You have heard the term Elder Law countless times… but, if you’re like many people today, you probably think Elder Law is only for the elderly. When is the right time to seek the counsel of an Elder Law attorney? And why is it so important for people of all ages to have an understanding of the many elder law issues facing all of us today as we age?
What is Elder Law?
Elder Law is an area of the law that primarily deals with Advanced Planning for many of the issues that concern all of us as we grow older. These are issues such as potential incapacity, asset protection, concern over Government benefits, and, most importantly, how to strike the correct balance of empowering our loved ones to make important decisions (financial and health related) on our behalf, while, at the same time, ensuring that we maintain our independence and dignity. The field of Elder Law is constantly changing. Attorneys that practice in this area must stay ever vigilant and maintain a constant awareness of the new laws and regulations that impact all of us.
