Fort Huachuca Elder Law Attorneys
A 2018 study by the United States Census Bureau says that by the year 2035, there will be 78 million people aged 65 years and older.

Expert ALTCS Advice And Assistance
At some point in their lives, two out of three Americans are going to need long-term care or assistance in their day-to-day living due to illness or disability. Unfortunately, not a lot of people actually plan for these times in their lives—not everyone anticipates and prepares for the time when they’d need help walking, bathing, eating, and going to the toilet. But because the transition to long-term care is complicated and expensive, planning for it early is actually the most practical way to go.
The state of Arizona has the Arizona Long Term Care System (ALTCS)—a branch of the state’s Medicaid program—which provides acute and long term care services for residents who are over 65 years old, physically or developmentally disabled, and who meet the necessary medical and financial criteria. ALTCS plays a huge role in making long-term care affordable for you and your loved ones. However, more than 70% of ALTCS applicants are turned down, most of them because of reasons that could be avoided with experienced planning and expert assistance from an attorney.
Doug Newborn Law Firm, PLLC is a trusted Fort Huachuca law firm when it comes to long-term care planning. We make it our main goal to help our clients with ALTCS eligibility, applications, asset protection, and long-term care financial arrangements.
With years of probate law knowledge and experience in both ALTCS and Medicaid planning, Doug Newborn Law Firm, PLLC is committed to helping you achieve the life and care that you deserve. You can be sure that we are ready and equipped to help you plan and prepare for them.
Guardianship & Conservatorship
Being strong and independent are some of the things most Americans strive to be for as long as they possibly can. We thrive in environments where we have control over our bodies, our living arrangements, our health, and our possessions.
Unfortunately, many Americans run into situations that render them incapable of taking care of themselves and their properties. Such situations include diseases, serious illnesses, accidents, etc. It’s in these situations that guardians and conservators are appointed or assigned to the incapacitated person—a guardian to look after their health, care, and living conditions, and a conservator to take care of their money and property.
Guardianship and conservatorship matters are highly technical and complicated, which means you need the help of an experienced attorney to navigate through them. If you want to apply for, petition for, transfer, or object to guardianship or conservatorship, we at Doug Newborn Law Firm, PLLC can provide you with the guidance, assistance, and support you need throughout the entire legal process.
Our team of accomplished elder law attorneys specialize in Title 14 of the Arizona Revised Statutes and are ready to advise, represent, and prepare with you.
