An elder law attorney typically handles issues regarding the elderly. These types of issues generally relate to nursing home care, estate planning, and guardianships, for example. Experienced and qualified elder law attorneys receive specific training and experience in the applicable legal issues affecting seniors. This makes such elder law attorneys better equipped to understand and meet the needs of their elder clients and their families. Elder law attorneys are also very skilled at anticipating potential legal issues facing seniors. All in all, the practice of elder law involves legal advocacy, education, counseling and future planning.
