About the Presenter
Thomas W. McCulloch, JD, CPA
As an experienced elder law attorney and certified public accountant (CPA), Tom McCulloch is well-known for providing sound legal advice affecting the elderly. He is grounded in a conviction that aging need not be a bewildering maze of care and cost challenges. He is a planner and advocate for clients who want to have choice about their living and care issues as they age.
Tom's experience includes a personal journey when he faced care and financial planning for his mother. While working with doctors, nursing homes, home health agencies, and social workers, he learned first-hand that there are few independent advocates for the elderly. Everyone has an opinion and agenda regarding "What's best for Mom." There are few counselors who can address the total picture of financial, legal, medical and social issues that together dictate the care options for an aging elder.
The practice of Weiner & McCulloch, PLLC is distinctive because it encompasses not only legal and asset protection planning, but also critical social and care planning. The planning goal is to also address clearly the personal wishes of the elder and family.
The cornerstone of the practice is Life Care Planning, which is a comprehensive plan for navigating the senior years. It includes legal instruments, financial budgets and care plans that answer the pressing questions: "How can I stay independent? How can I afford the care and living arrangements I need? Who will help make me make decisions as I age?" These important questions are managed by the legal team with the family to provide the most cost-efficient and effective options available.
