Areas of law which I practice include, but are not limited to the following:
ELDER LAW As people age, concerns about planning for incompetency and protecting assets from nursing home expenses increase. This area of the law blends traditional estate planning, using Wills and Trusts, with planning for competence issues, using Powers of Attorney, as well as issues involving the mix of Medicaid Rules and Estate and Gift Tax issues. At the Law Office of Michael D. Caccavo, we are able to appreciate the complex financial and social realities facing our clients. We are able to guide our clients in dealing with the variety of issues facing them in a comprehensive manner. Contact us for quality Elder Law advice.
ESTATE PLANNING AND PROBATE ADMINISTRATION It may be hard to think about how your family would deal with your affairs and finances after you pass away, but it is essential to do so. Estate planning allows you to impact the future by directing how you would like your property and assets distributed upon your death. Without proper planning your estate could go to people whom you did not choose, or to the government. At the Law Office of Michael D. Caccavo, we can assist you in making informed decisions about your estate and creating comprehensive estate planning documents to carry out your decisions. For existing estates, you and your family may have to go through the Probate system. The Probate process is easier on all involved, if the correct planning has been done in advance, and if you have an experienced Probate attorney. Let us help you with that process.
REAL ESTATE Real estate is a major investment and can cause major headaches. If you are selling a house, or buying a house or business property, we can help. We can draft or review Purchase and Sale Agreements and closing documents to smooth your transaction. We can perform title searches to confirm that there is good title to the property, and avoid unwelcome surprises either during the purchase process, or after you own the property. We can provide title insurance to protect yourself and to meet your lender’s requirements. Contact us for experienced real estate assistance.
