Rick Law, founder of Law ElderLaw, has experienced the devastating impact that long-term dementia can have on a family. He has seen the incredible burden that is borne not only by the families of his clients, but also within his own family. He has watched as family members have exhausted their own health and emotional resources by being sacrificial caregivers. This sacrifice is a major motivator that has caused us to develop the services and systems of Law ElderLaw. We are dedicated to protecting and serving the elderly and those who love them.
