The National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA) has declared the month of May as “National Elder Law Month” as an effort to call attention the the legal rights and legal resources available to educate older Americans within their communities.

Unlike traditional lawyers, elder law attorneys deal with their clients “holistically” – helping with the issues that affect a particular segment of the population rather than a narrow area of law.

When clients visit an elder law attorney, they generally present problems beyond the need for a will or a power of attorney. Elder law attorneys are familiar with the network of services and providers who assist clients effectively.

NAELA devotes much of its resources to education of its members. Elder law attorneys must constantly monitor the ever-changing statutes and regulations to which older adults are beholden for their daily existence.
