Elder Law

Elder Law

Elder Law ​is an area of the law that advocates for the elderly and their loved ones. It handles a wide range of legal matters affecting an older or disabled person, including issues related to health care, long term care planning, guardianship, retirement, Social Security, Medicare/Medicaid, and other important matters.

In addition, modern estate planning also includes “life” planning through powers of attorney and health care proxies, which enable someone to act on your behalf in the event of your incapacity. Understanding the following terms is the first step toward planning your estate; however, no estate planning steps should be taken without consulting with a qualified elder law attorney or professional.
