What is an Elder Law Attorney?
An Elder Law Attorney represents elder clients and family members in a broad practice area covering issues involving everything from basic estate planning to long term care, asset protection, probate, conservatorships, nursing home and financial abuse litigation. It is not defined so much by the legal subjects it covers but by the population it serves.
Elder law requires an understanding of many areas of law, including Medi-Cal and Medicare, Social Security, tax planning, mental health law, estate planning, conservatorships, administration and management of various kinds of trusts, nursing home and senior care facility issues, long-term care matters, retirement plans and benefits, and more. It includes handling cases involving nursing home abuse and neglect and elder abuse in the form of physical, emotional, and financial abuse or exploitation from caretakers, family members, institutional staff or others, and litigation against dishonest power of attorney holders, trustees, conservators and others who exploit the elderly.
