Donald D. Vanarelli Named To The New Jersey Super Lawyers List, Again

We are pleased to announce that Donald D. Vanarelli has been recognized as a 2020 New Jersey Super Lawyer in Elder Law. This is the 14th consecutive year in which Mr. Vanarelli has been named to New Jersey’s Super Lawyers list.

Super Lawyers is a rating service of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high-degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The patented selection process includes independent research, peer nominations and peer evaluations. Bar associations and courts across the country, including the New Jersey Supreme Court, have recognized the legitimacy of the Super Lawyers selection process.

In addition, Mr. Vanarelli has been Certified as an Elder Law Attorney since 1998. Elder Law, which includes Special Needs Planning, is a legal specialty focusing on the legal needs of seniors and people with disabilities. To be certified in Elder Law, an attorney must: (1) Have practiced Elder Law for at least five years, (2) Had substantive involvement in the practice areas that make up Elder Law, including estate planning and trust administration; probate litigation and will contests; disability planning, including guardianships and special needs trusts; laws protecting the elderly and disabled against abuse, neglect, and exploitation; nursing home issues; and, qualifying for Medicare, Medicaid and other public benefits. (3) Passed a full day written exam, (4) Received references from five Certified Elder Law attorneys, and, (5) Demonstrate substantial involvement in the representation of disabled clients with special needs.

Of the over 85,000 licensed attorneys in New Jersey, fewer than 60 have been recognized as Certified Elder Law Attorneys. Of those Certified Elder Law Attorneys in New Jersey, very few have been recognized as Super Lawyers in Elder Law. Mr. Vanarelli is one of very few Certified Elder Law Attorneys in New Jersey who has been consistently named to the Super Lawyers list.

“I’m honored to be selected to the 2020 Super Lawyers list in New Jersey for Elder Law,” said Donald D. Vanarelli, Esq. “Super Lawyers is one of the most respected ratings organizations in the legal field. I am honored that my colleagues think highly enough of me to nominate me,” Vanarelli added.

About The Program:

Few problems are as upsetting and concerning to elder clients and their families as those connected with ill health. Navigating the health care and insurance system can be frustrating, confusing, and difficult. Aging clients and their families often turn to their attorneys to guide them as they deal with chronic and acute illness as well as declining capability. As a result, lawyers need knowledge of the medical side of elder law to complement the related practice areas which deal with financial planning, benefits, and relationships, such as trusts & estates, Medicaid eligibility, and family law.

This seminar will provide you with the information you need to ensure that you can help your clients protect their physical and financial well-being. Seasoned elder law attorneys will take you through some of the most common needs and pressing legal issues – as well as the latest updates in law and procedure. You’ll walk away with both the tools and confidence you need to successfully handle medical-related matters for your senior clients and their families.
