Archer Law Office, LLC

is a central Jersey law firm focusing exclusively on the needs of those who care for seniors, veterans, and people with disabilities.

Medicaid Planning and Applications

Medicaid is designed to ease the burden of paying for long-term care, but it can be very complicated to navigate the system and very costly if you do not succeed. The State has implemented regulations to govern eligibility for these programs but their interpretation often varies by county and even by caseworker. Archer Law Office, LLC has experience filing a large number of applications annually in the majority of New Jersey counties, so we know what the caseworker is going to ask for even before they do. We can often spot and anticipate issues, leading to a more cooperative exchange of ideas. Our attorneys also have experience advocating for different interpretations of regulations, and appealing unfavorable decisions that other people receive when they try the applications on their own.

The staff of Archer Law Office, LLC provides a full range of services and supports to caregivers through central New Jersey.

Archer Law Office is here to help  Caregivers and their loved ones throughout Central New Jersey.

Our team consists of three attorneys, support staff, and a care consultant, who combine to create an unmatched resource for seniors and their caregivers in central New Jersey. The team is led by Carl Archer, an attorney designated as a Certified Elder Law Attorney by the ABA-accredited National Elder Law Foundation, and the current President of the New Jersey chapter of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys. Carl is known as a resourceful, aggressive attorney who is equally comfortable constructing a complex asset plan and trying a contested guardianship case. The firm does not encourage litigation, but is uniquely prepared to advocate for its clients when litigation is necessary. Meanwhile, in the office, the legal staff boasts the services of a Medicaid paralegal who has filed hundreds of Medicaid applications throughout Mercer, Middlesex, Monmouth, Burlington, and Camden counties, among others, in the past several years. All of the legal work which the firm contracts to do is performed in-house and is never delegated or outsourced. The firm routinely handles a variety of probate, special needs, and guardianship matters for clients in any stage of their relationship with their loved ones. When clients come to the firm in need of immediate practical assistance, Archer Law Office, LLC is also proud to be associated with Tom Callahan, the firm’s Director of Senior Living Resources, whose work with the firm comes with his nearly 20 years of experience in all facets of senior living from design to operations to sales to administration, in addition to a private practice advising families in crisis. The combination of legal personnel and a solutions-minded crisis staff allows the firm to act as a full-service resource for seniors in the area, with a combination of resources and affordability no other firm can match.
