The  answer is simple . . .

Steinbacher, Goodall & Yurchak was established in 2002 by Julieanne E. Steinbacher, an attorney, gerontologist, and social worker.  The firm was started with a vision and a desire to build a law firm able to meet the needs of the elder population and those who have disabilities.

Our office not only provides comprehensive legal services, but also bridges the gap between legal services and access to long-term care and special needs benefits and services.  Our goal is to provide seniors, those who have special needs, and their families with an individualized plan to protect their assets for their spouses and future generations while providing for their immediate and long-term care needs.

The attorneys and staff at Steinbacher, Goodall & Yurchak understand the emotional and practical problems involved in coping with the long-term care needs of the elderly and those who have special needs.  That’s why we are dedicated to helping individuals and families obtain the best quality of life.  We go beyond the traditional legal framework and provide real, hands-on solutions to our clients’ needs. 

Our office is comprised of attorneys, paralegals, social workers, and administrative professionals who possess a wealth of knowledge and the compassion needed to solve difficult problems.  But most of all, the attorneys and staff at Steinbacher, Goodall & Yurchak are husbands, wives, sons, daughters, and grandchildren who know and understand the complexity and anxiety associated with handling the care and treatment of aging loved ones and those who have special needs.

Our experienced and knowledgeable team is prepared to help families take the important steps to keep their loved ones out of a nursing home, which requires proper planning. The goal is not just to obtain Medicaid to pay for nursing home costs, but also to obtain in-home care, support a caregiver, access Veterans benefits, ensure the receipt of proper Medicare benefits, protect a caregiver child, and address many other concerns brought about by elder care and disability issues.

The firm covers a wide geographic area and offers home, hospital, and nursing home visits.  For your convenience, we also offer FREE consultations.
