The Project

The University of Miami houses the Health and Elder Law Clinic. Rather than limiting my project to one issue, my project focuses on attacking a variety of legal issues that affect the elderly such as healthcare, estate planning, guardianships, probate, SSI/SSDI, housing and immigration. Through community education, healthcare professional trainings and direct representation, I assist Miami-Dade County low-income elderly to overcome a variety of legal issues.
