Enhance your Directory Profile

Show your expertise

The Experience Registry enhances your profile by highlighting practice areas for which you have strong legal expertise to fellow NAELA attorneys and the members of the public.

The Experience Registry has established itself as a considerable benefit to NAELA members. Listings are searchable through the online NAELA member directory, which provides consumers and professionals with a screening tool when looking for an Elder Law attorney. The NAELA website is referenced extensively by other attorneys, nurses, social workers, care managers, nursing home personnel, CPAs, financial planners and families who are looking for Elder Law attorneys to address their needs. The Registry is also included in the printed NAELA member directory. The Registry provides NAELA members an opportunity to display exactly what their experience is to these groups – and to each other.

Participation in the Experience Registry is not automatic. NAELA members may elect to participate in the program, providing they meet the requirements, register and present supporting documentation, and be in good standing with NAELA. Members will be able to list as many categories in which they are qualified, in as many states as they are licensed to practice law. To participate, send in your complete application and payment ($150) to the membership department.
