Elder Law: Important, But Sometimes Misunderstood

There is no actual body of statutory elder law. Rather, elder law is a collection of planning tools from across various practices and agencies that together address the needs of people as they age.

At Richmond, Virginia-based Coates & Davenport, P.C., our skilled lawyers address the full array of elder care issues, many of which are financial in nature — creating a plan that will stretch existing resources in combination with benefits' programs, allowing people to live out their lives in a comfortable way.

We start with basic things, like the importance of a will and powers of attorney, and then we move on to advance directives, gift tax issues, and a strategy of passing on life assets to the next generation.
