No matter which office is most accessible to you, you will get the same high-quality customer service and knowledgeable guidance.

Estate Planning Question to Ask Yourself

Not sure you need to see an estate planning attorney right now? Unless you have recently completed a plan with an experienced professional, you could probably benefit from a review of your assets, current documents, and hopes for the future. If your answer to any of these questions is “No,” you would be smart to seek the advice of Alperin Law:

  • Do you have a will?
  • Have you planned for joint ownership?
  • Have you designated beneficiaries for all of your asset?
  • Do you have a living trust?
  • Do you have financial and medical powers of attorney?
  • Do you have a living will?
  • Have you chosen and spoken to guardians for your minor children?

Regardless of your income level or the value of your assets, the only way to protect what you own and ensure your loved ones get what you want them to have after you are gone is to have a comprehensive estate plan in place.

What Is Elder Law?

Even if you have all of the recommended documents in place, you will have new concerns as you age. Elder law is the area of estate planning that takes these concerns into account. When you meet with the elder law attorneys in our Norfolk office, you will tackle worries like how to pay for a nursing home, who will make decisions for you if you develop dementia, qualifying for veterans benefits and Medicaid, and more.

Experience the Alperin Law Difference

Wherever you live in Hampton Roads, the Virginia Peninsula, or Gloucester County, you can find a convenient office to meet with one of our attorneys. Our dedication to providing personalized service to each and every one of our clients will be obvious in our very first meeting. Fill out the form on this page or call 757-490-3500 to schedule an appointment in any one of our offices, including Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Newport News, Suffolk, or Chesapeake.

Our Full List Of Legal Services

Elder Law

As you plan for your senior years, you should be able to do so with confidence and excitement, not fear and uncertainty. When you work with the elder care attorneys at Alperin Law, we make sure you have the documents, trusts, directives, and support in place to ensure a smooth transition into your golden years. You should not have to worry about losing all your assets to a nursing home or having a stranger make decisions for you if you are unable to do so. Our attorneys have the experience to foresee all the possibilities and to put a plan in place to make sure you are prepared for whatever may happen to you or your spouse.

Life Care Planning

Many people mistakenly believe that once they reach a certain age, there is no need to focus on planning for the future. Unfortunately, this belief leaves some older adults stranded in a situation where they can’t pay for the care they need and their hard-earned life savings quickly disappear. This doesn’t have to happen to you or your elderly parent or loved one. At Alperin Law, we provide help and support to seniors facing these difficult decisions as part of our holistic approach to elder law.

Medicaid Planning

Wondering how you’ll be able to afford a quality nursing home or assisted living facility if you need full-time care one day? We are here to help! Our experienced estate planning and elder law attorneys have tools at their disposal to help you qualify for Medicaid benefits to cover part or all of the cost of long-term care while protecting your hard-earned assets. It’s never too early to meet with our attorneys to discuss the best way to structure your assets now to make sure you are taken care of down the road.

Veterans Pension Benefits

Veterans are national treasures and should be treated as such. Unfortunately, the systems in place to support veterans are often cumbersome and difficult for them to navigate—particularly for elderly and disabled former service members. Because Alperin Law serves the Hampton Roads area—home to one of the highest concentrations of veterans in the country—we are well versed in the estate planning and elder law issues affecting veterans. As VA-accredited attorneys, we are qualified to help with Veterans Pension applications. If you think you or a loved one might be eligible for these important benefits, contact us for help in making sure you get the benefits you deserve.

Estate Planning

At Alperin Law, our estate planning attorneys have worked with enough individuals to know that no two people are alike in their desires for the future and their needs for asset protection. One thing everyone has in common, however, is the need for some kind of an estate plan. Whether you are young or old, have children or not, have a few thousand dollars to your name or millions, are married, widowed, or divorced, now is the perfect time to meet with an attorney to discuss your unique estate planning needs.

Probate, Estate & Trust Administration

At Alperin Law, our services extend beyond planning for the future. When your needs are in the here and now, such as going through probate or administering a loved one’s trust or estate, we are here for you. These tasks can be complicated, and you do not want to attempt them on your own, particularly if you are grieving the loss of someone special. That said, we do also encourage you to think about planning ahead so that your loved ones will not have to go through the same process after you are gone.

Special Needs Planning

You have done your best to care for your special needs child their entire life. Sometimes, that has meant fighting for the services they need and the benefits they deserve. Thinking about their life after you are gone is incredibly difficult but absolutely necessary to ensure they are well cared for in your absence. Even if you have trustworthy people in your life who will continue to look out for them, you need to take legal steps now to make sure they will always have access to the government benefits to which they are entitled as well as being able to take advantage of the assets you are leaving behind.

Personal Injury Settlement Planning

If you were involved in a car accident, slip and fall, workplace accident, or incident involving medical negligence, you might be expecting a substantial personal injury settlement. No matter how the settlement is paid, you should put some thought into how you are going to manage the money and whether it will prevent you from collecting important need-based benefits such as Medicaid or disability. The estate planning attorneys at Alperin Law understand your options and will work with you to preserve your settlement and make sure it doesn’t interfere with the government benefits you are receiving today or may be eligible to receive in the future.

Social Security Disability

Social Security disability benefits are designed to be a safety net for people who find themselves unable to work because of illness or injury. Unfortunately, rather than feeling cared for and protected by the system, many disabled workers instead struggle to get the benefits they deserve and end up feeling frustrated and alone. At Alperin Law, compassion and understanding are at the core of our guiding principles when fighting for our clients who need Social Security disability benefits. If your application for benefits has been denied—or if you are preparing your first application—contact our Hampton Roads law firm to get the help you need.

Veterans Disability Benefits

If you served in the U.S. military, you remember everything about your time on active duty or in the reserves: boot camp, rifle qualification, first assignment, etc. But you remember other things, too, like the day you realized that a medical issue might be more serious than you thought. This isn’t uncommon for military personnel—serving is tough, and many veterans carry a lifetime of medical problems as a result. You should know that the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has a number of programs designed to provide financial, medical, and other assistance to veterans, and if your service-related injury or illness led to disability, you may be eligible for monthly compensation benefits.

Real Estate Law

Commercial and residential real estate transactions in Virginia and North Carolina require a technical understanding of the law in order to secure your investment, take advantage of tax savings, and protect yourself from litigation. Don’t make the mistake that many people make by entering into a real estate transaction or negotiation without the benefit of a knowledgeable attorney. This is risky and unnecessary. Contact the experienced real estate legal team at Alperin Law if you are buying, selling, or leasing residential or commercial property in Virginia or North Carolina, or are involved in a dispute involving a real estate contract, landlord, homeowners association, zoning law, or any other real estate matter. With over a half century of combined legal experience, we have the capability to zealously and skillfully represent your interests while protecting your investment.

Business Law & Succession Planning

From small family-run businesses to large, publicly traded companies, Alperin Law has helped organizations of all sizes succeed in Virginia. Whether you are in the process of forming a new company, preparing to sell your existing business, or planning for what will happen to your business after you’re gone, put our extensive experience to work for you. Whatever your business objectives are, you need an experienced business attorney to produce positive results. You need Alperin Law.
