Faith, Family, and the Farm
Great Things are Worth Protecting

Welcome to Huizenga Law Firm, P.C.

What We Do

Welcome to Huizenga Law,  Northwest Iowa’s elder law and estate planning firm where every client is like family. We feel called to put 1 Timothy 5 into practice: “Do not rebuke an older man, but encourage him as you would a father. Treat younger men as brothers, older women as mothers, and younger women as sisters.” At Huizenga Law every client is like family, and we take care of our family.

Some people refer to us as an estate planning attorney, elder law attorney, Medicaid planning attorney, nursing home planning attorney, or a long-term care planning attorney, but they all mean the same thing.  It means we help you plan for your healthcare and finances both while you are living and after you pass away.

At Huizenga Law, we don’t spread our energy and efforts over a wide variety of areas. Instead, our legal team focuses on elder law and estate planning only. We set the bar high through our ethical, efficient, and effective counsel and the meaningful relationships we build with our clients and the community by insisting upon regular, honest communication with our clients during every step of our unique LegacyGuardTM planning process.

Sometimes open communication means having difficult conversations or asking hard questions. Our legal team promises to ask those questions and listen to the answers with the Christian principles of empathy and caring. We’ll laugh with you, and we’ll cry with you. Our law office is as safe and private as your own home, so you can feel comfortable sharing your hopes and dreams as well as your fears and concerns.

If you’re here because you need help planning for or navigating the difficult transitions that come as we age, you came to the right place. Welcome to the Huizenga Law family.

Medicaid Planning

Paying for long-term care without going broke.

If you or a loved one has experienced a sudden illness or serious accident, you understand how abruptly everything changes. Are you or a loved one suddenly in need of nursing home care? Finding and affording quality care on short notice can be stressful and draining. Our legal team at the Huizenga Law Firm, P.C. can help you determine the best options for care and how to qualify for Iowa Medicaid to help finance them.

Elder Law

Wisdom. Stewardship. Peace of mind.

Are you – or is someone you love – in the 70% of people over 65 that will eventually need long-term care? If so, where would you want to live? Who will take care of you? How will you pay for it? Through our trademark LegacyGuard process, our team will help you navigate Medicare, Medicaid, and the VA Aid and Attendance Pension benefit then create a plan that ensures the best care is available and provides for your loved ones – even if you can’t.

Estate Planning

Leave a powerful legacy focused on your wishes.

At Huizenga Law, we’ll help create or update your estate plan with revocable and irrevocable trusts, wills, durable financial powers of attorney, healthcare powers of attorney, living wills, trust amendments and restatements, codicils, and more. But we’re more than just scriveners. What’s more important to us is that you get a plan that accomplishes your goals.
