How is Elder Law Different?

There are hundreds of different practice areas that lawyers can practice within, some of them can be pretty niche, but elder law is applicable to nearly anyone. What makes elder law different from other practice areas is the sensitive nature of it.

Much of elder law deals with managing end of life, but the idea is to get it all set up well before you need it. As you can imagine though, many lawyers may not have the respect to approach such matters with tact.

  • Estate Planning—This sounds fancy but it’s a broad term that refers to any documents that detail how your assets will be distributed upon your death. A will is the most basic form of estate planning. Beyond that, we can also help you create a living trust, which is a little more complicated but can make the process quicker and easier for your benefactors in Wisconsin.

  • Power of Attorney—There are many forms of power of attorney including both health care power of attorney and a durable power of attorney.
