What is probate law?

Probate law is a sector of legal practice that ensures any given will is proven valid and that, ultimately, the terms of that will are enacted.1

What is elder law?

Aptly named, elder law is a sector of law that protects the rights of elderly individuals. This includes (but is not limited to) providing assistance in the preparation of wills and trusts, ensuring the right to a health care proxy, and the preservation of an individual’s assets.2

  • Probate of wills and estates
