Elder law is an area of the law which places an emphasis on representing, counseling, and assisting our aging population and their families with a variety of legal issues. Unlike other areas of the law, elder law, like estate planning, is not an isolated field of law confined to a single set of statutes or regulations. Elder law is a broad area of law because it encompasses all aspects of issues facing the elderly. An elder-law attorney addresses the client’s perspective from a holistic viewpoint by addressing the legal, medical, financial, social, and family issues.
