Daniel Denzer Munster
The Elder Law Practice of Daniel D. Munster was founded in 1999 after Dan spent four years representing senior citizens as a staff attorney with the Senior Citizens Law Project, a division of the Atlanta Legal Aid Society. Since its founding, the firm has been dedicated to representing clients in matters involving complex nursing home Medicaid planning, eldercare planning, long-term care planning, Veteran’s Aid & Attendance planning, and special needs planning. We help our clients understand and navigate the ever-changing state and federal regulations governing eligibility for the Medicaid and VA programs which help with the immense cost of home health care, assisted living care, and nursing home care. Along with Medicaid and Veterans Benefits planning, the firm can also assist with estate planning and planning for disability through powers of attorney or special needs trusts. While the firm’s office is in Atlanta, our practice extends throughout the entire state of Georgia.
