In a systematic and practical fashion, the authors address each key practice issue and provide an overview of the basic rules and guiding statutes/regulations, in-depth analysis of elder law practice together with guiding case law, and step-by-step explanation of the advocacy process, revealing how law operates in the real world and where things can go wrong.
