Attorney Samuel V. Butcher, Esq., RPh, CELA, has represented clients’ needs throughout the Strongsville area for more than 25 years. Butcher Elder Law maintains the resources of a large firm with the personal service and cost-sensitivity of a small firm. In many situations, Butcher Elder Law charges a flat fee for services, regardless of the time worked.

What Sets Him Apart From Others

While other firms may offer services such as estate planning, probate, or Medicaid planning, they are not a primary area of focus.  Sam and his team are fully dedicated solely to Elder Law.  This means day in and day out, they prepare trusts, wills, powers of attorney, healthcare directives, apply for long-term care Medicaid, plan for VA benefits, help with guardianships, facilitate probate estates, and administer trusts.

Not many Certified Elder Law Attorneys are also Registered Pharmacists.  Sam uses his knowledge and skills in these areas to serve his clients uniquely.  One of the significant advantages that Sam offers is his CELA distinction. The certification process for this from the National Elder Law Foundation is renowned for its difficulty and rigorousness. He earned this distinction through his years of experience, higher commitment to his clients, continued legal education in elder law, and stellar recognition from his peers.

This qualification process ensures that Butcher Elder Law offers legal representation from someone who offers sound guidance and effective resolutions of your matter.

Get The Representation You Need

Butcher Elder Law’s strategic estate planning is designed to prevent long-term care from wiping out your estate. Butcher Elder Law is dedicated to protecting families and their assets during life while avoiding the common mistakes that lead to impoverishment and even bankruptcy.

Without proper planning, an unrecognized or unanticipated gap in planning could place your assets in the hands of a court, a child’s estranged spouse, the government, or an unintended beneficiary. Effective estate planning is much more than willing money to family members after you die; it’s about maintaining control of your life and assets while alive.

Don’t trust your estate to an internet template or a general-practice attorney. Talk to Butcher Elder Law and learn why small mistakes can have major consequences.

Without the guidance of an attorney, you risk making mistakes in your estate planning that can cost you time or the results you need. Let someone who knows what you are trying to achieve guide you to the outcome you deserve.

Please call us at 440-268-8284 or message us online to see how we can help you with your estate planning, Medicaid, probate, guardianship, VA planning, or asset protection matters.
