Frequently Asked Questions About Elder Law Attorneys

Elder law attorneys provide legal advice on various issues for seniors including estate planning, Medicaid planning, healthcare planning, long term care, and elder care abuse. Elder law attorneys deal with both planning for the future and taking legal action in the present such as payment for care or resolving a long term care insurance claim issue.

In addition, State laws can vary greatly for estate planning and other legal areas. Elder law attorneys are certified by each State and can advise on legal processes and documents specific to your State.

Elder care and estate planning are two separate topics. Elder care attorneys typically specialize in both elder care law and estate planning but they are different legal topics. Elder care law refers to legal advice and healthcare planning while estate planning refers to more financial planning but can involve financial and decision planning for healthcare needs. See our estate planning page to learn more.

If you are interested in protecting your future financial and healthcare needs, it may be a good idea to seek the advice of an elder law attorney. Attorneys can help protect your assets and plan for unexpected healthcare costs or long term care needs.
