About Elder Law Services, PLLC
What is Elder Law Services, PLLC? Elder Law Services, PLLC is a law firm that focuses on serving seniors and their families navigate the waters of aging. These waters may or may not include: dealing with physical disabilities, cognitive challenges, asset protection, distribution of assets at death, delegation of the ability to make health care decisions and financial decisions, providing for a disabled child, paying for the care of a aging loved one, and understanding that the “money issues” are only part of issues at hand and may not be the most important at any one point in time. Elder Law Services, PLLC makes a concerted effort to help families focus on the whole picture of what is happening around them and help them see the priorities for them include both legal and personal matters.
The History of Elder Law Services, PLLC had its start as “David P. Fitch, Attorney at Law” in 1992 as a part time practice to help the elderly in several of the high rises in South Minneapolis. Humble beginnings with landlord tenant issues, advance directive issues, and a few wills. The practice took shape and focus in West Palm Beach, FL in the early 2000’s: basic estate planning, asset protection work for medicaid applicants, and lots of guardianship work as a court appointed guardian. Back in Minnesota in 2004, elder law was the full focus of the practice, as it is today. The firm name changed to Elder Law Services, PLLC in October 2007.
Today, Elder Law Services, PLLC has two attorneys serving elders and their families – David Fitch and Theresa Johnson. Elder Law Services, PLLC (and its predecessor) has operated in the “community” since 2005. We serve clients where they are most comfortable – homes, care facilities, restaurants, coffee shops, where ever the client chooses.
We place a high value on education and as a result we do a lot of “no pitch” public speaking for churches, community centers, businesses, and care facilities.
