Elder law is an area of law that involves various legal matters that affect our aging population. Elder law issues may include:
- Estate planning;
- Estate & trust administration;
- Financial abuse;
- Long-term care coordination;
- Nursing home residents’ rights;
- Real Estate;
- Social Security benefits;
- Supplemental Needs Trusts; and
- Veteran’s benefits.
An elder law attorney advocates for senior clients; assists family members with reviewing long term care contracts; drafts advanced directives and estate planning documents that include special provisions specific for older clients; and assists clients with situations that require knowledge of complicated substantive state and federal laws.
Some elder law matters include court proceedings such as guardianships. Elder law disputes can be like a divorce with more characters involved. Family members often disagree when they have to address the legal, medical, financial, social, and family issues of an aging parent. We can help a family face these challenging times.

My husband and I worked with Lenita AuBuchon on our will. The process was smooth and efficient. Lenita was there to answer any questions we had. Office location is convenient, as well as zoom calls in the time of Covid. Would definitely recommend!
Our experience with estate planning couldn’t have been much easier. We were able to meet with Melissa virtually twice, exchange multiple emails, and then complete the signing in person. Melissa was patient with my 59,402,085 questions, and I feel so relieved about having our planning complete!
An extremely kind, caring and professional team. The helped my parents with the process of establishing their trust and getting their affairs in order. They were wonderful with ensuring everything was current; quickly answering any questions or concerns that came up. When my mother recently passed Lenita guided me through the process of closing out the estate with professionalism and compassion, easing what was an emotionally challenging time. And now, Lenita and the team at AuBuchon & Pennuto Law are helping me with my affairs. I am thrilled and confident with the service I’ve received.
We couldn’t be more pleased with the services we have received. After disappointing experiences with other attorneys, we have been blessed with the assistance we have had from Melissa Pennuto and staff. Her level of communication and professionalism is exceptional.
