The Academy of Florida Elder Law Attorneys (AFELA) is the Florida state chapter of the national organization known as the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA). There are many other state chapters of NAELA around the nation. AFELA is one of the largest chapters. Membership in AFELA requires membership in NAELA and an adherence to its aspirational standards for professional behavior.

AFELA was founded in 1993 as a professional association of attorneys who are dedicated to improving the quality of legal services provided to the elderly. Currently, it serves as the pre-eminent organization for private practice elder law attorneys in the State of Florida. Its primary focus is advanced level education, yet the Academy offers several CLE in-person programs and web-based programs on a wide range of topics in the elder law concentration. One of its most lauded membership benefits is the AFELA listserv which is an open forum for questions and answers among its members on nearly every elder law topic imaginable. If you are an elder law attorney in private practice, we are interested in having you join the AFELA membership. For more information, you may contact our administrator at jennifer@afela.org.
