Legal Advocates for Seniors and Their Loved Ones
Experienced in Dispute Resolution & Successful Litigation
We are Focused on our Clients' Unique Needs & Custom Goals
In our aging society – where the average U.S. life expectancy is 78 years — families are rewarded with parents living longer lives. An unfortunate outcome is that more and more members of our aging population experience dementia and other physical disabilities that limit their ability to continue to care for themselves.
Similarly, individuals with intellectual disabilities (ID) and developmental disabilities (DD) live longer than in previous generations, and they live and work in the community instead of spending their lives hidden away in institutions. Families of individuals with ID or DD want to afford their loved ones the most freedom available while protecting them from situations they do not understand.
Weinberg Elder Law focuses its practice on protecting our most vulnerable and treasured populations. We help families find legal solutions to protect their loved ones from harm, and we will engage the courts to resolve disputes when their well-being has been threatened.

Guardianships & Conservatorships
When an elderly or disabled individual cannot protect themselves from their Guardians, Fiduciaries, or the world generally, intervention is required to restore the security of this vulnerable person and prevent further abuse.
Dispute Resolution & Fiduciary Litigation
When fiduciaries fail to carry out their designated responsibilities caring for vulnerable populations, it may become necessary to formally call their actions into question before a mediator or the courts.
Elder Law & Elder Abuse Protection
When individuals lack the capacity to make decisions on their own, courts can create Guardianships and Conservatorships to protect these vulnerable adults from poor decision-making.
