Recognition by Best Lawyers is based entirely on peer review. Our methodology is designed to capture, as accurately as possible, the consensus opinion of leading lawyers about the professional abilities of their colleagues within the same geographical area and legal practice area.

Our belief has always been that the quality of a peer review survey is directly related to the quality of the voters.

Practice Area Definition

Elder Law Definition

Elder law is a specialty of law that is designed to meet the needs of older clients and those with disabilities. Many elder law cases focus on the clients and family’s goals of obtaining the highest quality care for a loved one in the least restrictive care setting. As well as care coordination, elder law practitioners are skilled in accessing all available public benefits to assist in financing the cost of long-term care, including Medicaid, Medicare, Veterans Benefits, Long-Term Care Insurance, and smart use of our client’s assets for private pay.

Elder law attorneys also have specialized knowledge regarding special needs trust. This allows families with special needs children or grandchildren to have flexible estate plans that results in the special needs beneficiaries maintaining his or her entitlement to public benefits (such as Medicaid) while preserving the special needs trust as an important source of family funds to assist in meeting the needs of a disabled family member.

Elder law attorneys also are familiar with housing and residential care options such as adult day services, assisted living, continuing care retirement communities, nursing homes and hospice, as well as interfacing with the providers in those settings to ensure that the client’s goal of self-determination is met. Many elder law attorneys are called upon to assist families in financial and health care decision making through the use of durable powers of attorney, health care, and end-of-life decision making and many times will provide family training for advocacy in these new roles.

Elder law attorneys are well equipped to provide probate and estate administration services. Many clients are often surprised to know that elder law attorneys regularly counsel clients of all ages, who are very healthy, but wish to proactively manage the possibility of any disability issues that might arise and jeopardize their well-being and their financial security.
