Welcome to my new elder law news blog. Let’s begin with addressing a popular question: What IS an elder care lawyer?
An attorney who practices Elder Law works mostly with aging individuals (otherwise affectionately known as senior citizens, and I’m almost one of them!) and/or those with disabilities or who are, in some way, incapacitated. I generally address estate planning issues and counsel clients about planning for incapacity with alternative decision making documents (power of attorney, wills, living wills, etc) and planning for possible long-term care needs, including protecting assets and planning for nursing home care.
I am an Elder Law Attorney in both PA and NY. I am a member of Naela (National Association of Elder Law Attorneys), a Certified Guardian, accredited Veteran’s Affairs Attorney and a member of the NY and PA Bar Associations. I am available to visit clients both in my office or, for convenience, at their home or nursing facility.
