Elder Law

Elder law attorneys use a holistic approach to handle the legal needs of older adults. Work can include general estate planning issues, planning for long term care, planning for incapacity, and protection against elder abuse.

Mediation

Mediation is a voluntary method of dispute resolution that allows parties to craft their own solution to a dispute.
