As we age, many of us will face major medical and financial decisions. The factors that we consider during our advanced years are often very different than when we were younger. Many of these decisions will also be influenced by our family, friends, and community. Elder Law is the area of law that focuses on our needs as we enter our senior years.
Elder Law spans many legal fields including:
- Estate Planning
