Joe Motta, Estate Planning & Elder Law Attorney

"My name is Joe Motta and I am an estate planning an elder law attorney. What I do is help people protect their family and their assets in the event of death or incapacity, so I have folks that come in who just want to be prepared. In the event they pass away they want to make sure their family receives their assets with a minimum of hassle.  Or if they become incapacitated, they want to be sure that their affairs can be managed without seeking court supervision."

Long Term Care Planning

"And another big part of my practice is dealing with folks who are going into nursing homes. The cost of nursing homes is about $8,000 to $10,000 a month. Most people can go broke very quickly paying these costs and then they have to apply for Medicaid. So I help people preserve their assets and still qualify for Medicaid. For example, if you have a husband and wife, the husband suffers a stroke and goes into a nursing home, we want to preserve money so that that wife can live at home comfortably for the rest of her life.
And then we have folks who may be in their 70s and they are concerned about maybe needing a nursing home sometime later in life, so we help them set up their assets in such a way that they can preserve most of them in the event of a stroke or other catastrophic medical event happening."

Probate & Estate Administration Attorney

"Then we also deal with probate. Folks who passed away, and their loved ones left them property by way of will, needs to go through the probate court. to be administered in that way and we help them guide through that process. "

Your Local Avon Lake Estate Planning & Elder Law Attorney

"I opened an office here, in Avon Lake, about five years ago.  My law office was in downtown Cleveland but I live in Avon Lake and love the community. I would go to a lot of Avon Lake Chamber of Commerce events. When people would ask me "where is your office?".  When I told them it’s in downtown Cleveland, nobody wanted to go downtown Cleveland. I know we have a great population here in Avon Lake and I thought why not serve people right here in the community I love. And it’s been great and people have really responded favorably to that.
I think people like working with us because they are dealing with me. you’re not dealing with that large firm. You get the personal attention. I am available when people have questions. They call me all the time so I am here constantly and always available. I think it’s a very friendly relationship I have with my clients. Clients consider me a friend. When they need advice in particular matters, even if it isn’t related to estate planning they still call me and get some advice and if I can’t help them I always point them in the right direction and refer them to someone I trust."
