Elder Law covers the legal issues encountered by an aging population. In general, an Elder Law attorney will address issues related to estate planning and will counsel clients about planning for incapacity, designating fiduciaries and caregivers to "stand in your shoes," assisting clients in planning for long-term care needs and coordinating the private and public resources that may be necessary to finance the cost of care. The attorney should work to ensure that the client (and family) are well advised when it comes to quality of care issues.
