Intro to Elder Law

We face important decisions as we age. How to receive care, where to live, and what’s going to happen at the end are all daunting questions. Many of these issues involve legal considerations, and elder law attorneys are there to offer advice, make preparations, and advocate for the interests of their clients. This section focuses on elder law. You’ll find articles on elder law generally as well as on topics such as advance healthcare directives and guardianship and conservatorship specifically. End of life concerns, health care considerations, and living and care arrangements are discussed here too.
