Elder Law Section

The Elder Law Section presents programs that help keep attorneys informed about Elder Law issues and also presents a monthly Conservatorship Workshop as a joint project with the Superior Court.  Generally, there are two areas of practice of Elder Law. The first is transactional work, closely related to estate planning, which often focuses on eligibility for various benefits, such as Medi-Cal.  The second is litigation, including conservatorship proceedings, financial elder abuse and physical elder abuse/neglect. In addition, Elder Law often overlaps with other practice areas when a client, or interested party, is over the age of 65.  Given the breadth of what is, or can become, an Elder Law issue, and the increasing portion of the aging population, many practitioners can benefit from what the Elder Law Section offers.

Meetings for board members occur the first Wednesday of every month at the Demiris Law, P.C., Walnut Creek office located at 700 Ygnacio Valley Road, Suite 140, Walnut Creek, CA 94596.  All meetings will be conducted by zoom during the pandemic with information to be provided upon request by email to [email protected] or [email protected].  There are currently vacancies. People who are interested in joining the board should contact Konstantine “Kosta” Demiris, Douglas W. Housman, or any of the board members.
