What’s The Difference Between An Attorney & An Elder Law Attorney?

Guest post by:


Attorneys can help you and give you legal advice, but unless they focus in that particular area, they can only give general counsel. Senior issues tend to be very complicated and involve more than one aspect. Your decision on one thing, like Medicaid benefits, can be directly tied to other issues like your assets and estate plans. When it comes to these things, you don’t want general counsel, you want an attorney that knows everything about these topics.

Elder law attorneys can lead you through these complex issues and make sure that your wishes are respected and taken care of. They are also usually very involved in the senior community and can help tend to the emotional needs of seniors during these times by providing access to resources and support in the area.
