Why do I need an Elder Law Attorney?

Published: April 20, 2019


Attorneys who concentrate their practices in Elder Law, focus on providing legal services–primarily to senior citizens and others who are looking to plan for their life as they age.

  • Elder Law attorneys work closely with families dealing with the onset of Alzheimer’s and dementia.
  • Elder law attorneys also work with families with disabled children and family members with illnesses and legal issues.
  • As our average life spans have increased, elder law attorneys have stepped in to ensure needs for an ageing population are effectively anticipated and legally supported.


  • Focus on helping you to understand your legal options and rights as you age.
  • Understand that there are often emotional and legal details that need to be addressed when dealing with chronic illnesses, medical emergencies and end-of-life planning.
  • Will help you to anticipate and prepare for the legal aspects of illness, ageing and death, such as:
    •  The importance of wills and trusts.
    • Probate proceedings and the disposition of your assets.
    • Planning for a minor or adult with special needs.
    • The importance of a living will and a durable power of attorney.
    • The importance of creating a plan for your long-term care and understanding your eligibility for financial assistance through Medicaid Planning.
    • The importance of finding a trusted individual to be your executor or trustee.
    •  The importance understanding ways to preserve your assets to minimize tax liability and long-term care costs.

Elder Care attorneys are prepared to ask you about your wishes and to create a plan for your life–and your death–that is customized to your needs and circumstances.

CLIENT Testimonial

Our family had the good fortune to find Scott Bloom.  He was invaluable helping us set up our trust. We had an unexpected health crises and realized that we had nothing in place to protect our children.  Scott explained our options and got the necessary paperwork ready for us to hand to our family, accountant and banks. Scott was absolutely the right attorney at the right time for us. We would highly recommend him and his team.
