Welcome to Calvin Curtis, Attorney at Law, PLLC
We are Utah’s premier law firm for elder law issues and special needs trusts. We have helped hundreds of clients – just like you – obtain Medicaid and other assistance to help a spouse or parent pay for nursing home care. And we have provided estate planning services and special needs trusts to hundreds of additional individuals with disabilities and to families with children with disabilities.
We also handle a variety of additional legal matters, including guardianship and conservatorship petitions; traditional estate planning services (wills and trusts); estate and trust administration, including probate and estate and trust litigation; Medicaid estate recovery claims; veteran’s benefits; claims involving financial exploitation of seniors; and contested federal tax matters.
Whenever you open a financial account, you’re almost always asked to name a beneficiary. Simply stated, a beneficiary of the account is someone who is entitled to the benefits of the account, typically, on the death of the account holder. If you’ve purchased life insurance, for example, you name a beneficiary who receives the benefits of the policy when you pass.
Caregiving for a family member can be time-consuming and emotionally draining. It can also be financially draining.
Talking about death makes most of us uncomfortable, so we don’t plan for it. That’s a big mistake, because if you don’t have an end-of-life plan, your state’s laws decide who gets everything you own.
