With more and more baby boomers reaching the ripe age of retirement, one would think the topic of elder law would be more readily discussed. The unfortunate and sad truth, however, is that most are too afraid to breech the topic. While estate planning, wills and trusts, and assisted living are important aspect to have planned, these are not conversations anyone enjoys having. But avoiding the unpleasant leads to being unprepared, which causes problems and unnecessary stress.

Mark Shalloway and his team of experienced attorneys at Shalloway & Shalloway help make that transition and difficult conversation easier. The firm has been noted a number of times for their respectful, honest service.
