I recently found a very nice Estate Attorney who redid our Wills, POAs etc, but when I asked him what was the best way for a mother to buy a Condo for her disabled daughter and title it correctly in case that mother ever ended up in a nursing home, he advised me to find one of these new Elder Law Attorneys since they are better informed on these type issues.
I have found them to be very expensive and one insists we have to sign a "retainer" contract with him for thousands of dollars before he even tells us exactly what he would be doing for this money. He calls the retainer "insurance" but even with insurance. you know if it is going to cover you for auto, home or medical. I am very confused about the new Elder Law Attorneys and wonder if anyone on DA has ever used one and if they had good experiences with them. After all these years of trying to save money, I would hate to think if we got the wrong advice, so much of it could be lost by not preparing ahead of time. Thanks for any info or advice anyone can share.
