Do You Educate Others About Elder Law Issues?

An old truism says, "Actions speak louder than words." It's no different when it comes to witnessing an attorney's life outside of the office. When an attorney steps outside of his daily practice to help educate people about the numerous issues facing the elderly, it not only shows that interest in his career, but also his true dedication to the community at large.

It may also demonstrate that he has gathered a thorough and profound interpretation of the nuances of elder law. Hint: Search for lawyers who instruct the public about guardianship, long-term care, Medicare and Medicaid, mental health issues, retirement or any other issues relating to the disabled and elderly.
