Celebrate Elder Law Month

You’re invited to join me in observance of National Elder Law Month. I will be conducting a free “Estate Planning Essentials” Workshop.

When: Wednesday, May 23, 2012

Time: 10:00am to 12:00pm

Where: Tufts Library, 46 Broad Street, Weymouth

RSVP: 617-769-9843

The program is part of a nationwide observance of National Elder Law Month during the month of May.  National Elder Law Month is sponsored by the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA). 

This educational workshop will focus on how seniors can remain in control of their assets, retain all income from their assets, and qualify for Medicaid. Attendees will also learn how to protect their family from nursing home costs and their children’s indiscretions. With more than 37.8 million Americans 65 years or older and with baby boomers growing older, the importance of planning for one’s legal needs has become essential.

Elder Law is a specialized area that involves representing, counseling and assisting seniors, and their families in connection with a variety of legal issues, with a primary emphasis on promoting the highest quality of life for individuals. When clients visit an elder law attorney, they generally present problems beyond the need for a will or a power of attorney. I am familiar with the network of services and providers who assist clients effectively.
