New York Elder Law Attorneys
You have heard the term Elder Law countless times… but, if you’re
like many people today, you probably think Elder Law is only for the elderly.
When is the right time to seek the counsel of an Elder Law attorney? And
why is it so important for people of all ages to have an understanding
of the many elder law issues facing all of us today as we age?
What is Elder Law?
Elder Law is an area of the law that primarily deals with Advanced Planning
for many of the issues that concern all of us as we grow older. These
are issues such as potential incapacity, asset protection, concern over
Government benefits, and, most importantly, how to strike the correct
balance of empowering our loved ones to make important decisions (financial
and health related) on our behalf, while, at the same time, ensuring that
we maintain our independence and dignity. The field of Elder Law is constantly
changing. Attorneys that practice in this area must stay ever vigilant
and maintain a constant awareness of the new laws and regulations that
impact all of us.
Why Do I Need an Elder Law Attorney?
Elder Law is a complex issue, and it’s important that you seek the
counsel of an attorney who is experienced in the specific area of Elder
Law. Elder Law attorneys can assist with today’s most important
issues as we age, including supplemental and long-term health insurance
issues, Advance Directives (including Powers of Attorney, Health Care
Proxies and Living Wills), disability planning, estate planning, probate,
housing issues, conservatorships and guardianships, retirement benefits
and other concerns of today’s aging Americans. You can, and should,
plan years in advance for these issues – and it’s never too
early to seek the advice of an experienced Elder Law attorney to help
navigate this complex arena to make sure that you are prepared for the future.
