May has been known as Senior Citizens month since 1963 when it was declared so by President Kennedy and is also recognized as National Elder Law Month by The National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys. Attorneys that practice elder law focus on issues concerning seniors including estate planning, wills and caring arrangements among others.
By 2030, nearly 20 percent of the U.S. population will be age 65 or older, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. To help with the growing number of people that need assistance in this age range, the law firm of Foster Swift Collins & Smith, PC has launched its elder law blog. The goal of this blog is to address the most common legal questions people have or will have in a practical yet compassionate way.
Foster Swift elder law and estate planning attorneys Nicolas Camargo, Matthew Fedor and Trevor Weston will provide readers with relevant information on the wide range of legal issues facing seniors. “We deal with sensitive family situations every day, and realize how difficult they can be” Fedor stated.
“We want to be a resource, advising clients on life, aging and protecting their loved ones, while also understanding the individual’s legal needs. Whether they are planning for the future or in a current crisis, we offer counsel and solutions to help them through the challenges of helping aging family members. Our office is much more than a place where legal documents are prepared. It is also a place where seniors and their families are heard and connections are made, all while providing a “big picture” solution to the challenges of aging.”
