I'm Scott Collins, an Elder Law Attorney, and founder of Elder Law Guidance. I specialize in helping families save everything they have worked as they plan for their retirement years. The retirement and freedom are often saddled with anxiety and uncertainty. The high cost of health care and nursing home care can crush families. We can protect your home, retirement and savings for your children and heirs.

We are committed to helping ease the anxiety, alleviate the fear and answer your many questions.
