Rick L. Law, J.D., is the founder and managing partner of Law Elder Law, LLP, a firm dedicated to being advocates for the frail and elderly. The company has become the number one law firm in the state of Illinois in serving seniors and those who love them. Baby boomers, retirees, mature seniors and frail elders all find valuable legal solutions designed to provide financial safety, simplicity and success.
Rick’s journey into elder law began in 2000, when he received a call from a friend of the family whose husband had just been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. There was panic in her voice because she feared she would lose everything, including her home. At that time, Rick vowed to find the answers for this caller, and in doing so, he founded a law firm that provides comfort, reassurance and companionship for clients who are in frightening life circumstances.
Many of Rick’s clients seek Law Elder Law’s advice when they face pain, a frightening diagnosis, the enormity of end-of-life decision-making, or when carrying the crushing burden of a loved one with a long-term disability or the frailties of aging.
Rick received his Juris Doctor of Laws from Northern Illinois University College of Law. He focuses his practice on elder law, which includes taxation, estate protection, disability, Medicaid, Veterans Administration benefits and guardianships.
He is a Veterans Administration Accredited Attorney, a member of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys, the Elder Abuse Sub-committee of the 16th Judicial Circuit Court, the Leading Lawyer Network, Elder Counsel, Special Needs Alliance, Academy of Special Needs, and the National Organization of Veterans Advocates. He is also an author and frequent speaker at numerous professional and public seminars nationwide.
In 2012 and 2013, Rick was voted the Number One Elder Law Attorney in the State of Illinois by Leading Lawyer Magazine.
When he is not writing, teaching, or lawyering, Rick loves all things “cowboy,” including riding a good horse. Born in 1950, he grew up with cinema and TV cowboys as his heroes. Hopalong Cassidy, Roy Rogers and Zorro inspired his love of horses and the Old West.
He lives in Oswego, Illinois with his wife Rosemary. They have four children (Adam, Diana, Catherine, and Ethan) and four grandchildren (Lucy, Daphne, Evan, and Phoebe).
