Articles appearing in NAELA News may not be regarded as legal advice. The nature of elder law and special needs planning practice makes it imperative that local law and practice be consulted before advising clients. Statements of fact and opinion are the responsibility of the author and do not imply an opinion or endorsement on the part of the officers or directors of NAELA unless otherwise specifically stated as such.

NAELA News has two complementary purposes: to communicate the activities, goals, and mission of its publisher, the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys; and simultaneously, to seek out and publish information and diverse views related to elder law and special needs planning.
