Elder Law

The practice of elder law actually describes the segment of the population to whom an attorney provides legal representation, rather than a specific area of legal practice, and consists of providing advice and counseling to older persons and their representatives with respect to those issues and concerns affecting the elderly. These include, but are not limited to, health and long term care planning; advance directives (living wills and health care powers of attorney); public benefits, such as Medicaid, Medicare, Social Security and Veterans benefits; housing alternatives for the infirm or those suffering from diminished mental capacity; surrogate decision-making; and the administration of trusts and estates.

Mr. Teitelbaum is a member of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys, can assist you or a loved one with competent legal advice with respect to these issues and concerns, and guide you through the complex laws and regulations regarding public benefits.
