Hi; I'm new here. I'm so glad I found you folks! I am learning so much already -- I didn't even know about durable powers of attorney before I came here. Anyway, I've searched the threads for advice on finding a good elder care attorney and I still feel like I'd like some of your thoughts. I saw the recommendation for http://www.naela.org/ and I did check their site, but they give very little info on the attorneys in my area. Is them just being listed there a good sign of quality? I did check Yelp and found a highly rated office in my area, but I could use a little guidance on a good path: Do I meet with a few lawyers first? Should I prepare questions ahead of time? Do they usually charge for the first meeting? (Background: My mom is 78 and still active, but we're close, and I have agreed to do whatever I can so she can stay in her home for the rest of her life. She's only now starting to have issues with her driving getting worse, forgetting things, falling, etc., but she's still pretty independent, and we want to make sure everything's easiest for us both if she gets ill or incapacitated. I moved into an apartment on her property 3 years ago to be closer, because she's having more hospitalizations, etc., in the last few years. She has a living will and is leaving me the house, but I don't care if I get anything as long as she is happy and safe in her home.) Thanks for any help you can give me.
