Elder Law Can Help You And Your Aging Loved Ones
Elder law is a broad area of the law that covers a wide range of issues that are especially relevant to seniors as well as younger family members who help and support their aging parents, grandparents or other loved ones. These issues include legal questions related to retirement, Social Security, estate planning, health care planning, guardianship, benefits programs and many more.
Because elder law has so many components, it can be helpful to work with an attorney who specializes specifically in elder law and is not distracted by unrelated matters. Our founding attorney, Amanda M. Wolf, is a board-certified elder law specialist, as recognized by the Florida Bar. This certification means that Amanda has received additional training in elder law matters, has proven her knowledge through formal exams, and continues to receive periodic continuing education in order to stay apprised of new developments in the field so that she can provide the best possible legal advice to her clients.
