Attorney Amy Eddy attended the WINAELA 25th Annual Elder and Special Needs Law Workshop for the Wisconsin Chapter of NAELA (National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys). The advanced program focused on attorneys practicing in the areas of elder law and special needs and attorneys who are CELAs (Certified Elder Law Attorneys).
What is elder law?
Elder Law, much like “Family Law” or “Employment Law” is an umbrella term for a broad-based area of law. For Elder Law attorneys, this consists of multiple areas of practice that relate to older adults, individuals with disabilities and those who care for seniors and disabled individuals, including:
- Health Care and Legal Capacity
- Public Benefits (e.g. Medicaid and SSI)
- Special Needs Trusts
- Long Term Care
- Asset Protection and Nursing Home Planning
- Wills, Trusts and Powers of Attorney
- Probate and Trust Settlements
- Guardianship and Conservatorship
