Elder Law Attorney
Elder law attorneys, through their practice, promote and protect the rights, health and economic well-being, and general welfare of older adults and people with disabilities. They offer legal help to meet these specific goals. Naturally, this includes developing strategies to protect against potential future incapacity, finding long-term care solutions, and qualify for government benefits. Elder law also includes developing a plan for the final disposition of your estate.
