping elders extends beyond the doors of his law firm. He regularly gives talks at area senior centers, and is a member of the Board of Directors of the Marshall Home Fund, a non-profit charity that assists residents age 55 and over in the community of Watertown.
