Kenneth P. O’Brien Attorney/Owner

My name is Ken O’Brien, and I founded River City Elder Law to help individuals and families plan for the future.  I counsel my clients on the cost of long-term care, methods of paying for such care, and how to preserve what is important to them when the need for long-term care arises.  I also help my clients exercise their right to control important health care decisions through a living will and advanced medical directive.  Finally, I enable my clients to pass their assets on to their loved ones or a favorite charity through a will.  I conduct all client visits at their home or office.

How can I help you?  Call me at 502-509-4635 or send me an email at ken@rivercityelderlaw.com.  I look forward to working with you.

I accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express, and personal checks.

About Pricing

My profession is not very transparent about pricing.  I cannot change that, but I can offer an alternative vision.  I believe you are entitled to know what a service costs before you decide to hire an attorney.  Consequently, I offer most services on a fixed price basis.  The price includes an initial phone conference or in-person visit to discuss your situation, followed by an in-person meeting to review your documents with you before signing, plus any revisions that may be necessary before signing.

Generally, I conduct the in-person meetings at my client’s residence, nursing home, or some other mutually convenient location.  I do not charge for travel time or mileage within Jefferson County, and will discuss the terms for traveling outside of the Louisville area at the time of the initial consultation.
