Elder Needs Law,PLLC

Elder Needs Law, PLLC, is a prominent Florida Elder Law Firm comprised of a team of compassionate and highly-skilled professionals who are committed to helping seniors and their families understand how elder law services can assist them in estate and long-term care planning.

The firm’s services encompass the ‘Elder Law Umbrella’, including Medicaid Planning, Asset Protection Planning and Asset/Wealth Preservation, Incapacity Planning, Trusts and Estate Planning, Probate, and Guardianship.

Elder Needs Law, PLLC has four physical offices in Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach County. The Firm is also proud to serve clients statewide virtually.


Our clients are Florida residents, and those relocating to the state. They have raised families, built careers, and contributed to their communities. Through hard work their entire lives, our clients have amassed savings, investments, real estate, and other assets. We seek to educate our clients so they understand the full range of government benefits to which they are entitled (either currently or those benefits that they can attain through strategic planning).

Our clients may need long-term care assistance (home care, ALF care or skilled nursing facility care). Our clients realize that their hard-earned assets need to be preserved and protected, for their ongoing care, as they progress through life stages. By preserving what they have, our clients are able to lead a higher quality of life and have more assets to pass onto their heirs.

Our clients are looking to the future and realize how important it is to plan-ahead and for the unforeseen, ill-health and disability and ensure there is a trusted family member or friend empowered to act on their behalf. Our clients understand the value of putting their affairs in order, through comprehensive Estate Planning.

Our clients want financial freedom and autonomy, through strategic advanced planning. Our clients want to work with a law firm that will provide solutions that meet their unique needs.

What People Say About Us

"Jason and his team are responsive and communicate very well. Jason helped me to get the benefits that I qualified for much faster than expected. I would recommend him highly. My case seemed complicated to me, but Jason explained everything in detail and made everything go quite smoothly. I interviewed several elderlaw attorneys prior to choosing Jason Neufeld."

"Quick turn around time for appointments, great response time, very thorough, never rushed through and soooo easy to do business with over the internet! Read the website info, very very helpful!"

“The attorney Jason and his team are amazing at planning and execution. Me and my family would not trust anyone else with our estate planning needs.”

“I've been very impressed! A friend referred me and I've experienced nothing but perfect service and professionalism. I am extremely grateful!”

“A strong recommendation for Jason Neufeld and his Elder Law firm - very professional, patient, reliable, and experienced. When my father fell terminally ill, I became responsible for his assets and finances overnight, including the daunting task to qualify him for Medicaid. I interviewed several elder law firms but was most impressed by Jason’s client approach and practices. Throughout the process, Jason and his team provided clear guidance and support to successfully complete all the new and complex tasks required as a POA, and more importantly he enabled us to quickly achieve our goals related to Medicaid and estate planning. His fees are more than reasonable for the level of due diligence and support we received.”
