The National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA) deemed May the National Elder Law Month as a way to educate individuals and families on elder law issues, such as powers of attorney, elder financial exploitation, living trusts, Medicare, and long-term care insurance. Around the nation, NAELA members are educating the public about these important issues, and the elder law attorneys at CLDDS are no different.
In honor of the National Elder Law Month, Certified Elder Law Attorney Annemarie Schreiber will be doing a Fee Living Will Day on May 22nd. A Living Will is a written statement detailing a person’s desires regarding their medical treatment in circumstances in which they are no longer able to express informed consent, it is often referred to as an advanced medical directive.

We at CLDDS also encourage anyone with questions about such issues as Estate Planning and Probate, Estate and Gift Tax Planning, Guardianship/Conservatorship, Medicaid and Medicare, Entitlement Programs, Retirement Benefits, Age Discrimination, Elder Abuse/Neglect, Housing, Long-Term Care Financing, Medical Decision Making, and Disability Planning and Insurance to reach out to us. Our firms includes two Certified Elder Law Attorneys in Annemarie Schreiber and Diana Anderson, as well as attorney Joseph Lacosta, a Certified Public Accountant.
In the next few weeks we will also post blogs about Choosing an Elder Law Attorney, the Benefits of Using a Certified Elder Law Attorney, and current elder law issues in the news. If you have a special request about a topic you would like covered, please reach out to Marketing Director Julia Moroney and we will be happy to accommodate you.
