Elder law is an area of legal practice that places an emphasis on the aforementioned issues that affect our aging population. Elder law covers all aspects of planning for aging, illness, and incapacity. Lawyers who practice elder law are skilled in counseling clients on their best options for the future, which benefit not only the client, but their families as well.

It is no longer enough to simply prepare a basic will. With the passing of a loved one, come extremely complex issues including probate court, taxes, state limitations and regulations, and administrative fees. A good estate plan compiled by an estate planning professional will consider all possible scenarios, so that you and your loved ones are protected in the event of an unexpected occurrence.
