Elder Law Attorney Answers Health and Finance Questions

CollettSmallElderLaw1An ongoing concern for many older adults, as well as their adult children, is whether they really need to pay for the services of an attorney when planning for their finances and health care in old age. This is a valid question, and people of modest means often feel that they can’t afford an attorney. However, the reality is that many elder care problems faced by families can be avoided by consulting an attorney before their loved one needs any form of care.

Collett P. Small, Esq., is an elder law specialist and chair of the elder law section of the Florida Bar. She is a member of the National Academy for Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA) and the Academy of Florida Elder Law Attorneys (AFELA).
