This second edition reflects changes of the past decade which reshaped elder law and how it is practiced. While Medicaid is still a primary concern, this title also covers trial advocacy issues and updated tax materials. The text discusses the greater reliance on durable powers of attorney and health care proxies. Leading practitioners in elder law provide you with a concise single-source reference addressing vital topics, including heightened conflict in guardianship appointments and management, the evolution of the Social Security System, end-of-life care, and even practice management.
