Elder Law Matters
The term “elder law” is not about a precise set of local, state or federal laws, as other areas of the law typically are. Rather, elder law serves as an umbrella term for a number of legal areas. Elder law can refer to an array of issues of interest to, or often affecting, people in their later years. Many topics falling under the category of “elder law” may also pertain to people with disabilities and in fact, people of any age from many other demographics.
For the sake of this website, we will use “elder law” to mean legal matters that our firm often advises on, having to do with people beyond retirement age and their family members who may care for them.
