Mark Shalloway— president of Palm Beach elder law firm, Shalloway & Shalloway—is pleased to announce a new post on the law firm’s website. Mark Shalloway and his dedicated staff of elder law attorneys use the site’s blog and newsletter functions to keep their clients updated with the latest in the fields surrounding elder law. Shalloway’s most recent post is on new updates surrounding Florida’s Special Needs Trust Law.

As per a previous piece, recent changes to the federal law now make it so individuals with disabilities can establish their own trusts (a “first person trust”) rather than having someone set it up on their behalf. A new bill, however, makes it easier for trustees to change the terms of the trust. This means they could rewrite the terms of the trust, which may (or may not) be a good thing.

No matter what happens under the changes of the law, the staff at Shalloway & Shalloway will be there for their clients. For 30 years now, Mark Shalloway and his elder law attorneys have provided help to clients on cases big and small. During such a trying time in one’s life, it is crucial they have an attorney behind them that is passionate about their needs. The staff at Shalloway & Shalloway are those professionals.

“It really makes a difference when clients can tell their attorney wants the best for them,” Brandon Bell, a legal consultant in Oak Park, Illinois, says. “In such a trying time in one’s life, it is crucial they feel supported. Mark Shalloway and his staff provide clients with that support they crave, as well as the results they need.”

Mark Shalloway Announces “The Middle Class Guide to Medicaid Planning”

(West Palm Beach, Florida) August 23, 2018

Mark Shalloway of Shalloway & Shalloway P.A is pleased to announce the publication of “The Middle Class Guide to Medicaid Planning.” This publication covers the many questions that comes with caring for an aged loved one. The short, but detailed and easily digestible, PDF addresses when the need for aid arises, how much these programs cost, and what will or will not pay for these important resources.

In a recent interview, Shalloway reveals that the middle class do not make enough money to sustain paying for the expensive monthly costs of nursing homes while sustaining their own lives. That being said, the middle class make too much money to grant them any assistance for the government. This leads to middle class citizens running themselves poor in an attempt to pay for aid services, or simply not even getting the help they so desperately need.

The answer to their prayers is Medicaid. This guide is designed to provide assistance to the middle class, a division of the SES that Mark Shalloway feels is horribly underrepresented. With the guide, middle class citizens can easily discover what options of Medicaid planning work best for them. The guide illustrates what will and will not work along with Medicaid, and offers a great breadth of information for the reader to discover.

Along with the guide, middle class citizens should turn to a lawyer who specializes in Elder Law, such as Mark Shalloway. Mark Shalloway has worked in the realm of Elder Law for over 25 years, has served on a number of committees dedicated to elder law, and is a vocal advocate for the elder and special needs communities. His firm is dedicated to making the lives of his clients easier.
