What Is Elder Law?
Elder law broadly describes the legal planning that helps clients protect themselves and their assets as they age. Elder law can include estate planning, MassHealth (Medicaid) Planning and applications, asset protection, estate tax planning and a host of other areas.
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 10 Questions To Help You Locate 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.
