Esther C. Wang, Elder Law Attorney about me


Esther WangEsther C. Wang is an attorney who has been providing quality legal services since 1991. Esther is proud to be one of only two members of the American Academy of Estate Planning Attorneys in San Bernardino County, California. She is also a member of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorney, California State Bar Association, and the San Bernardino County Bar Association. Esther is one of few accredited attorneys in California who can represent veterans before the Veterans Administration, and at the time of this writing (November, 2008), the only accredited attorney (Accreditation Number 8902) in San Bernardino County. She is an Area Director of the National Care Planning Council and an approved Continuing Education Provider (No. 4359) of the Board of Behavioral Sciences of the State of California. She is frequently invited by hospitals and a continuing legal education provider to teach doctors, nurses, social workers and attorneys on legal topics.

For over 17 years, Esther has been dealing with medical-related legal issues faced by her clients. Esther worked for prominent law firms in California and New York prior to starting her law practice in San Bernardino in 1995. She has handled cases involving various disabilities and injuries, including acute and chronic neurological deficits, Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, cancers, autoimmune diseases, psychiatric illnesses, severe spinal and orthopedic injuries, lung diseases, infections, kidney failures and heart diseases. On behalf of her clients, Esther has litigated and argued cases in Federal District Courts, state Superior Courts, California Court of Appeals, Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board, Veterans Administration, Social Security Administration Office of Hearings and Appeals and the Appeals Council of Social Security Administration (highest judicial level) in Virginia.

Esther has been able to reach people who are concerned about protecting their families from the devastating legal effects of disability and death. Her law practice, The Elder and Disability Law Firm, champions the use of powers of attorney, trusts, annuities and other legal methods as proven ways to protect families and people with disabilities and to minimize the expense of nursing home care.
