New Batavia law practice specializes in elder law

Published: Wednesday, April 2, 2014 9:07 p.m. CDT

BATAVIA – Batavia resident Nancie Dorjath has opened a new law practice that caters to the needs of an aging population that continues to grow.

The Dorjath Law Center, which recently opened at 106 W. Wilson St., Suite 3, in downtown Batavia, specializes in elder law and deals with such issues as general estate planning, estate and trust administration, Medicaid planning, veteran benefits planning, special needs planning, wills, trusts and nursing home contract review.

“We’re all living longer,” Dorjath said. “We all have to think about our long-term care needs. This is an area that helps people address those long-term care needs.”

Growing up, Dorjath said her grandmother lived with her in their family home.

“She was not only a wonderful grandparent, but also a mentor who taught me a lot about life and most importantly that senior citizens have a lot to offer,” Dorjath said. “I wanted to go into law from a young age, and I guess I gravitated towards elder law because of my relationship with my grandmother.”

Dorjath has 17 years of experience as a practicing attorney and has lived in Batavia for almost 18 years.

Dorjath and her husband, Dave, raised a family in Batavia. Dorjath said it was important for her to open an office in Batavia.

“We’re part of this community,” she said. “We are rooted in this community, and I think this is a service that’s needed in this community.”

Dorjath Law Center also operates another office at 1301 W. 22nd St., Suite 603, Oak Brook.

“It was important for me to have these offices that could service multiple locations and make clients feel at home in their community,” Dorjath said.
