Why Hire an Elder Law Lawyer?
Elder law is very different from other branches of family law. As such, a good elder law attorney will have a solid understanding of the factors that affect senior citizens. Additionally, an elder law attorney will have experience with the type of care, compassion, and patience these cases need as they often involve end-of-life care and treatment. It is important to have the right attorney by your side to determine what is best for your health, finances, and family before you die.
Why Did Elder Law Develop?
In 2015, the U.S. Census recorded that the United States had a population
of nearly 48 million people over the age of 65. That number is estimated to grow to close to 98 million by 2060. Elder law originated to address the specific issues the elderly community face as they age. These issues are very particular and require a lot of legal assistance, as many of them relate to financial planning and end-of-life care.
