Elder Law Services

The Elder Law Firm of Clements & Wallace, P.L. has broad and extensive practice areas focused on meeting the complete legal needs of seniors. Our offices are located in Central Florida in the city of Lakeland. Our firm provides service throughout Central Florida and Alabama.

Elder law is a specialized area of law that is defined by the clients we serve rather than a technical type of legal problem. We provide a holistic approach by focusing on the needs of the client, both legal and non-legal. Our firm incorporates the services of a geriatric care manager to address the care needs of our clients and assist in identifying and accessing resources.

One of our most rewarding experiences in serving the elderly was our representation of Mr. Jim Robertson. Mr. Robinson suffered from ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease) and was alleged to be an incapacitated person as a result of his disease. In a highly litigated legal battle, we were successful in preserving Mr. Robinson’s rights. Here is a little about his story.

Elder law includes government benefits programs that serve seniors, such as Medicare and Medicaid. Laws and regulations for government benefit programs change frequently and often with little or no notice. By limiting our practice to the field of elder law, our clients can be assured that they receive up to date, accurate information.
