Elder Law

Michael Walker is an expert in Elder Law in and around Bergen and Passaic County. Elder Law is a relatively new and fast growing field of law that deals with specific legal issues faced by the elderly population. Elder law combines elements of Estate Planning, Trusts, Wills, Medicaid Planning, Nursing Home Planning, and Guardianship- Conservatorship.

In addition, elder law deals with disability planning, including use of durable powers of attorney, living trusts, living wills and other means of delegating management to another in case of incompetency or incapacity. It is important for attorneys dealing with the elderly to have a unique understanding of the laws that may have an impact on the elderly. It is important that you hire an attorney who regularly handles matters in your area of concern and knows about the other areas of law that might impact this decision.
