In addition to estate work, Hinman, Howard & Kattell’s attorneys are experienced in guardianship/conservatorship matters, including, where necessary, litigation. Our attorneys assist clients with decisions in planning to maximize public benefits such as Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security, and in deciding when and how to withdraw from benefit plans. We are knowledgeable about taxation of distributions from employee benefit plans, including pensions, annuities, IRAs and Keoughs and health and long-term care planning. We also draft health care proxies, advance directives, and powers of attorney. HH&K can assist with the creation of trusts for minor children and grandchildren, and also advise on planning for the continuing support of disabled children or other dependents.
