Learn How To Handle The Elder Law Matters You’re Bound To Encounter

Your clients are aging and living longer than ever. A longer life means longer-term living expenses  – and planning for unforeseen complications such as home health care, assisted living, a potential need for a nursing home, and large medical bills. In order to properly represent elder clients, you need to know how to help them get the services that they need while protecting their assets, planning for the future, and producing an estate plan that fulfills their wishes.

Don’t miss this popular annual program, updated for 2018, to gain the information that you need to know to properly represent both your senior clients and your aging clients that will soon become seniors. As an attendee, you’ll hear directly from a panel of highly experienced elder law practitioners as they provide you with solid strategies, practical pointers, the most important recent case law, current regulations, and (most importantly) common-sense approaches based upon decades of practice and the hundreds of elder law clients they have represented. You’ll walk away with, quite literally, everything you need to know to confidently (and successfully) handle the elder law matters you’re likely to encounter.
