May is National Elder Law Month

Sponsored by the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA), National Elder Law Month highlights the legal issues unique to people as they age and strives to empower consumers with information they will need to select a skilled, compassionate and knowledgeable attorney to work with them. During Elder Law Month, NAELA members across the country offer public seminars, Elder Law clinics and other activities designed to educate the public.
Elder Law attorneys practice a specialized form of law that involves representing, counseling, and assisting seniors, people with disabilities, and their families. Says Elder Law Attorney and Owner of Elder Law of Omaha, Catherine N. Swiniarski. “All too often, families wait to deal with these until a time of crisis arises, rather than working with an Elder Law attorney before their life reaches that point. By planning ahead, seniors and people with special needs can ensure a better quality of life and have the services and support they need as they get older.”
With the number of older individuals in the population projected to increase to 71.5 million in 2030, representing nearly 20 percent of the U.S. population, the need is growing for specialized legal advice about aging-related issues.
Swiniarski has been practicing law in the Omaha area since 1986. A graduate of Creighton University School of Law, she has been helping clients and their families respond to the legal, financial, physical and psychological challenges presented by long life, illness and disability.
