Original Program: 2018 Basics of Elder & Special Needs Law, October 12, 2018

Available format

Elder law is a growing specialty and it demands an understanding of more than ten different areas of law.

Elder law attorneys primarily serve people as they age (older persons) and people with disabilities with the aim of helping the client achieve their goals and objectives in the most efficient and resourceful way. The use of a power of attorney is not novel to the practice of elder law. North Carolina’s recent adoption of the Uniform Power of Attorney Act (UPOAA) does not raise new considerations and concerns for elder law attorneys in planning for their clients, however, it increases the importance of understanding present concerns and how careful drafting can further your client’s goals.

Rather than identifying how a power of attorney affects each individual area of law under the umbrella of elder law, this program focuses on the questions you should consider in counseling your client on how a power of attorney can advance, or impact, your client’s estate planning goals.
