Elder Law Lawyers in Rapid City
While our senior citizens are among those who deserve the utmost respect in society, they don’t always receive the care they need. Elder law can be a highly complex and often frustrating field to navigate unless you have years of experience and training. Without those skills, the health and wellbeing of the oldest members of our communities may be in jeopardy.
At Monument Law, we are committed to protecting the most vulnerable individuals in Rapid City. As dedicated legal advocates, our elder law attorneys give voices to those who haven’t felt heard, protecting their rights through legally binding documents and safeguards.

Common Elder Law Issues
What are some of the legal problems we may experience as we get older? Our healthcare needs change drastically as we enter old age, but our estate may compromise our eligibility for government assistance. If we enter a nursing home, our spouse may lose the benefits they had when they were supporting us. We may need an official guardian, or we could benefit from the specific, ongoing protections provided by a trust.
Ultimately, elderly citizens have very specific needs that require the insight and experience of a highly trained legal team.
We offer a wide variety of services to address these needs, including:
- Living trusts
- Financial representation
- Retirement planning
- Disability planning
- Advance directives (i.e. living will)
- Power of attorney
- Long-term care placement
- Nursing home claims for abuse or fraud
- Patients’ rights counseling
- Medicare/Medicaid or Social Security claims
Whether you are getting older and beginning to consider whether you need these services, or you are searching for services on behalf of your elderly loved one, we are ready to provide compassionate and knowledgeable counsel and representation.
