elder law practitioners
The Elder Law practice guide has been completely
updated and redesigned and is now part of the New York
Lawyers’ Practical Skills Series, which now includes
Forms on CD.
The 2012-2013 release is current through the 2012 New York legislative
session. This practice guide, written by Bernard A. Krooks, Esq.,
and Jessica R. Amelar, Esq. is conveniently organized into two parts.
The first part examines the scope and practice of elder law in New York
State, covering areas such as Medicaid, long-term care insurance, powers
of attorney and health care proxies.
Part two gives the attorney a step-by-step overview of the drafting of a
will, from the initial client interview to the will execution. This
publication, which provides a sample will, sample representation letters
and numerous checklists, forms and exhibits, is even more valuable with
the inclusion of Forms on CD.
Elder law is one of the most challenging and rewarding practice areas.
With the aging of the Baby Boomers, and the rapid growth of the number
of senior citizens, elder law practitioners have stepped in to fill the
gaps in the more traditional practice areas. Elder law cuts across many
distinct fields including (1) benefits law, (2) trusts and estates, (3)
personal injury, (4) family law, (5) real estate, (6) taxation, (7)
guardianship law, (8) insurance law and (9) constitutional law.
