What is Elder Law?

Elder law is a specialized area of legal practice that focuses on the unique needs and concerns of older adults and their families. It encompasses various legal issues affecting seniors.

In Florida, common types of elder law cases include:

  • Estate Planning: This involves creating wills, trusts, powers of attorney, and other documents to ensure that an individual's assets are managed and distributed according to their wishes after they pass away.
  • Long-Term Care Planning: This includes strategies to help seniors afford the high costs of long-term care, such as nursing home care or assisted living facilities, while preserving assets for their heirs. This often involves Medicaid planning.
  • Medicaid Planning: Helping seniors qualify for Medicaid benefits to cover the costs of long-term care without depleting all of their assets.
  • Guardianship: When an elderly individual becomes incapacitated and is unable to make decisions for themselves, a guardian may be appointed by the court to make decisions on their behalf.
  • Social Security and Retirement Benefits: Advising seniors on their rights and options regarding Social Security benefits, pensions, and other retirement benefits.
  • Elder Abuse and Neglect: Representing seniors who have been victims of abuse or neglect, whether it's physical, emotional, or financial abuse, and helping them seek protection and justice.
  • Probate and Estate Administration: Assisting with the legal process of administering an estate after someone passes away, including probate proceedings and distributing assets to beneficiaries.
  • Advanced Directives and Healthcare Planning: Helping seniors create advance directives, such as living wills and healthcare proxies, to specify their wishes regarding medical treatment in the event of incapacity.
