Episode Summary

Elder law is a challenging field that requires specialized knowledge and expertise. In this podcast episode, two experienced elder law attorneys discussed their experiences and insights on the topic.

They also talked about their business, which trains attorneys to navigate the hurdles of elder law practice. If you are an attorney contemplating a career in elder law, this podcast episode provides the top three tips on how to start in elder law, with success.

Prioritize Client Communication and Accessibility.

One crucial aspect of elder law practice is ensuring prompt and personalized client communication. The attorneys emphasize the importance of having a dedicated person to answer client calls, avoiding automated systems that can hinder meaningful interaction.

Since elder law often involves dealing with family members instead of the actual client, it’s crucial to inquire about the client’s living situation and specific needs during the initial call. By understanding their circumstances, you can offer reassurance and build rapport, enhancing their trust in your services.

Address Misinformation and Set Realistic Expectations.

Many clients come with preconceived notions or misinformation they may have encountered online. To overcome this, the attorneys recommend asking clients what they believe they need. This opens up an opportunity to address any misconceptions and explain professional recommendations.

By having an open dialogue, you can debunk inaccurate information and help clients make informed decisions based on accurate legal advice.

Establish Relationships with Referral Partners and Streamline Processes.

Building strong relationships with hospitals, rehab centers, nursing homes, and placement companies can significantly benefit your elder law practice. The attorneys suggest establishing connections with these referral partners, as they can direct clients to your services when appropriate.

Additionally, they emphasize the importance of streamlining your firm’s processes for Medicaid applications, a complex and time-consuming aspect of elder law. By setting clear expectations and keeping clients informed about the process, you can alleviate their concerns and provide a sense of transparency and trust.


Embarking on a career in elder law requires careful consideration and strategic planning.

By following the insights shared our two guest elder law attorneys, you can gain valuable tips to help you navigate this challenging field. From prioritizing client communication and addressing misinformation to building relationships with referral partners and streamlining processes, these recommendations can guide you in establishing a successful elder law practice.

Remember, by dedicating yourself to providing exceptional service and going the extra mile for your clients, you can make a positive impact during their most difficult times.
