Legal Practices of Law Office of Catherine Leas P.C.
Catherine Leas, P.C. is a Sun City Elder and Special Needs solo practice creating customized estate planning solutions tailored to meet the client’s needs. Every client and every case is unique as are the solutions we help clients create and implement. We analyze each client’s situation to determine the most effective plan, choosing from the various alternatives offered by Arizona Law, including simple or complex Wills, revocable living trusts, beneficiary deeds, using transfer-on-death or pay-on-death designations, financial powers of attorney, and health care directives, including health care powers of attorney, mental health powers of attorney, and living wills. For clients who want to leave funds to disabled beneficiaries who are eligible for income or resource sensitive public benefits, such as the Social Security Agency’s Supplemental Security Income or the Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System’s Long Term Care System (ALTCS), we can create a special needs trust either within the client’s living trust or as a separate trust. We also create solutions for funding long term care needs, including eligibility for Arizona Long Term Care System (ALTCS) and the Veteran’s Aid & Attendance Pension. We also represent trustees and personal representatives administering decedent’s estates and trusts.
