Practitioners in elder law plan, educate, counsel, and advocate on behalf of aging individuals, often in conjunction with family members or loved ones, on a wide variety of topics. Our understanding of the physical and mental difficulties that often afflict the older or special needs client allows us to empathize with that client as we deal with their real life legal challenges. In addition to helping clients navigate legal issues, Procter, Callahan & Liska, LLC connects clients with a network of community resources and professionals who may be able to assist with non-legal issues. We strive to be a resource for our clients so that all available information can be utilized to reach our clients’ goals.
The attorneys at Procter, Callahan & Liska LLC take a big picture approach to elder law. We are sensitive to capacity issues and are particularly aware of concerns relating to capacity and undue influence surrounding changes to an elder client’s estate plan. There are also practical implications to creating a plan for aging that affect the family as a whole. We educate individuals and families in the creation of practical and predictable plans. Although predictability is not always possible, with a well thought out plan we can simplify the process for families and loved ones, connect clients with resources, and provide information specific to clients’ individual circumstances.
