Elder Law in Maryland
Select a format
Encompasses Uniform Federal Law and the Unique Aspects of Maryland Law
Even more than most areas of the law, elder law tends to be state specific. In Maryland, long-term medical care regulations, health care decision making, and guardianship are just a few of the areas in which state law cannot be subsumed in general statements of majority rules or hornbook law. Yet, at the same time, uniform federal law governs Social Security issues and various consumer protection statutes and housing assistance programs. Elder Law in Maryland provides guidance to both applicable federal law and the unique aspects of Maryland elder law.
Practical, Comprehensive Guidance for the Maryland Practitioner
In a single, concise volume, Elder Law in Maryland accurately renders elder law as it currently exists in Maryland. It addresses the nexus between senior citizens and the law at those points most relevant to the legal practitioner specifically and to those serving seniors generally. Using this book as a guide, you can feel confident that you are considering all the options when planning for medical, financial, and quality of life decisions. In keeping with its practical focus, Elder Law in Maryland contains forms and documents conforming to Maryland law, texts of landmark cases, and checklists of essential elements for both office and courtroom.
