As elder law becomes a more popular field, there is some good news and there is some bad news.
The Baby Boomer generation is growing older and entering retirement, making elder law one of the fastest growing legal fields. This is resulting in more new attorneys trying their hands at elder law, according to Private Wealth in “Law Students Increasingly Eye Elder Law .”
On one hand, this is extremely good news for those in need of elder law services. The more attorneys there are who are knowledgeable about elder law, the more likely it is that seniors in need of help can get it. However, there can be hidden dangers in hiring new attorneys, especially if those attorneys did not plan to practice elder law and take the appropriate courses in school.
New attorneys who are still learning a field, may not always have the experience and knowledge for every task.
