In April of this year, I received the Marilyn Askin Lifetime Achievement Award from the New Jersey State Bar Association’s Elder and Disability Law Section during its annual retreat in Philadelphia, PA. The Lifetime Achievement Award, the Elder and Disability Law Section’s highest honor, is bestowed on an attorney with an established history of distinguished service who has made significant contributions in the field of elder and disability law throughout his or her career. I previously blogged about the Lifetime Achievement Award here.

Although I formally received notice in April that I was the recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award, I did not receive the plaque commemorating the award until recently. A photo of the plaque appears above. I was particularly proud of receiving the award after reading the inscription on the plaque:

The Lifetime Achievement Award is made in Recognition and Appreciation for Outstanding Advocacy and Service to New Jersey’s Seniors, those with Disabilities, and the Legal Profession.   

I am truly honored to have been selected to receive the Lifetime Achievement Award, and I thank my fellow elder law and special needs planning attorneys for this outstanding recognition.
