What does an Elder Law Attorney Do?
An Elder Law Attorney is aware of the real life problems, health and otherwise, that people experience as they age. They are tied into a system of social workers, psychologists, geriatric care managers, and other elder care professionals who may be of assistance to their clients. Attorneys who work with the elderly bring more to their practice than experience with the legal issues. They have an understanding of the elderly that allows them and their staff to ignore the myths related to aging. At the same time, they recognize and empathize with some of the true physical and mental difficulties that often accompany the aging process.
