Elder law is a growing practice area aimed at meeting the needs of clients and their families during both the pre- and post-retirement stages of a person’s life. The focus of an elder law attorney’s practice can range from securing government benefits, helping families with long term care and disability issues, or providing much needed tax, estate, trust, and financial planning. An elder law practice may include advocating for both elders and special needs children and adults, as well as settling the elder’s estate. Attorneys practicing elder law can enjoy challenging but gratifying work through which they guide families through the legal needs of life’s later years. Elder law is practiced in many different venues and settings, and this program’s diverse panel will share insights and strategies on pursuing an elder law career path.
