Finding An Elder Law Attorney –
The attorney who practices Elder Law or Special Needs Law works primarily with people as they age and people with disabilities. Using a holistic approach, the attorney will address general estate planning issues and will counsel clients about planning for incapacity and possible long-term care needs. The attorney typically wants to be sure the documents properly coordinate private and public resources to finance the cost of quality care. The attorney may also have suggestions for support services in your area. You can locate an elder law attorney through:
1. NAELA National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys’ website at www.naela.org. On the NAELA homepage, you will find a link that will help you locate an elder law attorney near you.
