Attorney Sweet helps his aging clients by working with them to navigate the complexities of a comprehensive care-plan designed to meet his clients' goals of receiving necessary care while generally preserving assets for a spouse, children, family or charities.  When possible, Allan likes to plan with clients before needs arise because it provides the best opportunity to meet his clients' goals.  When that isn't possible, he can help make the best of the adversity that aging sometimes presents unexpectedly.
