The Law Office of Michael D. Caccavo handles a variety of legal matters. We pride ourselves on personal service and if there are matters which we can’t help you with, we’ll gladly recommend another attorney who can. The areas we concentrate on are:
We can assist with all your estate planning needs. We prepare Wills and Trusts. We can arrange smaller estates so you can pass your property without the need for Probate or at least minimize the Probate estate. We can create plans for those who have concerns about Estate Taxes or loved ones with Special Needs.
An important part of any Estate plan is to deal with the possibility of lifetime disability. We can create Durable Powers of Attorney, Advance Health Care Directives, Trusts, and other documents to assure your affairs are properly managed if you become disabled, without the need for a Guardianship. We can also help when someone you love has a disability, whether it is discussing their benefits or planning to preserve those benefits.
This area is often referred to as Elder Law, although real elder law encompasses all the things mentioned here. Many people are worried about having to go into a nursing home, and spending all their assets on their care, leaving nothing for their loved ones. We can explain the complicated Medicaid system and devise plans to help you preserve your assets and qualify for Medicaid more quickly. While we cannot insure that you will never go to a nursing home, we can help diminish some of the financial fears for you and your loved ones
Probate matters come in two varieties, death probate, usually called “probate” or “estate”, and lifetime probate, usually called “guardianship”. We are experienced with both types of Probate and can help you through the often complicated process.
Whether you are buying or selling a home or commercial property you need an experienced attorney. We have been handling real estate matters for over 35 years. We can assist with drafting or reviewing Purchase and Sale agreements, Deeds, options, private notes and mortgages, and any other documents you might need. We generally represent Sellers but occasionally do represent Buyers as well. We do NOT handle lender closings.
