NAELA member attorneys not only provide legal advice to people with disabilities and their families, but they also fight for their needs through public policy.

In 1987, President Ronald Reagan proclaimed March “Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month,” calling upon Americans to provide the “encouragement and opportunities” necessary for people with developmental disabilities to reach their potential. The annual event aims to raise public awareness of the many abilities people with disabilities have.

National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA) member attorneys not only provide legal advice to people with disabilities and their families, but they also fight for their needs through public policy. NAELA supports legislation related to programs many people with disabilities rely on such as Medicaid and Social Security,” said NAELA President Shirley B. Whitenack, Esq.
