Maybe you recall the time when you looked around the room…and realized that you were the oldest one there. Now your children have gone off to live their own lives, and you’re wondering where the years went…and what the future will bring? Perhaps you’re looking forward to retirement or are already there.
The news keeps saying that Americans are living longer than ever. Meanwhile health care costs continue to rise, and life keeps getting more and more complicated. You’ve put away some money but never planned on low interest rates and an uncertain economy. You’ve weathered past economic downturns and are looking forward to a brighter tomorrow…but you’re wondering what it will take to get there.
At The Elderlaw Firm, we are elder law and estate planning lawyers serving North Carolina. We have the answers you need.
Our practice is designed to help North Carolina seniors, boomers, and other consumers who want to make smart choices plan ahead for their second half of life-- while also giving them the peace of mind that comes with knowing how they’ll afford it, how they’ll take care of other family members if the need arises, and how their hard earned belongings will be cared for if the unfortunate happens.
The way we see it here at The Elderlaw Firm, elder law estate planning goes far beyond legal documents. You need to have the right plan, incorporating tax saving strategies, trust law, testamentary planning, Medicaid rules, “powerful” powers of attorney and key financial considerations to accomplish your goals. In particular, you want to have a plan that helps you keep more of what’s yours, while getting the care you need. And you want to have that plan in place sooner rather than later.
We specialize in elder law estate planning. Since 2002, we have helped thousands of people in North Carolina with their estate planning.

Elder law and estate planning done the right way
The Elderlaw Firm was founded on the passion that founder and lead attorney Dennis Toman has for helping families navigate through the difficult decisions that often come with long-term care planning. He saw first hand the problems that North Carolina families face when they don’t get the right legal and financial advice for retirement and long-term care-- and decided to do something about it.
Now years later, guided by his vision, The Elderlaw Firm goes well beyond traditional estate planning. When it’s important to you to protect your family, preserve your assets, and define your legacy, we’re ready to help.
We serve clients throughout North Carolina, and our main office is in Greensboro, North Carolina (Guilford County). Clients regularly come to us from surrounding counties and beyond, and we also receive numerous referrals from firms all over the country. For clients not able to drive to our Greensboro office, we also offer convenient phone and video consultations. If you are planning ahead or facing a care crisis, we are also able to assist.
We know many people think that lawyers are scary and intimidating. We also know that talking about the second half of life is not comfortable for many people. Don’t let that stop you. You’ll feel welcomed and treated like family when you come to our office. We’re not here to tell you about our certifications, or our designation as one of North Carolina’s first elder law practices. We’re not even here to impress you with testimonials from clients that have loved the job we’ve done (though we’ve got plenty of those, if you’re interested).
Simply put, we’re here for you. We’ll explain the best plan for your action in plain English, and you’ll know you’ve come to the right place. Your satisfaction is important to us.
We’re not the right law firm for everyone. But whether you’re in good health and planning ahead to create the most remarkable second half of life, or needing help finding and getting care for a parent or spouse, you can rest easier having our help.
We think that when you’re looking for a lawyer, you should find one that you’re comfortable with and believe will help you and your family through various stages of life and difficult times. At The Elderlaw Firm, we are committed to providing that lawyer for you-- along with the very best in support and customer service. Elder law is what we do, it’s who we are, and it’s the name on our building. We’re serious about helping you prepare for your future.
And we can’t wait to meet you.
