What Does an Elder Law Attorney Do?
By Ryan McNeill
There are many areas of law and sometimes they overlap. That can lead to confusion about the different functions performed by an attorney in each role. Sometimes a client might think they need an estate planning attorney or real estate attorney, but might really need an elder law attorney due to this overlap in areas of practice. The role of an elder law attorney includes a wide range of topics, not all of which are handled by someone who only does estate planning or real estate.
