Product Description:
This practice guide is currently divided into two parts.

Part One, written by Bernard A. Krooks, Esq., 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. 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.

Part Two, written by Jessica R. Amelar, Esq., gives the attorney a step-by-step overview of the drafting of a will, from the initial client interview to the will execution. This section provides a sample will, sample representation letters and numerous checklists, forms and exhibits.

There have been significant revisions to the commentary throughout the elder law sections, especially in areas covering, among others, ethical concerns in elder law, guardianships under Article 81 of the Mental Hygiene Law, the Uniform Guardianship Protective Proceedings Jurisdiction Act, which was enacted in 2014, Medicaid eligibility and the community Medicaid program, and recent changes to the New York estate tax exemption.
