National Elder Law Month

What Is It?
In May, elder law attorneys throughout the country contribute a great deal to their communities this month by educating seniors about their legal options and by providing pro bono services. By setting up activities in your area, you can help spread the word about the mission of NAELA — to establish members as the premier providers of legal advocacy, guidance, and services to enhance the lives of seniors and people with disabilities.

Ways to Celebrate

Reach out to the community and your clients in a variety of ways that will benefit not just the community, but also your Elder Law practice.
