One primary area of expertise is Elder Law. Elder law is an area of law that specializes on issues that the aging population will face. Elder law planning is important in preparing for financial freedom and autonomy through proper financial planning and long-term care options.

Many people confuse elder law with estate planning. While the two practices are similar, the main difference lies in that elder law focuses on what happens while you are alive and estate planning focuses on what happens after your passing.

Elder law attorneys handle an assortment of legal issues that affect older and disabled people. These topics may include: 

  • Health care
  • Long term care planning
  • Guardianship
  • Social Security
  • Medicaid eligibility
  • Other important affairs

It is important to hire an elder law attorney as they will serve as an advocate for older clients and their loved ones. These attorneys are well versed in advocating for the rights of seniors, and can provide assistance in navigating the federal, state, and local laws and regulations.
