Elder Law

In California, the law recognizes the rights of their senior citizens to have the best access to services as much as possible. This includes their right to be able to plan and protect their assets early on, so that they may be able to enjoy the benefits unhindered when they need it.

This is known as elder law. All throughout the state of California, its application remains the same and constant. San Mateo elder law, for example, will be the same as the Silicon Valley elder law, making it convenient for citizens to seek protection under this law no matter where they may be in the state.

What is Elder Law

Elder law was created to ensure that an elder’s well-being will be taken care of. From their choice as to the medical decisions that will impact them, to how their estate will be distributed amongst the rest of the family, it is important that they get to have a say in the matter and exercise their agency while still possible.

What is Encompassed within Elder Law

Elder law specifically covers matters of estate planning, conservatorships, wills and trusts, medical care or physicians’ directives, medical coverage and insurance, special needs, as well as any other specific declarations the elder may have.

These matters can be very technical, which is why it’s important that you seek the help of North San Jose elder law attorneys, or attorneys in Milpitas area, or elsewhere in the state.
