I write a blog on issues related to elder and disability law here in Wisconsin. It has in-depth explanations of Medicaid eligibility, divestment and estate recovery issues, as well as different topics.

"Elder Law" describes the main focus of our practice.


There are a range of legal issues that arise as a person ages. These include:


  • The need to have important documents in place to name people who can make decisions, such as a health care power of attorney and financial power of attorney.
  • Questions and concerns about long term care planning, such as Medicaid (also called Title 19 or MA)  and Family Care.
  • Concerns about what happens to your assets if you or a loved one needs nursing home care.
  • A need to pursue guardianship where a loved one has an illness and did not have powers of attorney in place.
  • A need for a tough lawyer when someone is trying to pursue a guardianship that is not appropriate.
  • Financial abuse and exploitation.


The main focus for me is to guide you through these issues and provide the legal help that you need. I have over 22 years of experience in elder law, and has represented clients at all levels of proceedings from administrative hearings to the United States Supreme Court.
