Elder Law Practice

The rights and needs of senior citizens in our society are sometimes all too easy to overlook or ignore. Plus, as more options and programs for seniors become available, it can become harder and harder to deal with complex guidelines and bureaucratic red tape.

You need to know the Nursing Home Resident’s Bill of Rights.

Many elder law and probate attorneys will not continue to represent you if the matter they are handling becomes contested. As an experienced trial attorney, Kurt Olson will stay with you, and will make sure your case is properly and zealously presented.
