About Ozarks Elder Law Firm
As an Elder Law firm, we consider what is best for our clients from all points of view, including the legal, medical, financial, social and family issues. We approach these issues in an objective way, with a primary emphasis on promoting the highest quality of life for the individuals that we serve.
We became lawyers because we wanted to be problem solvers and strong advocates for those who need help with society’s institutions; and we wanted to help people with the legal planning that allows each of us to care for ourselves and to provide for those we care about. This is the philosophy that guides our practice everyday.
We assist clients in planning for the possibility of disability, incapacity, home health care, assisted living and/or nursing home placement. Through estate planning and asset protection planning, our firm helps clients to avoid probate and the impoverishment caused by the escalating cost of long term care. We also help our clients maintain their right to make health care decisions and avoid unnecessary medical treatment.
The sole focus of our Elder Law practice has been the same for 20 years since founded by Lois Zerrer in 2002 —the legal needs of the elderly and disabled. We meet with clients where they are most comfortable. If a client is unable to travel to our office, we can meet with them at their residence, assisted living facility, nursing home or hospital room.
