In elder law practice, the attorney plays a leading role in the resolution of a myriad of interwoven problems that elderly clients face, only one or a few of which may be legal problems. As your clients get older, you can expect to encounter legal issues in any number of different practice areas, including Medicaid eligibility planning, estate planning, conservatorships/guardianships, removal of fiduciaries, nursing home litigation, drafting or correction of deeds, premarital agreements, taxation, insurance policy matters, etc. In dealing with these legal issues, an elder law practitioner also needs to understand, among other things, the aging process, family dynamics, and the resources that are available to the elderly.

In 1900 the average life expectancy in the United States was 47 years. Today it’s 78, and it rises each year. As more and more of our population live longer, fresh challenges arise for clients, their families, and their lawyers.

Cosponsored with the Virginia Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (VAELA), this program is geared to practitioners who want to expand or refresh their knowledge of the fast-growing field of advising the elderly. This program also qualifies for 6 hours of continuing education for Guardians Ad Litem for Incapacitated Persons.
