A non-profit organization, the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys, Inc., is a professional association of lawyers who are dedicated to improving the quality of legal services provided to the elderly. Elder law attorneys focus on the legal needs of the elderly and work with a variety of legal tools and techniques to meet the goals and objectives of older clients. Since 1900, the percentage of Americans over age 65 has more than tripled. The most rapid increase is expected from 2010 to 2030, when the baby boom generation reaches 65. Legal needs of the elderly may involve such issues as age discrimination, elder abuse, estate planning, long-term care and Medicare/Medicaid decisions. Established in 1988, the NAELA helps its members more effectively address the particular legal needs of the elderly.
