Elder law refers to the area of legal practice pertaining to issues that affect older clients (usually those over 60 years of age). The three primary focuses of elder law include:
Medicaid, social security, disability and long-term care
As one approaches the end of his or her life, issues related to what he or she will do with their belongings once they are gone become a greater focus. This includes not only the preparation and administration of a will, but also advising the elder client and his or her family about the tax consequences of different inheritance strategies, including establishing trusts, the use and purpose of a living will, and any other matters that could affect the elder’s personal or estate interests at the end of his or her life.
