Elder law attorneys Cooper, Adel & Associates have opened a new office in Wilmington at 70 Fairway Drive to expand and help more seniors plan for financial security.
The founder Thom L. Cooper and managing partner Mitchell J. Adel made the announcement.
Cooper, Adel & Associates attorneys work exclusively with seniors and their families to minimize taxes, avoid probate and protect their assets from potentially devastating legal and financial issues, according to a media release.
Preserving your assets is not an accident; it is the result of conscious and systematic planning, the release said.
In addition, the firm assists clients to qualify for government benefits, including helping veterans and their widows obtain benefits for which they’re entitled, the release added.
“Our clients come to us because they are worried. They want to protect their assets. They want to make it easier for their families if they become incapacitated. They want their assets to go to their heirs at their death, not the government,” said Cooper.
“It’s not just estate planning — it’s life planning,” Cooper said.
In addition to the office in Wilmington, the firm has offices in Centerburg, Lebanon and Sidney to serve its statewide client base.
“Many people think estate planning is only for the wealthy. We believe estate planning is only part of an overall life plan that all seniors should have, regardless of their wealth,” said Adel. “Everyone can benefit from a complete assessment of their situation and an honest evaluation of where they stand and what they can do to protect themselves.”
To contact the Wilmington office and set up an appointment, call 800-798-5297.
With 35 employees and four offices, Cooper, Adel & Associates has clients statewide and offers regular seminars to educate seniors on critical financial issues.
