What Is Elder Law?

There is no exact definition of elder law. Any legal issue that the older population might face fits under the umbrella of elder law. Its practice areas include:

  • Estate planning: Wills, trusts, living wills, special needs trusts and more.
  • Advance directives: Including durable powers of attorney that state your wishes should you be unable to make or voice decisions on your own.
  • Probate administration: The process of validating a will, distributing assets and paying off final debts.
  • Guardianships and conservatorships: The court appointment of a decision-maker when a person becomes disabled. Conservators are only appointed to manage a person's finances, while a guardian has control over a disabled person's personal affairs.
  • Veterans' benefits: Medical care and long-term care planning for veterans or disability benefits.
  • Housing transitions and real estate: Moving into nursing home facilities and selling real property.

This is just a short list of the many issues elder citizens might face. Many other issues could have been listed, but this list reflects the most common issues associated with elder law in New York.
