The National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA), a professional association of attorneys dedicated to improving the quality of legal services provided to older Americans and individuals with special needs, established May as Elder Law Month as a way to educate seniors and their families about their legal options in dealing with elder abuse and fraud, long-term and health care planning, Medicaid, Medicare, estate planning, and other important issues.
All too often, Americans wait to deal with these issues in times of crisis, rather than working with an Elder or Special Needs Law attorney before the crisis occurs. By planning ahead and looking to the future, seniors and people with special needs can ensure a better quality of life and that they have the services and support they need as they get older.
Diana has earned the distinction of being a certified elder law attorney. Take advantage of Elder Law Month and see an elder law attorney to help you with any of your elder law or special needs law issues.
