Our Elder Law Practice

Elder law is an area of law that focuses on the unique needs of an older adult. Our firm hopes to provide the legal framework, along with an appropriate care plan, to enable each of our clients to maintain their independence for as long as possible.  We strive to bring a holistic approach, by not only evaluating the legal needs of an individual, but also by addressing the social, emotional, and medical needs of the client and the family members who are the support system for that client. Attorney Judy Linville and Social Worker Cindy Lynn, combine their skills sets to provide a care plan that considers legal needs, social-emotional needs, financial concerns, medical realities, support resources and end of life care desires.

Our Estate Planning Practice

Judy’s story is unique in that she has years of experience working both with a larger law firm and as an attorney dedicated solely to one family’s business, tax, and estate planning needs.   With this diverse background, Judy recognizes that estate planning involves more than merely preparing and signing the legal documents and the best plans come from a hands-on team approach.   Our firm understands the key role both the client and their other professional advisors play in estate planning.   We believe estate planning is personal and unique to each client.   We are a results-oriented firm placing the highest priority on our client relationships.   At our firm, the process starts with understanding and identifying your needs.   We then engage you and your financial and tax advisors to design a plan meeting these needs.  Finally, our team maintains the client relationship following the signing of the documents to ensure any follow-up matters such as retitling assets, funding trusts, and signing new beneficiary designation forms have been completed.  We look forward to working with you to make sure you have a plan, that you understand that plan and that you use the plan to maximize your objectives.
