Practice Area Experience

Mr. Roa is the managing attorney for The Law Offices of Adam J. Roa, P.C. Guest lecturer: “The Medicaid Process, Traps and Pitfalls”, “Maryland Guardianship Process.” Presentations: “Elder Care – Nursing Homes: Legal documents that should be in place prior to entering nursing homes”; “Powers of Attorney and Advanced Directives: Problems and Power Areas; and “Estate Planning and Elder Care: Protecting assets from nursing home costs.”

Practical advice is key to our practice. There are often various layers of complexity for elder law situations. It is our job to sort through the complexity and provide a road map and guidance through an often critical juncture in their parent’s lives.

This firm started in 2002 and focused only on elder law issues from day one.

Trial Experience

We have been involved in litigation in over one hundred (100) elder law cases.  The vast majority of those cases were successful.  Significant trial experience.
