Lawyers Dedicated to Elder Law

When attorney Leo Cushing founded the Cushing & Dolan law firm in 1984, the lawyers focused on tax and estate planning issues for families and businesses. As our law firm grew, we noticed other issues were causing families great concern: long-term care and other matters associated with aging.

Serving the Elderly and Their Families throughout Massachusetts

The facts are clear: More than 43% of people over 65 will spend some time in a nursing home. How can the family prepare for that eventuality? Too many elderly people see their assets wiped out by long-term care. Because we care, the Elder Law Centers attorneys and staff focus on helping elderly people and their families.

Because our law firm cares, we offer:

  • High quality legal services at a reasonable cost
  • Lawyers who understand financial issues as well as legal issues (Leo Cushing is a CPA as well as an elder law attorney.)
  • Estate planning and Medicaid planning tailored to the circumstances and needs of your family
  • Long-term care planning that protects assets and provides necessary care

As children in their 40s and 50s seek ways to care for their parents, as seniors in their 70s and 80s seek ways to preserve their heritage, as families seek ways to assure older relatives are treated with dignity and respect, the Elder Law Centers are here to help and advise:

  • Asset Protection
  • Conservatorships
  • Health Care Proxies
  • Durable Powers of Attorney
  • Life Estate
  • Long-Term Care Planning
  • Medicaid Applications—Fair Hearings
  • Medicaid Trusts
  • Patient Abuse/Neglect
  • Private Annuities
  • Probate Administration
  • Property Liquidation
  • Property Management
  • Trusteeships
  • Wills and Living Wills
  • Domestic Asset Protection Trusts
  • Buy/Sell Agreement Planning Business Owners
  • Prenuptial Agreement Planning

The Elder Law Centers is an affiliate of Cushing & Dolan, P.C., a Boston law firm known for sophisticated and personalized approaches to estate planning and tax issues. Our lawyers devote their practices exclusively to helping elderly people and their families.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:
Comfort Level - Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
Credentials - How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
Cost - How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
City - Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?
