The practice of elder law is infinitely diverse and is comprised of at least 15 sub-specialty disciplines, including, but not limited to, special needs law, taxation, estate planning, estate and trust administration, guardianships, elder abuse and financial exploitation, Social Security and other retirement benefits planning, fair housing, employment law, insurance law, Medicaid, veterans benefits and public benefits.
More challenging still is keeping abreast of the ever-changing aspects of the laws and rules governing these different areas of practice.
This manuscript provides expertise from skilled practitioners and nationally known experts from all over the country on the most pressing issues facing seniors and special needs clients.
Advanced issues associated with special needs planning, elder abuse and financial exploitation, fair housing, long-term care insurance, and Medicaid benefits planning and estate recovery are discussed in depth.
Also covered are important legislative updates and case law developments, using geriatric care managers in the practice of elder and special needs law, healthcare advance directive planning and changes affecting Social Security benefits planning.
