Elder law focuses on aging and disabled persons. They assist older and disabled persons to legally navigate through the issues of life that arise due to age or disability. The goal of Elder law is to strengthen and secure the legal autonomy, quality of life, and quality of care for elderly and disabled persons. Elder law attorneys handle a wide range of legal matters affecting an older or disabled person, including issues related to health care, long term care planning, guardianship/conservatorship, retirement, Social Security, Medicare/Medicaid, and other important matters. Elder law attorneys assist with life care planning (powers of attorney and advance medical directives), estate planning (wills and trusts), special needs planning for disabled children, probate and trust administration.
