Elder Law

Elder Law

Elder Law is an area of law that caters to the needs of older clients and those with disabilities. It encompasses areas such as:

  • Long-term care and nursing home care planning
  • Medicaid benefits eligibility planning
  • Medicare, managed care, and payment for health care
  • Social Security Disability and retirement income planning
  • Disability planning
  • Special needs trusts
  • Housing options such as assisted-living and residential homes for the aged
  • Financial & healthcare decision-making through durable powers of attorney
  • End-of-life decision-making through the use of advance directives
  • Probate and estate administration
  • Revocable living trusts and wills, etc.

Elder law is the integration of the legal system with social and medical concerns for the benefit of the senior and/or disabled client and their families. This comprises all aspects of planning, counseling, educating and advocating for clients. The practice of elder law is one that incorporates a broad understanding of aging and special needs.

As an elder law attorney specializing in this area, I am dedicated to keeping abreast of the constant changes in these areas in order to provide my clients with essential legal services and solutions.
