Rather than being defined by technical legal distinctions, Elder Law is defined by the client to be served. Our attorneys practicing Elder Law keenly focus their attention on the The Greatest Generation, advocating for a wide array of issues relating to seniors, such as nursing home abuse/neglect, estate planning, social security disability law, Medicare, Medicaid, disability planning, and health issues, among others. Legal problems that affect the elderly are becoming more complex. Actions taken by older people with regard to a single matter may have unintended legal consequences. McLeod, Alexander, Powel & Apffel, P.C. has a broad appreciation of the laws that may have an impact on a given situation.
