WHAT IS ELDER LAW?

Did you know roughly 70% of seniors will require some form of long-term care sometime in their lifetime? Or, that about 75% of single adults or 50% of married couples will exhaust their whole life savings after only 1 year of nursing home care?* 

 

It is these type of concerns that drive elder law attorneys to provide the services we provide. Elder law can generally be defined as any legal help that specifically addresses the needs of someone in the later stages of their life. However, some aspects of what is typically considered elder law can certainly overlap with people who are not close to retirement age. Special needs planning, for example, frequently intersects with elder law, and has little to do with the age of those involved. 

 

More important than the definition of elder law is how it may be able to help you and your family.
