Instructor: Doug Martinson
This course will broadly introduce participants to the world of elder law and answer questions that may arise. Elder Law is the legal specialty concerned with growing older and the transfer of property from one generation to the next. It encompasses estate planning topics: wills, trusts, and the probate process, as well as planning for contingencies through powers of attorney, healthcare directives, guardianships, and conservatorships. The course will also cover Medicaid planning, Social Security benefits, veterans’ benefits, special needs planning, and senior living.
