The people who make The Elderlaw Firm work
We’re here to help. We focus on elder law estate planning, and we’ve done it for many years and for thousands of people in North Carolina. The Elderlaw Firm was founded on the passion that 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. For boomers and seniors The Elderlaw Firm goes 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.
