Elder Law in Okaloosa and Walton County Florida

How is Elder Law Different?

Understanding what elder law is and how it differs from other forms of law is important for any Florida attorneys who specialize in it. In many ways, it’s more important than some other forms of family law because elder law often deals with those who are vulnerable and often taken advantage of. Our elderly loved ones and aging parents deserve a legal team who will fight for their best interest. The Wheeler Firm can help with a variety of elder law needs, including but not limited to:

  • Guardianship Proceedings
  • Medicaid Planning for Long-Term Care
  • Estate Planning
  • Last Will and Testament
  • Durable Powers of Attorney
  • Living Will
  • Health Care Surrogate Designations
  • Preneed Guardian Designations
  • Probate Avoidance
  • Probate Administration
  • Trust Creation and Administration

Our firm specializes in elder law because we believe that even the most vulnerable in our society should be protected. Andrew D. Wheeler, a member of the National Association of Elder Law Attorneys, the Academy of Florida Elder Law Attorneys, and the Estate Planning Council of the Emerald Coast, will do everything he can to look out for the needs of his elderly clients here in Okaloosa County.
