Elder Law

As We Grow Older

Schmidt & Schmidt, S.C. — Wausau, Wisconsin

Independence, quality of life and financial security are tremendously important issues to disabled individuals and aging seniors. Elder law is focused on those issues and on the other special needs of people in these groups.

Why do you need a lawyer?

Simply put — the high costs of disabilities or illnesses such as Alzheimer’s that require long-term care can quickly consume an entire estate. Our expertise with complex estate planning, guardianship issues and long-term health care needs can ensure that doesn’t happen.
