What Is Elder Law?
The legal needs of the elderly are many and diverse:
- Age Description
- Durable Powers of Attorney
- Estate Planning
- Financing Long-Term Care
- Health Care Quality Issues
- Independent Living Options
- Medicare and Medicaid
Elder law is more than a set of tasks; it is about who you are serving: older adults. In a sense, elder law is among the most personalized areas of practice. A truly excellent elder law attorney is both technically competent and personally compassionate. At Fowler Doyle Spiess PLLC, we believe in serving our aging population with genuine care at all times, and we support you and your loved ones however we can.
Elder law is a comprehensive area of the law, and it can require a wide range of needs. From planning an estate to managing a family home or protecting a vulnerable adult from negligence and abuse, coordinated care is of utmost importance.
In addition to providing legal counsel to the elderly, a qualified elder law attorney may serve a significant function for those planning for retirement and also for families with minor children concerned about the possible implications of the untimely death of a spouse or loved one.
