Advances in science and technology have allowed us to live longer, fuller lives. People are often living well into their 80’s and 90’s and their families face a complex set of legal and financial issues that include estate planning, asset protection, paying for long-term care and more. Elder law is a branch of law that serves the needs of the elderly and the disabled as well as their family.
Most often this includes the following legal areas:
Estate settlement, including probate and trust administration
Elder abuse, both personal and financial
Elder law is diverse, covers a variety of issues, and it can be complicated. By working with an elder law attorney, you can avoid costly mistakes such as exposing yourself, your family, and your assets to the lengthy and costly probate process and otherwise avoidable death taxes. If you or your loved one are not familiar with estate planning, it is essential you find the right type of elder law attorney.

I did some research and exploration and came upon the offices of Evergreen Elder Law. From the moment I spoke with the receptionist I felt respected, valued and regarded as an important client. I made an appointment for March 20, 2018. When I presented to their offices I spoke with someone who was sympathetic for my loss, confident that their offices could help and exuded competence. I was heartened to note that they were recognized as “Client Choice “Estate Law Office” for 2016.” And my experience with their offices made me a believer.
When my mother retired it became apparent we as a family needed help, Holland Mcburns was recommended by an acquaintance of the family. She was professional and very thorough and informative. I felt she was very up to date on the current opportunities that would best benefit my elderly mother, and make her retirement years worry free. After working with Mrs Mcburns, it was apparent that many people would benefit from her knowledge and dedication. I highly recommend her, and look forward to working with her on my estate planning.
Holland is very attentive and detail oriented. I felt well cared for, she returned calls promptly, and was always very sensitive to my needs. Holland gave me very good advice. She is very ethical and has legal services personalized to your needs.
Holland is a great listener and lawyer. When we came to her with our needs, she thoughtfully listened, was helpful with all our questions, and then explained our options. Her sense of humor helped us through some long waits with the system. In the end, we ended up with a surprisingly favorable settlement and a good friend in the courts.
