Accomplished Elder Law Attorney to Appear on Talk Philly

Moorestown, NJ (Law Firm Newswire) May 27, 2011 - New Jersey elder law attorney Thomas D. Begley, III is making an appearance on “Talk Philly” on May 31 from noon to 12:30 p.m. Begley will discuss the five things every family should do to protect their assets for their spouse and children. The show will air on KYW-TV CBS 3 to remind viewers of the most important steps needed for adequate estate planning.

Begley is an accomplished, certified elder law attorney with decades of experience helping individuals and families throughout Pennsylvania and New Jersey. During the “Talk Philly” show, he will discuss how to avoid both living trust scams and substandard legal documents, as well as how to plan for special needs and other unique circumstances. Begley says it is also especially important to coordinate the beneficiary designations of non-probate assets and to know how to access public benefits for long term care.

“Many individuals have inadequate documents or haven’t even thought about long term planning,” Begley said. “Everyone needs to have a solid plan in place to protect their assets from high taxation, to preserve their legacy, and to give financial security to their spouse and children.”
