Elder law or elder care attorneys typically help families plan for Medicaid coverage of long-term care and apply for coverage when the time comes; plan and administer an estate; represent guardians and conservators; and create and administer trusts.
Unlike many other areas of the law, elder law is defined by the needs of the client. They are aware that their clients’ needs often extend beyond basic legal services. For this reason, they are linked to a network of professionals in their community who serve the senior population.
