Finding An Elder Law Attorney

As the baby boomer generation reaches senior citizen status, many adult children of this generation are challenged with finding an attorney to address the needs of an aging population.  Finding a competent and experience attorney to address the unique needs of an elderly client can be difficult.

The elder law attorneys at Stewart, Mittleman & O’Rourke welcome the opportunity to learn about your specific situation and advise how our attorneys can help you attain your goals and objectives.  A number of our clients learn about our Elder Law practice through the recommendations of other attorneys, financial planners and related organizations such as the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA).

Once you have found a potential elder law attorney, make an appointment to speak with the attorney.  This initial consultation is your opportunity to learn about the attorney’s experience, education and approach to elder law.  Be sure to give the attorney a good idea of your specific circumstances.  This is your opportunity to ask lots of questions, such as:

  • Who will handle the case in the law firm?
  • How are fees computed?
  • What are the attorney’s initial thoughts regarding the situation you’ve described?
  • Has he or she handled similar cases?
  • Are there any aspects of your case the attorney has not handled previously?
  • What are the options available to you given the attorney’s knowledge of you case at this point?
  • What memberships does the attorney have?
  • What is the process for a case such as yours?

The more dialogue you have with an elder law attorney, the better you will be able to determine if he or she is a good fit for you.  This is a relationship where trust and professionalism are imperative.  If you sense the attorney is a good match for you for any reason, you should meet with another attorney.

At Stewart, MIttleman & O’Rourke, our elder law attorneys welcome the opportunity to meet with you and learn about your specific situation.   We encourage you to call our office for an appointment or contact us online to schedule a consultation.
