Q:

What is Elder Law?

A:

Elder law is any legal issue that affects someone who is at least 65 years old. Some people draw the line at age 55. Many attorneys limit “elder law” to Medicaid planning and applications. But issues of housing, discrimination, disability, health, family relations are all parts of Elder Law. I limit my practice to issues about estate planning, probate, guardianship, asset protection, and Medicaid.
