INNOVATIVE APPROACH TO ELDER LAW - KNOX LAW
For Board Certified Elder Law Attorney Caroline Knox and her team at Knox Law in Hendersonville, the practice of elder law involves a holistic approach that often encompasses assisting clients with much more than just finalizing legal documents.
Knox Law is unique in Western North Carolina and throughout the state for having a multifaceted approach to helping elderly care clients and their families with legal advice as well as a variety of support services.
Caroline Knox is one of only two attorneys in the region - and one of only 16 in the state - who has received the board Certified Elder Law designation by The National Elder Law Foundation.
With more than 18 years of experience practicing law, she specializes in counseling clients about such legal matters as long-term care planning, asset preservation, Medicaid, estate planning, estate and trust administration, special needs trusts and guardianships.
MORE THAN JUST LEGAL HELP
When she founded Knox Law in early 2018, Caroline set out to help clients with not only their legal matters, but also with senior care issues relating to their well-being and daily lives.
Based on her past work with older clients, she saw a great need for a comprehensive approach to assisting aging adults, especially those with no family members nearby. Assisted Care and other elderly care issues are addressed.
With a team that includes a social worker, geriatric case manager nurse and an account specialist, Knox Law offers support services ancillary to legal services. Services include in-home care referrals and staffing, placement at care facilities, account management, insurance filing, bill paying and geriatric case management.
SUPPORTIVE SERVICES BUILT ON RELATIONSHIPS
At the request of clients or of the court, Caroline serves as guardian or power of attorney. In this capacity, Knox Law provides a range of services that can include: arranging medical appointments, managing health care and household services, paying bills, setting up an emergency contact network, making funeral arrangements and organizing an estate sale.
