Prepare For The Future, Build Your Legacy

"A goal without a plan is just a wish." When it comes to long-term Medicaid and estate planning strategies, individuals who fail to prepare for the inevitable are often preparing to fail when it arrives.

I am attorney Karen Krodel. Before opening Krodel Law Office, P.C., in Jasper, Indiana, I worked for several years in the areas of finance and trust administration. I gained practical experience with the tools available for individuals and families who are seeking to protect their assets and legacies from the unbearable costs of nursing home care for themselves, an elderly parent or a spouse who can no longer live at home. You can even plan to avoid paying the costs of nursing home care.

Experienced Lawyer In All Areas Of Long-Term Care Planning

By applying my knowledge of federal Medicaid law and state regulations, as well as experience establishing trusts of all varieties, I provide a complete array of estate planning services to give you confidence that you have taken the necessary steps to protect your assets now, and in future years.

My experience with many issues in estate planning, probate and elder law includes:

  • MAP trusts for pre-planning to meet unexpected medical needs
  • Wills, will updates
  • Living trusts, irrevocable trusts, charitable trusts
  • Medicaid/Medicare planning
  • Powers of attorney
  • Health care directives
  • Guardianships/conservatorships
  • Probate administration

Your plan does not have to be complicated. Many people I work with need no more than a will, a power of attorney and a health care directive. However, wills and trusts can be tailored to meet many needs and accomplish many goals.

It takes time and careful work to develop a plan that meets your needs and goals, but the end result is worth it. Many of our clients find that planning their estates gives them peace of mind and clarity about what is really important to them.
