While the golden years are supposed to be filled with the joys of retirement, grandchildren and travel, they are seldomly enjoyed without various other complexities that individuals encounter as they age including deteriorating health, financial concerns and family disputes.  To meet these challenges, a unique area of law – elder law has taken on greater value to millions of aging Americans and their caregivers. This area encompasses many different legal disciplines, including estate planning, business succession planning, asset protection, Medicaid planning and veterans benefits. 

For over twenty-three years, Chip LoCoco, an Estate Planning and Elder Law Attorney, has handled all of these matters for many clients. Chip is knowledgeable on the wide array of issues that impact the elderly and can assist you or your loved ones with the following matters:

Healthcare planning including powers of attorneys and living wills
Estate planning 
Long-term care planning
Selecting the right long-term care facility 
Qualifying for public benefits such as Social Security, Medicaid and Veterans Benefits
Conservatorships and guardianships
Prevention of financial exploitation and elder abuse

Chip works diligently to make sure the seniors he represents are protected and continue to enjoy a high quality of life as they age.  He offers compassionate, understanding guidance in all areas of elder law in Louisiana. Chip’s many years of experience allows him to walk his clients through a myriad of issues and address legal and financial decisions surrounding long-term care, whether it’s provided at home, in an assisted living facility or a nursing home. Chip can write wills for clients to make sure assets are protected and distributed the way the client wants them to be distributed. Trusts can be established to provide for future generations or assist in long term care planning. Powers of attorneys can be drafted confirming who can make decisions for you if you become incapacitated. Advance medical directives can be signed letting your family members know your end of life decisions. On some occasions, the legal system must step in when someone is no longer able to make  decisions  for themselves or has become the victim of elder abuse or financial exploitation. At that point, Chip would explore with you the process to file an interdiction proceeding with the Court whereby the Court would appoint someone to take over the affairs for your loved one. 

Chip is devoted to serving seniors and can offer an especially sensitive ear concerning the sometimes difficult decisions involved in aging.
