Do all attorneys practice elder law?

Not all attorneys practice elder law. It’s a very specialized area of the law, and not even all estate planning attorneys practice elder law. Elder law is the area of law where you’re seeking the assistance of an attorney that says, “I can help you plan for government benefits, Medicaid, assistance with utilizing long-term care benefits under a policy, as well as veterans benefits.” If you’re seeking those kinds of legal needs, you should be seeking the assistance of an elder law attorney, not a general practitioner or an estate planning attorney that does not practice elder law.
