Jason Neufeld is consistently recognized as a top Florida elder care lawyer among his peers in Florida Trend Magazine’s Legal Elite, Avvo, or Super Lawyers Magazine (2012-2021). Jason is committed to assisting and protecting the most vulnerable members of society. Jason's elder law focus is on Medicaid Planning, Incapacity Planning and Estate Planning (the firm assists with uncontested guardianships and probate matters as well). Elder Law and Medicaid-Planning related issues such as: incapacity planning, Medicaid ICP (to pay for nursing home care), Medicaid Waiver (long term care in home or in an assisted-living facility) planning, special needs trusts, or assisting with guardianships, probate and fighting long-term care insurance denials.
MEDICAID PLANNING: As a Florida Medicaid-planning lawyer, I am often people's first point of entry into the long-term care system. Most people do not realize that Medicaid is not just for the poor or impoverished. Generally, my clients who need Medicaid planning are middle class or upper-middle class people who have saved their entire lives for retirement, only to be shocked and dismayed at the incredibly high cost of long-term care (e.g. home health care, ALF care or skilled nursing home care). I help people not only afford these services, but direct them to different community resources to make their lives better. This is a great honor. ESTATE PLANNING: Estate Planning is a broad term that encompasses many different strategies and documents necessary in order to be prepared for the future. Having a detailed estate plan in place helps make sure that in the event of your incapacitation or death, your wishes are carried out and your family is taken care of.
