What is Elder Law ?
Rather than being defined by technical legal distinctions, Elder Law is defined by the client to be served. “Elder Law” is the legal practice of counseling and representing older persons and their representatives about the legal aspects of health and long-term care planning, including Medicaid payments for long term care, decision making upon the senior’s incapacity, through the use of Durable Powers of Attorney and Trusts, Asset preservation to protect a community spouse or a legacy for the family, transfer of assets upon death through the use of Trusts or probate. In other words, the lawyer who practices elder law may handle a range of issues but has a specific type of client–seniors.
