A perk of ElderCounsel membership is having access to ElderDocx®. We are constantly making improvements to the document drafting software and we are very excited about our latest update that was just released.
Here’s a list of the enhancements:
- The Oklahoma statutory Healthcare Power of Attorney was added.
- A required warning was added to the Tennessee nonstatutory Healthcare Power of Attorney.
- A new revocation option was added to the New York statutory Financial Power of Attorney.
- The revocation options were streamlined in the nonstatutory Financial Power of attorney.
- Power of direction language was added to the Florida Certification of Trust.
- Interview alerts pertaining to case law were updated.
- Added options to the revocable living trust to give a beneficiary the right to serve as trustee or cotrustee.
- Language was added to the Standalone Will to allow for the payment of burial and funeral expenses of the Testator.
- A new marketing module was added!
The marketing module is the first of its kind in ElderDocx. Normally, ElderDocx deals with legal documents, letters, retainer agreements, questionnaires, and the like. However, we wanted to give our members an edge in getting clients through the door!
Here’s a run-down of the new content in the marketing module, and when you would use each.

This letter can be sent as a bulk letter or to a specific addressee. You could send this letter to current clients that you have served in other areas, such as family law or business law, to let them know that you also handle elder law cases.
- Letter to Prospects – Promoting Services
This letter can also be sent as a bulk letter or to a specific addressee. You would send this letter to folks in your community that you haven’t worked with before, letting them know about the types of services you offer.

Other local attorneys can be a great referral source for clients who need your help. This letter details what types of cases would be appropriate to send your way.

A major part of elder law is getting clients qualified for Medicaid benefits to pay for long-term care. Nursing homes and assisted living facilities could serve as a great referral source for you, so send this letter to them to let them know why their patients might need your services.
