NEW BRUNSWICK – The December 2022 edition of New Jersey Lawyer is dedicated to elder law and the legal considerations for aging adults and people with disabilities.
The issue, a publication of the New Jersey State Bar Association, features 10 articles that serve as a road map for attorneys who offer legal advice on issues that arise when helping clients navigate Medicare, estate planning and long-term care facilities.
Everyone deals with mortality differently and some age more gracefully than others, according to Brian R. Lehrer and Lauren I. Mechaly, who served as special editors for the edition.
“The reality of aging and mortality is something few, if anyone, want to face. Regardless of the deeper questions which affect all of us, there are practical considerations that everyone hopes they have the foresight to address,” Lehrer and Mechaly wrote.
