Long-term care planning, also known as Medicaid planning, is for people who are healthy now but want to ensure that, if they become incapacitated, they will be able to get the care they need without losing their life savings.
Our attorneys can design a plan that allows you to protect your assets, while adequately managing your financial and personal affairs in the event of incapacity or disability.
With such a plan in place, you will know that you will be well cared for if you become incapacitated.
A Medicaid crisis is a situation wherein an individual has already entered a nursing home—or must do so very soon—and has been informed that she or he has too many assets to qualify for assistance from Medicaid. As you might imagine, finding out that you will have to pay well over $100,000 a year for nursing home care creates a crisis situation for most families. Many people are often told they have to be broke to qualify for Medicaid, something that is completely untrue. If you have been given news like this, don’t panic. You must understand that information provided by social workers, nursing home intake staff, and even Medicaid workers is quite often outdated. The laws governing Medicaid eligibility are ever-changing and quite complicated. Few people truly understand them. We do.
Our attorneys specialize in helping families plan for themselves or a loved one’s Medicaid eligibility at long-term care homes. We have mastered navigating the system and stay abreast of the frequent changes in Medicaid rules. If you or a loved one is faced with a Medicaid crisis, contact us as soon as possible.

Serving Families Through Private & Convenient Zoom Meetings
I first met Mike Rutkowski when my mom needed to update her estate plan, Will and establish a “Living Trust”. In the year that followed, Mike provided us with continuous support through challenges in Probate Court by mom’s family and subsequent revisions to mom’s estate plan and Will. Since mom’s passing, Mike has continued to give me great support as the Trustee of her estate. Recently, I chose Mike’s firm to set up my own Will and Trust. Rutkowski Law Firm and its staff have been a constant support to me at every step of the process. I would recommend Rutkowski Law Firm to any and every one for issues related to Wills, Trusts, Probate, etc. Definitely a reputable firm to trust with your life planning. I give my highest recommendation to this firm for their honesty, integrity and reliability.
After procrastinating for many years I finally decided to get my will and trust done. I expected it to be a lengthy and cumbersome process but I was pleasantly surprised! I chose Rutkowski Law Firm because I saw an ad in the local paper and they were convenient to where I lived. What I got was “white glove” treatment, a very professional and friendly staff, and most importantly, immediate response to all my questions and concerns. I worked with Michael Rutkowski and Trisha Harris—a great team! Without hesitation I would recommend them to anyone looking to get their “affairs in order”.
