Law jobs helping seniors are one of the growing fields of careers for lawyers due to the aging population. Being an elder care lawyer is explained in this interview with elder law attorney Victoria Collier of the Elder and Disability Law Firm.

Victoria tells us that these types of lawyers are often confused with estate planning lawyers. She says that where estate planning deals with what do we do with your stuff when you die, elder law focuses on what do we do with YOU if you keep living. These types of lawyers often find themselves helping clients to plan for when they may need to go into a nursing home. Being a lawyer in this field involves working with seniors and spending time in their environment – so you need to enjoy that population you’d be serving.

Whether you’re in law school, debating whether you should go to law school or wondering what jobs to do with a law degree, you may want to check out elder care law. In the full interview at JDCOT, Victoria tells host Marc Luber how to break in to elder law jobs and explains a typical day, what skills and personality types best fit these careers for lawyers, and how to succeed once you’re there.
