What is Elder Law?

An Introduction to Elder Law.

One question many of our clients ask us is, “What is Elder Law?”

The answer is: Elder Law is complex and multi-layered, addressing numerous realms of law.


Why do you need an Elder Law Attorney?

Elder Law encompasses a variety of legal issues designed to protect the elderly and their families.

As you or your loved ones age, numerous changes will take place. Some of these changes mean you may require Elder Law Attorneys to provide services such as:

  • Advance Directives
  • Estate Planning (wills, trusts)
  • Guardianship
  • Probate Estate after a loved one has passed away
  • Advocacy for the elderly
  • Planning for long-term care
  • Protection against elderly abuse


What to Look for When Hiring an Attorney.

When hiring an attorney, it is important to find one experienced and knowledgeable in the practice of Elder Law who can help make important decisions for you and your family members.
