Welcome! 

Thank you for stopping by.  Our practice primarily focuses on the elderly and families with disabilities.  This is a rather new field in the legal arena known as Elder Law.  We work to obtain Medicaid eligibility for the elderly and disabled.  We also work with attorneys to create special needs trusts so their clients can maintain Medicaid benefits after receiving settlement proceeds.  We do asset protection planning, file Medicaid applications and appear at Medicaid state hearings and appeals for clients’ throughout Ohio.

As part of that planning, we prepare estate planning documents, living and family trusts, special needs trusts, Medicaid trusts, and deeds.  We also represent clients for guardianships and estate administration.  My office services clients mainly in the central Ohio area, but we do travel to various cities/areas throughout Ohio (Delaware, Mt. Vernon, Urbana, Dayton, Lancaster, Chillicothe, to name a few). We will meet with clients in our office, in their home, or at a care facility. 

Approximately 80% of our clients are referrals from attorneys throughout the State of Ohio, and through our memberships with the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA), the Ohio State Bar Association (OSBA), the Columbus Bar Association (CBA), and other affiliations such as Alzheimer’s Support Group, Gerlach Center, Central Ohio Area Agency on Aging (COAAA), etc.  Our remaining clients are referrals from existing clients.

We have 28 years of experience serving the elderly and disabled communities.
If you are an individual in need of an elder law attorney, please use the contact us form and one of our attorneys will get back with you.  If you are an attorney and want to discuss a client referral or a settlement trust to obtain or maintain Medicaid benefits or another matter, please email us with facts on the case.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Richard T. Taps, Maggie L. Sutton, and Jessica N. Roshon
