    What is the Difference Between Elder Law and Estate Planning?

    Elder Law is an area of legal practice that focuses on issues that aging adults may face; the cost of long-term care, qualifying for government benefits, needing more help in the later years etc.

    Estate planning includes legal solutions like Wills and trusts to protect you, your loved ones and your legacy. An Elder Law attorney can also assist a person with planning for their later years, or Pre-Planning. Planning is an option at any age, there is no reason to wait. With the assistance of an experienced attorney, it could be possible to avoid some of the legal challenges that could occur without proper estate planning.

    Hear From Our Clients

    I heard Cindy’s presentation at a Senior Luncheon at my church, and was very impressed. She helped my daughter and me understand many aspects of elder law. Josh has also been very helpful in my planning to enter an independent living situation . I have told many friends about them.

    - Charlotte

    The very best elder law attorney and staff anyone could ever ask for! I have referred a number of clients to Cindy and she never disappoints. She is kind, caring, and extremely thorough in making sure everything is completed as it should be. I highly recommend Cindy for anyone needing lawyer services; she truly goes above and beyond for every client she helps and has had a huge impact in so many peoples’ lives. Thank you, Cindy and staff, for everything that you do- I’m so glad to know you!

    - Kerri

    Cindy and the Nelson Elder Care Law team are trustworthy and helpful. They are the experts in elder care law. At Leaf Cremation, we entrust our families to the care of the Nelson team when their services are needed.

    - Pierce

    Josh Nelson, and his staff, have been amazingly helpful to our family. The ins and outs of nursing homes, the rules and regulations that govern Medicare and Medicaid are daunting and the folks at Nelson Elder Care Law have been informative, responsive, and above all, empathetic. I cannot emphasize enough how their service has taken a weight off of our shoulders especially during a world pandemic that has targeted nursing homes across our country. I highly recommend retaining Josh and his firm!

    - Marcia

    I had a simple legal question to them that I needed answered and they very helpful in giving me the information I needed. I highly recommend them and will reach out to them if I need more advice or assistance. Thank you for taking your time to just answer a couple of questions I had!
