Vero Beach, FL – June 1, 2017 – Carolyn Butler Norton, of the Vero Beach Florida Law office of Carolyn Butler Norton Esq., has become board certified in Elder Law by the Florida Bar. Certification is the highest level of recognition by The Florida Bar and displays an attorney's competency and experience in their area of law.

Certification in elder law – one of the fastest growing fields in the legal profession – will provide a measure of assurance to the public that the attorney has an in-depth working knowledge of the legal issues that impact the elderly.

Additionally, Ms. Norton had to receive the recommendation of her peers, as well as successfully complete a written exam that demonstrates superior competency in the field of elder law. Norton joins an elite group of less than 100 Florida attorneys that are certified in elder law and only 7 percent of all attorneys in Florida, in all practice areas combined, are board certified.

Carolyn Butler Norton, has practiced law for more than 35 years and elder law for over 9 years focusing her practice on long-term care planning, asset protection, healthcare and financial choices, and end of life decisions Her practice also includes other specialties, including guardianship, VA pension program assistance, special needs trusts and probate and administration.

Ms. Butler Norton is a passionate advocate for the senior and disabled population. She believes that the practice of Elder Law should be comprehensive, focusing on a Life Care Plan.
