Attorneys across the United States have designated May as the time to educate and help the aging generation with legal issues. The National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys has declared May as National Elder Law Month. We celebrate our older population by bringing awareness to situations that impact more senior citizens.
Now is the perfect time to provide advocacy, guidance and services that help our seniors.
Elder law is set to help with issues directly affecting the aging population. While all laws apply to seniors, some cases impact them specifically. Some legal issues that we work with under elder law are:
While these issues are always important, May allows us to spotlight the care of seniors. Elder law requires a compassionate attorney who understands the unique needs of the older generation.
The first and most important way to acknowledge the situation of growing older is to talk with your family. Having a solid support group will help you make the right decisions for yourself or a loved one. Discuss your concerns as you get older and wishes for your senior years.
While talking with family is imperative, taking action is next. You and your loved ones want to work with an experienced elder law attorney who understands your unique situation. We can answer specific questions and make recommendations based on your needs. At Estate and Probate Legal Group, we can help write your will, plan for your retirement or protect the rights of a vulnerable or neglected senior citizen.
If you have questions regarding legal issues and the elderly, an experienced lawyer can advise you on the best options for your situation. To talk to a qualified elder law attorney in Chicago or Oak Brook, contact the Estate & Probate Legal Group at 630-864-5835.
