Peggy Sheahan Knee has been designated as a Certified Elder Law Attorney for another 5 years by the National Elder Law Foundation. What does this designation mean and why is it important in considering an attorney for your Elder Law needs?

The National Elder Law Foundation (NELF) is the only national organization accredited by the American Bar Association (ABA) to certify practitioners of elder and special needs law. NELF’s Certified Elder Law Attorney (CELA) designation represents confirmation of a lawyer’s exceptional expertise in the practice of elder and special needs law.
The National Elder Law Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to the development and improvement of the professional competence of lawyers practicing in the area of elder law.

A Certified Elder Law Attorney (CELA) indicates that an elder law and special needs practitioner has achieved the highest level of excellence in the performance of their profession. But earning the CELA designation means so much more to seniors, families, and people with special needs who are seeking the services of an expert in whom they can have full confidence that their needs will get the attention of a highly skilled elder law specialist.
