Since becoming an attorney in 1985, I have experienced the area of Elder Law grow from what was an occassional question about powers of attorney and guardianships, to a full-blown, specialized practice area. It hit home when I saw the practical effects of poor planning when my wife became executor of her uncle's estate. The estate left a lage sum of money to a severely disabled person, who was then in danger of losing all of his benefits-including his apartment in a specialized home.

Lawyers have to spend time finding out, not only about the individual client, but about his or her family, taking a "holistic" approach to the preparation of these documents, and helping with these issues.
