What is Elder Law?
Elder Law is an area of the law dedicated to addressing the very specific legal concerns of our senior population.  Generally, these issues are related to their finances, planning for long term care and other healthcare needs, planning for incapacity, and planning for wealth transfers upon the death of the senior.     

An Elder Law Attorney may assist in any one or more of the following areas:


  • Estate Planning with Wills, Trusts, and Powers of Attorney

  • Estate Planning with Healthcare Powers of Attorney, HIPPA Authorizations, and Living Wills or Advance Directives

  • Assistance with obtaining Medicaid and Veterans Benefits

  • Assistance with Medicaid and Veterans benefits planning

  • Assistance with Social Security benefits

  • Probate and Trust Administration

  • Guardianship proceedings

  • Special Needs Planning


This is an area of law which requires a great deal of dedication on the part of the attorney.  When choosing an Elder Law Attorney, look for an attorney whose primary focus is Elder Law and Estate Planning and one who has been practicing in these areas for a long time.
