Elder Law Clinic Celebrates 25 Years

Marcus Best

Heading to a home visit, Marcus Fields checks out a local landmark dating from the 30’s that is as old as some of his clients.

Since 1991, the Elder Law Clinic has provided free legal services to the community in Forsyth and surrounding counties.  The clinic is a program of Wake Forest School of Law, where students get practical experience under the supervision of an attorney.

The students get training in the general civil practice of law with an emphasis on the growing field of elder law.  The clinic gives students direct experience representing clients in a range of matters, including wills, guardianship, fraud and Medicaid.

To be a client of the Elder Law Clinic, a person must be at least age 60.  Also, they must have an income of less than $1,800 per month for a household of one, and less than $2,400 per month for a household of two.
