Spokane Estate Planning, Elder Law & Probate Lawyers

You’ve worked to build a life and home for your family, and you know how important it is to protect what you’ve built for their sake. Moulton Law Offices, P.S., is here to help you do just that. We are your guide through the process of estate planning and elder law matters so you can make the best decisions for your family. Your best days may still be ahead of you; our team is here to give you security and peace of mind knowing you and your family are protected no matter what life has in store. Contact our experienced Spokane estate planning, elder law & probate lawyers today, and let’s start by having a discussion about your needs and goals.

Comprehensive Estate Planning That Carries Out Your Wishes and Meets Your Needs

Estate planning is about more than just drafting a will to distribute your estate after you are gone. It is also about protecting your assets and seeing to your personal care while you are still here, so you will know you are protected regardless of what comes your way. That’s why our Spokane estate planning attorneys take the time to sit down with you and make sure we understand your needs and desires so we can create the estate plan that works for you. We’ll provide you with a will, a revocable living trust, and a complete set of advance directives and powers of attorney to carry you through any period of incapacity as well as look after your property when you are gone, directing its distribution according to your wishes. If you have a home, a business, or a large estate bumping up against the Washington estate tax, we’ll provide you with quality advice and assistance tailored to your unique needs.

Elder Law Attorneys Protecting Your Assets and Maximizing Your Benefits

Elder law encompasses many legal issues facing adults around retirement age and older. A chief concern for many is being able to afford long-term care should the need arise. Medicaid can cover that cost, but strict Medicaid income requirements put many people between a rock and a hard place in deciding whether to hang on to their assets or spend them down to qualify for Medicaid. We can help you do both. Through thoughtful advance (pre-need) planning, we can employ strategies like Medicaid Asset Protection Trusts that protect your home and other property so you can qualify for Medicaid and afford long-term care without going broke in the process. If you find yourself in a Medicaid crisis, meaning you’ve already been admitted to a nursing home and need to qualify for Medicaid right away, we have strategies to help there as well.

Our Spokane elder law practice also includes helping veterans access VA benefits, including Aid and Attendance and Housebound benefits to help pay for care at home or in assisted living.

Probate Lawyers Providing Technical Assistance in Trust and Estate Administration

Our probate practice includes advising and helping estate administrators get through the probate or trust administration process efficiently and effectively, completing the many daunting tasks that await them as an executor, estate personal representative, or successor trustee. No one expects you to do all this alone; we are here to help with trusted advice and skilled professional assistance.

Our Spokane probate lawyers do all we can to help you minimize or avoid probate in our estate planning practice, and we are equally diligent in helping you get through probate cost-effectively with minimal headaches.

Ongoing Client Care for All of Life’s Changes

Completing your estate plan entitles you to a well-earned sigh of relief, but estate planning should never be thought of as just a one-time task. Tax laws change, family dynamics change, and your desires may change too. Moulton Law Offices offers a Client Care Program that keeps you informed and updated on changes to the law through newsletters, seminars and personal contact. You’ll have concierge access to our firm, with many valuable services to keep your estate plan updated and substantial discounts on more advanced work. Enrollment in our Client Care Program is included for one year with any revocable living trust, and renewal is both valuable and affordable.

  • Change your mind or a change in the law? We update your documents at no additional cost.
  • Flying south for the winter? We put your estate planning documents in an online portal that you can access anywhere at any time.
  • Worried about being in a health crisis? We’ll provide you with a wallet card so doctors and others can have ready access to the valuable information they’ll need to help you.
  • Need another trust or other legal documents? Client Care Program members receive substantial discounts on our services.
