Attorney Profile

Gerard John Woods


Gerard Woods has been practicing in the field of elder law since 1994. He began practicing in this area because many of his estate planning clients needed help responding to the legal and financial challenges of parents or spouses suffering from Alzheimer's disease, dementia or other illnesses.

The Elder Care Law Center was founded to meet those specific needs and continues to this day to provide compassionate legal care to the elderly in that and a variety of other areas.

The Elder Care Law Center provides representation in elder law areas including Medicaid planning, estate planning, advance directives, guardianships, probate and nursing home litigation.

If you or a family member has an elder law need, attorney Gerry Woods is happy to discuss your concerns and help you come up with a plan of action. We encourage you to contact us and schedule a consultation with a lawyer.
