Welcome to Keston Law

The team at J.A. Keston Law, PLLC is highly qualified and dedicated to the practice of Elder Law, Estate Planning and Asset Protection.  Our practice is a blend of these three areas, making our services unique and comprehensive.

Life Care Planning is something we do throughout our lives.  Once we reach middle age, our Life Care Planning should incorporate planning for old age, and potential incapacity and long-term care needs.  About 75% of us believe that we will not need long-term care.…surprisingly, about the same number of us will need nursing care during our lifetimes, with an average nursing home stay of 3 years!

At Keston Law we often help people in crisis, but we advise our clients to take the necessary steps in advance to plan for the aging process and special needs.  In this way our clients can implement better strategies, preserve their assets and meet their goals.
