Find the legal support you need into the future

As you grow older, personal legal issues can grow more complex. Getting things wrong or failing to protect yourself at this more vulnerable stage of life, can affect how you live out your “freedom” years.

The lawyers in our Elder Law team are here to help you grow older without the stress and worry of these increasingly complex legal issues.

Catherine Henry leads our Elder Law team. She is highly experienced in the comprehensive and specialised field of Elder Law and passionate about helping clients in their later years.

What is Elder Law?

While wills and estates might come to mind, the field of Elder Law is about much more.

Around the age of 55 years and beyond, these are some of the other issues and decisions that an experienced Elder Lawyer can help you with:

  • downsizing from the family home into new accommodation
  • transitioning to retirement
  • moving into a manufactured home, retirement village or aged care facility
  • future medical care arrangements
  • making decisions about financial affairs, now and into the future
  • protecting yourself from elder abuse.

“I think Elder Law might conjure up images of wills and estates but there’s an enormous amount of legal territory to cover. A specialist Elder Lawyer does so much more than that, and it’s so important to engage with someone who has specialist expertise in Elder Law.”
