The term Elder Law refers to the fact that many of the legal areas and knowledge has special significance to people reaching the age of retirement and accessing public benefits like Social Security and Medicare. The practice area also deals with the issues associated with aging like long term care, incapacity and dying. Clearly, these issues are not unique to people over 60. We serve many younger clients. These include children taking care of elderly parents, parents of impaired or disabled children as they transition into adulthood and people who want to plan for their own future incapacity or death.
