What Is Elder Law?

Elder law is when an attorney works to protect the rights of aging family members with their estate planning, long-term care, financial planning, guardianships and Medicaid needs. For Medicaid planning specifically, an attorney can help clients plan for, apply for and receive Medicaid benefits without burning up your life’s savings.
