Elder Law Attorneys Serving Montgomery County & Surrounding Areas
For Jeffrey Hammond, the practice of Elder Law is personal. Jeff’s many years of experience in law and business did not prepare him for the crisis he faced in 2005 and 2006 when his father suffered a stroke and both of his parents suffered from dementia and other medical problems. At that time, Jeff began an important but painful journey navigating the options and opportunities concerning treatment, care and legal matters.
Personal Experience with Elder Law
“Not only did I watch the suffering and difficulties experienced by my aging parents,” said Jeff, “but I also learned first-hand about the tremendous burdens placed on those who must deal with problems and make decisions when a family is in crisis. Living through this difficult and painful time, I realized that I could help others by focusing on the needs of the elderly and disabled.”
Jeff is a professor at Montgomery College, teaching a course all about estates and trusts.
Jeff graduated from the University of Delaware with a degree in civil engineering. He received his Juris Doctorate from the University of Maryland School of Law in Baltimore. He is licensed to practice law in Maryland and in Washington, DC.
Practice Areas—Elder Law, Estate Planning, Medicaid, & More!
Jeff assists his clients in the areas of long-term care planning, Medicaid asset preservation, estate planning, guardianship, trusts and estate administration. He helps clients and their families determine eligibility for benefits to which they are entitled. At the same time, he works with them to implement sound strategies to preserve client assets and resources. Jeff works to protect the quality of life, financial security and independence of individuals and families. He believes in compassionate advocacy for the aging, the disabled and their families.
“I know that many of the decisions associated with long-term care and other types of planning are complex and difficult. Yet if these decisions are not made the result may be that important and very personal choices are made by someone else, possibly by someone who is not a family member. We work with our clients to create safeguards so that important decisions are made in accordance with their wishes.”
