Your Future Is Our Concern

Since our founding in 1998, Law Offices of Luis E. Barreto & Associates, P.A. has helped thousands of people make sound decisions regarding their estates, retirement financing, health insurance, and other elder law matters.

We start the decision-making process by learning about the client’s financial situation, family situation and values. We know that the right solution for you must be tailored to meet your needs and provide the peace of mind for you, your children, and the rest of your loved ones.

Medicaid Planning

Changes in the law have made it more difficult for people to qualify for Medicaid (which can pay for nursing home care). However, in many cases it is still possible to keep your assets or pass them on to others while still qualifying for Medicaid. Our firm will carefully analyze your financial situation and—if it is possible—design a personalized plan which achieves your objectives and preserves your assets.
