Elder Law & Special Needs

Elder Law & Special Needs

Cramer & Anderson elder care attorneys focus on helping the elderly and their families deal with the legal issues that arise with age. We work with our clients to assure that seniors receive necessary care and that their rights are fully protected. We adapt to the changing age of clients from Depression-era elderly individuals to baby-boomers approaching retirement.

Our particular areas include accessing state and federal benefits for long term care such as Medicaid and Medicare, helping seniors stay at home as long as safely possible, preservation of assets to assure quality of life and protection of the elderly from physical and financial abuse from a family member or caregiver.  Families are often in crisis when they find themselves in need of an elder law attorney. We provide a compassionate process with our representation. Our experience with area long-term care facilities, care management teams, home caregivers and family members allows our elder law lawyers to provide legal advice that makes the difficulties that sometimes come with aging manageable.

Historically, elder law focused on older adults. Cramer & Anderson attorneys are increasingly finding that their knowledge and experience can be applied to younger clients with disabilities. It may include those who receive a diagnosis of a disabling disease such as multiple sclerosis or ALS, or those who have been injured to the point they can no longer work. The common interests among these groups regarding long-term care and applicable public assistance programs allows us to assist both populations.

Cramer & Anderson elder law attorneys are members of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA) and its Connecticut chapter, CT-NAELA.
