About me

I feel privileged to be an elder law attorney.  My practice gives me the opportunity to work with many family caregivers who are doing one of the hardest jobs I know, which is caring for an elderly loved one.  I work with families who are managing care from hundreds or thousands of miles away and with adult children and grandchildren who are caring for their elderly family members in their homes.  The work I do assists them to do the much harder work that they do.


The photo?  That is Moab's Mad Hatter, known as "Mo".  Mo is my labrador retriever and he has been working in the ofice with me since he was three months old.

Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer

  • Vance Tate Davis

    I endorse this lawyer. Ms. Seal practices in Elder Law as do I, so I have had the opportunity to review and learn from a great many of her fine contributions to the Avvo legal community. She is not only skilled in her knowledge of the law, but also skilled at clearly communicating that knowledge in ways that are easy to understand and follow. It is without any hesitation that I recommend her professional legal guidance to anyone needing assistance in the often-complex area of elder law matters.
