Elder Law Practitioners Help In 10 Specific Areas

Attorneys who devote all or a substantial part of their practices to helping older Americans, whether they are certified in elder law or not, provide valuable services to people who need it the most.

According to an article on the website ehow.com by contributor Helen Harvey, this assistance tends to be concentrated in 10 different areas.

These are:

  • Estate planning
  • Will preparation
  • Conservatorship or guardianship
  • Applying for benefits
  • Establishing trusts
  • Handling eviction situations
  • Ensuring driving privileges
  • Age discrimination
  • Elder abuse
  • Crafting living wills

“The practice of elder law pertains to those areas of the law that are particularly relevant to older adults, or those age 65 and older,” Harvey writes. “It is a diverse discipline dealing with wide-ranging matters, including wills, conservatorship, guardianship, health care, government benefits, housing, nursing homes and elder abuse. With the senior population growing rapidly, elder law is growing as a legal practice specialty, and you should have no problem in locating an elder law attorney to advise you.”
