Darlington County Elder Law Attorney

As one grows older, it is important to properly plan for the prospect of living on a fixed income and the possibility of future incapacity or illness. Planning for or responding to such needs is an objective of the practice of elder law.

At Conner Law Firm, in Hartsville, South Carolina, we help our clients throughout Darlington County and the Pee Dee region to prepare for the future. Our elder law services blend estate planning - including wills, trusts and powers of attorney and guardianships - with a focus on preparations for the end stages of life, particularly for long-term care.

South Carolina Elder Law And Guardianship Attorney Serving Florence, Hartsville And The Pee Dee Region

Many people worry that long-term care will force them to deplete their assets. This does not have to happen. The advanced planning strategies we provide at Conner Law Firm can enable you or your loved one to access government programs, including Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security Disability (SSD) and veterans benefits, while retaining access to important assets.

Particularly, we can assist you in creating a special needs trust as part of a comprehensive estate plan to help you to reserve money for your loved one while protecting eligibility for public assistance, whether your needs include in-home nursing assistance, assisted living, Alzheimer's/dementia care or hospice planning.

We also assist clients in setting up guardianships and conservatorships over disabled loved ones, so they can make financial, medical and other decisions on the loved ones' behalf.

Tax Planning

Because taxation is a significant aspect of estate planning our law firm also focuses on taxation matters. Our experienced Darlington County estate planning attorney, Richard Conner, has a traditional law degree (Juris Doctor) and a Master's of Laws (LL.M.) degree in taxation. This combination enables him to defend your interests while limiting the tax burden that might otherwise erode the value of your estate.

Abuse And Neglect

Conner Law Firm cares for the physical well-being of its clients. If your elderly loved one was taken advantage of financially, was physically or sexually abused, or suffered injury or death as a result of neglect (such as dehydration, malnutrition or bedsores) while under the care of a hospital, nursing home, home health care worker, we can seek justice and financial compensation to help right the wrong.
