Practice/Organization Description

My practice primarily focuses on the elderly and families with disabilities. This often involves the following:

1) Medicaid Planning: Protecting seniors from losing their life savings or their home if they have to spend time in an assisted living facility or nursing home;

2) Helping wartime veterans or their surviving spouses claim the VA Aid and Attendance benefits they earned, which can provide a monthly pension of over $2,000 per month to help them pay for medical care, and

3) Estate Planning - Wills, Trusts, Health Care and General Powers of Attorney, Living Wills, etc.

We also work with attorneys in assisting their clients in maintaining Medicaid benefits in preparation and filing of special needs trusts for settlements. We will meet with clients in our office, in their home, or at a care facility. We do asset protection planning, gifting/loan combination planning, file Medicaid applications and appear at Medicaid state hearings and appeals for clients’ throughout Ohio.

As part of that planning, we prepare estate planning documents, living and family trusts, special needs trusts, Medicaid trusts, and deeds, and representation of clients for guardianships and estate administration. My office services clients mainly in the central Ohio area, but we do travel to various cities/areas throughout Ohio (Delaware, Mt. Vernon, Urbana, Dayton, Lancaster, Chillicothe, to name a few).

After graduation from law school, Russell worked for a boutique estate planning firm until he opened his own practice not far from downtown Columbus in the Upper Arlington/Grandview area. He has been hired to present seminars on Medicaid Planning for other attorneys and financial professionals as well as to speak to the members and retirees of the Ohio State Teachers Retirement System on retirement planning, elder law, and estate planning issues.

Russell resides in Upper Arlington with his wife Jennifer and their two children.
