The National Elder Law Foundation (NELF) is the only national organization certifying practitioners of elder and special needs law. NELF’s Certified Elder Law Attorney designation is itself certified by the American Bar Association. There are nearly 500 CELAs across the country, and our numbers are growing steadily.
Are you looking for an attorney who has demonstrated expertise in elder law and special needs, passed a rigorous examination, maintains continuing education and involvement standards, and has been recognized by his or her peers and colleagues? This is the place to find that attorney — a Certified Elder Law Attorney (CELA). You can use the “Find a CELA” page to locate a CELA by state.
