NELF does suggests the following publications:Representing the Elderly Client by Thomas D. Begley Jr. and Jo-Anne Herina Jeffreys, Elder Law in a Nutshell and Advising the Elderly or Disabled Client by Lawrence Frolik, and Tax, Estate and Financial Planning for the Elderly by Rebecca Morgan and David English, and the Elder Law Answer book by Robert Fleming and Lisa Davis.
In addition, the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA) offers an Advanced Elder Law Review that focuses on elder and special needs law. Please contact Pam Yanni at 703-942-5711 x 231 or firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information.
