What Is Elder Law?
Elder law is an area of law that includes the creation and maintenance of asset protection plans for aging individuals. This can include the creation of estate planning tools like advance directive and powers of attorney, MassHealth (Medicaid) planning and submission of an application for benefits, asset protection, estate tax planning and other things.
While much of elder law is focused on seniors, the fact is that people of all ages can benefit from the services of a qualified elder law attorney. For instance, clients with minor children can establish trusts to ensure that if they pass away their minor children are protected.
One of the biggest challenges today is that so many attorneys are hanging out shingles and calling themselves “elder law attorneys.” The problem is that elder law requires years of focused experience to develop the knowledge necessary to achieve a client’s goals amidst a complex and ever-changing legal environment. For this reason, we refer you to Questions To Ensure You Are Working With A Qualified Estate Planning And Elder Law Attorney.
Working with a truly qualified elder law attorney – like our attorneys – is essential when you are planning if you want the peace of mind that you, your family and your hard-earned savings are protected.
