Elder Law


The law offices of David Blocher will help you navigate the medical, financial, and legal challenges associated with your aging or disability or that of a parent, spouse, or child.

The firm was founded by David Blocher, a decorated Vietnam veteran who also interned with the U.S. Attorney’s office during law school.  David knows the meaning of dedication, honesty, integrity, and service to others. He realizes that many soldiers who served with him and those that followed later,  are now at a point in their lives where they are in need of more specialized legal care. David understands the concerns of his elderly clients and knows that aging brings with it many financial, medical, and legal complexities that can be confusing. Having dealt with the V.A. both personally and for his clients, he is aware of what it takes to get the V.A. to perform as it should.  At the Law Offices of David Blocher, we can help make this transition easier and much less stressful.

Estate law is concerned with the preparation of the estate including Wills, trusts, and matters of probate. We offer these services to clients of all ages and sometimes these legal matters are a part of elder law. Additional areas where we offer our assistance  include domestic partnerships, guardianship, benefits, health care decisions, powers of attorney, durable power of attorney for health care, and more.

Planning for the future

It is important to plan for the future in order to protect your family members from having to make difficult decisions during already stressful times. Instead of placing the burden on them to plan your care and property distribution, you can have a say in these decisions by arranging your affairs before the need arises. Often we work with clients who are completely unaware of what their aging relatives wanted.  More often than I would like, I have had first contact with a client when there is a dispute among the children, or second spouse versus step children, over burial versus cremation.

We are dedicated to working hard to determine the course of action that will best serve the needs of your family in any circumstance. When you have concerns and questions, we are here to offer guidance and support.
