Legal Services Tailored To Older Adults And Families Of Disabled Adults
The concept of elder law is defined by the characteristics of the clients served, rather than having a strictly technical definition. Elder law is a diverse field of law that touches several other traditional areas of the law that are often of interest to older people, people with disabilities and family members of either group.
