What is elder law?

While the phrase “elder law” may suggest that it only pertains to elderly people, this is a common misconception. This area of law certainly does help to protect those that are elderly as their age progresses and can help relieve families of the uncertainties of the future. However, elder law attorneys can also provide the same services to clients of all ages, especially if they are disabled, incapacitated, or unable to make decisions for themselves. Individuals may be interested in estate planning, creating trusts, or preparing other legal documents for clients of all ages who want to protect their future and the future of their loved ones. Life presents issues to all people, no matter their age. At Friedman Schuman, we work diligently to help our clients come to satisfactory solutions.

Elder law can include:

  • estate planning
  • estate administration
  • Medicaid planning
  • long-term care planning
  • special needs planning
  • guardianships
  • power of attorney

What is the role of an elder law attorney?

Elder law attorneys help their clients create long-term care plans for the future. This can include assisting clients seeking asset protection or financial planning, for example. Elder law attorneys usually help seniors and others with special needs – as well as their families- to ensure their futures are protected and their needs are met as they age. The attorneys at Friedman Schuman can help our clients make crucial legal decisions about their long-term financial or care plans.
