Over the course of my 25-plus-year legal career in San Diego, I have worked with many families facing difficult circumstances, where court supervision of their affairs is imminent because they have no plan in place. When I founded The Law Offices of Sallie Manley, I did so to help clients deal with the legal challenges that result when the unexpected occurs and court supervision of a person or estate or both is a distinct possibility because no proactive plan is in place. By carefully listening to clients and assessing choices available to them, I can tailor legal representation to meet their specific needs.
Putting Together The Right Planning Strategy
When certain health challenges emerge, many clients have concerns and need specific information about how they will pay for care, whether the care is long-term care, or in-home care, or outpatient rehabilitation services. When certain planning strategies are in place or when information about certain resources is available, I am able to help clients find a solution when there is tension between ongoing costs of care and preservation of quality of life. In these situations, as in all areas of estate planning, I counsel clients on common ethical concerns: how to avoid conflicts of interest and minimize the risk of self-dealing by fiduciaries; how to avoid triggering a presumption of undue influence when arranging compensation for care custodians and other fiduciaries. Clearly, sound legal advice in this area is always a priority to protect you and your beneficiaries.
