Attorney Joseph McHugh and his staff are dedicated to providing comprehensive, highly personalized services in all aspects of our clients' needs. They cannot stress enough the importance of setting up an appropriate estate or asset protection plan in advance but are ready to jump into action in emergency situations!

We are a great resource for local San Fernando Valley Residents, as well as out-of-town family members that are worried about their aging parents or relatives living in or near the Los Angeles Area. Our Los Angeles estate planning & elder law attorneys offer personalized expertise in legal asset protection with the following services:

Asset Protection -  a wide range of services protecting your assets… from individuals owning risky businesses that need options that include off shore asset protection trusts to our main business of helping seniors pay for nursing home care with Medi-CAL services by legally moving assets.

LA LAW Center has many years of successfully helping clients with assets qualify for Medi-CAL Nursing Home benefits and protect the family home from Medi-CAL Estate Recovery!

**Qualifying for Medi-CAL Long Term Care Benefits (nursing home care) especially when the ill person has too many assets. California allows for legal asset gifting into an irrevocable trust to qualify for Medi-CAL, including additional properties!

** Protecting the family house from Medi-CAL Estate Recovery, so it can be passed down to the beneficiaries upon death… not paying Medi-CAL back!

Estate Planning - Living Trusts, Irrevocable Trusts, Wills, Power of Attorneys, Advanced Health Care Directive, Pet Trusts, etc.

Probate Administration - for individuals that die in Los Angeles County with more than $40,000 in real estate and/or $150,000 in liquid assets and must go through the Los Angeles County Probate Court. We help expedite the process.

Disability Planning – planning for inheritance or settlements so that Medi-CAL will stay in place.

1st Party Special Needs Trusts for persons under the age of 65 years old – new laws allow a person to set their own Special Needs Trust to put an inheritance or settlement into which will prevent loss of Medi-CAL.

3rd Party Special Needs Trusts – trusts set up by parents with special needs children to get inheritance or gifts and remain on Medi-CAL and other government benefits.

We offer free consultations by phone, in our office or concierge services by meeting homebound clients at home or in the hospital. Just call (818) 241-4238!

We are not a stuffy pretentious law office. We pride ourselves on offering a friendly warm guest service style to our clients and always have a hot cup of coffee or tea ready when you visit our office!

We understand that many are very nervous about walking into a law office. We want you to feel at home when you walk in our door and have designed our offices to be very warm and comfortable, as well as have a trained staff to make you feel like our special VIP guest!

However, as comfortable and friendly as we are with our clients, we are quite prepared to protect you aggressively in a legal battle when necessary! WE "ARMOR UP" WHEN NEEDED!

After a thorough review of the best strategies for your legal needs and our fees for the scope of work, we will structure a comprehensive legal plan created specifically to protect you and allow you to stay in control of your life and your money and stay on government benefit programs.
