Finding a CELA


Welcome to the National Elder Law Foundation

The National Elder Law Foundation is the only national organization certifying practitioners of elder and special needs law. NELF's Certified Elder Law Attorney designation is itself certified by the American Bar Association. There are over 400 CELAs in 48 states, and our numbers are growing steadily.

Are you looking for an attorney who has demonstrated expertise in special needs and elder law, who has passed a rigorous examination, who maintains continuing education and involvement standards, and who has been recognized by his or her peers and colleagues? This is the place to find that attorney -- a Certified Elder Law Attorney. Complete the query information above or locate a CELA by state.
