Hale Law Hailed as a Top Elder Law Firm by Newsweek

Jun 1, 2012

The Hale Law Firm has long prided itself on its excellent elder law, one of the most difficult aspects of the legal profession. Fewer than 5% of all estate planning attorneys practice in this field.

And The Hale Law Firm has been cited for being among the best of the best in the industry. The Hale Law Firm was named by Newsweek in its June 18 issue as one of the leading elder law attorneys in the country, joining 10 other elder firms in this prestigious honor.

One of the big reasons for The Hale Law Firm’s success in elder law is every one of the Hale team has been a caregiver to an elderly relative, so the firm understands this can be a trying time. At The Hale Law Firm, the motto is “Wise and Compassionate Counsel” is more than just a slogan, it’s what we’re known for.” That the firm has been cited for its work by a publication which has been nationally-known for decades proves the point loud and clear.

“We are very honored to be featured in Newsweek’s publication,” said John D. Hale of The Hale Law Firm, D.C. “Our elder law practice focuses primarily on developing and implementing asset protection plans for families struggling with chronic illness and disability.”
Hale added, “I think what makes us unique is our commitment to helping families on the implementation side of our services.

“Families are beginning to see the importance of developing a plan to address long-term care in their estate plans,” Hale said. “It really doesn’t matter how good your will or trust is if you pass away impoverished.

“Our goal is to protect our clients’ assets by accessing alternative payers for long-term care. In helping our clients avoid the unnecessary spend down of their estates, we are also finding that it is easier to find common ground among families members.”
