As America’s population ages, demand for elder law attorneys grows
By MARC DAVIS
Joseph Marrs, an attorney based in Houston who focuses his practice in estate and trust litigation, has noted an increase in his practice of elder law-related cases.
“Elder law entails a broad spectrum of services,” Marrs says. “Tax law, for example, which is often seen as part of elder law, is really an entire field itself.”
Marrs says he litigates a lot of disputes among heirs and beneficiaries, and that he’s argued many cases involving trusts and estates, execution of wills, power of attorney disputes and guardianship issues.
To serve the legal needs of an aging nation, he foresees an increase in judges and associate judges to handle the anticipated increase.
