What is Elder Law?

Elder law is a body of law focused on those legal concerns which arise as we grow older.

These concerns may include ensuring that our last Will and Testament is squared away to protect and provide for our loved ones. Or they may include planning for the possibility that at some point we may become incapable of managing our personal and medical concerns. Even planning for the possibility that age and/or illness may cause us to need additional care, beyond what our family can provide.

The objective of an Elder Law attorney is to help you maintain control over your life as you go through these transitions first and foremost by providing you with information, options, and counsel. Once you are well informed an Elder Law attorney will help you create and implement a plan specifically designed to carry out your wishes and keep you in the driver’s seat.
