Elder Law Services Tailored to Your Needs and Goals

Elder law planning can be as simple as creating a last will and testament, but often includes a complete estate and incapacity plan involving multiple pieces such as wills, trusts, advanced directives, and Medicaid planning.

At the Offices of Rooth & Rooth Elder Law Attorneys, we assist clients in Seminole and the surrounding area of St. Petersburg with all aspects of elder law. In addition to helping clients make educated decisions about their estates and long-term care, we also assist families with probate and other administration matters following the death of a loved one.
