Collins & Kruse Law Office.
Protecting What Matters Most and Getting the Benefits you Deserve.

Attorneys Jackie Collins and Wren Kruse have a combined 20 years of Elder Law and Estate Planning experience. Collins & Kruse Law Office is a Veteran-owned law firm located in Old Hilliard that also takes cases from all over the state of Ohio focusing on the areas of Estate Planning, Probate, Guardianship, Mesothelioma and Elder Law.

Elder Law within Collins & Kruse is primarily three areas: First, Preplanning, establishing a course of action before a crisis occurs. This includes getting your powers of attorney completed to avoid a possible guardianship. Also, completing a Last Will and Testament to streamline the probate process or creating a trust to avoid probate altogether. A proper estate plan completed well before a crisis occurs can protect almost all of your assets from the government and nursing homes.
Second, is VA Aid and Attendance benefits. This benefit is available to Veterans and Surviving Spouses of Veterans to help pay for their medical expenses. This benefit ranges from $1,244 to $3,072 a month.

Our third area of Elder Law focuses on Medicaid Crisis Planning. If you or a loved are faced with entering a nursing home (sometimes Assisted Living as well) Collins & Kruse can help preserve assets even at the last minute. You do not have to lose your house or spend down your entire life’s savings to get proper care. On average we can save 90% to 95% of assets for a married couple (where one spouse is not going onto Medicaid) and an average of 25% to 45% for single individuals.
