National Aging and Law Institute Presentation Focuses on the Next Generation of Law Firm Leaders

Moorestown, NJ (Law Firm Newswire) November 10, 2011 - New Jersey elder law attorney Thomas D. Begley, Jr. of the Begley Law Group, PC will lead a seminar along with attorney Andrew H. Hook from Oast & Hook at the National Aging & Law Institute & Advanced Boot Camp this week in Boston, Mass. The presentation “Training the Next Generation” will be given Friday, Nov. 11 for elder and special needs law professionals.

“Elder law, estate planning, and special needs law firms can benefit by focusing on the long-term viability of their firm early on,” said Begley Jr. “Just as a lawyer would do for a client, it pays to look inward periodically to see which individuals are going to be the future, key attorneys in your organization and how you can train and teach that next generation to succeed.”

The presentation is packed with information on how to recruit, retain and grow a specialized law practice and plan for critical turning points with the firm’s longstanding rainmakers. Planning early on, whether that means a succession plan, leveraging the firm’s practice areas, or even selling it years down the road, requires a team effort. Firms of all sizes can benefit by attending the presentation so that surprises do not hurt a firm’s livelihood should a key employee pass away, become disabled, or retire without a successor.

“Law firms can take a lot of inspiration from big business and even the military to take a systematic approach to running their business and planning for its future,” said Begley, who is a past NAELA President’s Award recipient and Fellow of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys.

Adequate planning will also garner more client satisfaction as there will be a seamless transition from the senior attorneys to associate attorneys and other staff that bring their own unique strengths to the firm. “Those attorneys that exemplify the firm’s culture and commitment to client loyalty are invaluable assets,” said Begley. “Making them leaders will help continue the firm’s branding and business efforts for many years to come.”

Begley Law Group, PC has more than 75 years of experience in elder law and life planning in Southern New Jersey and Philadelphia. The firm is called on to lead lectures, author books, and represents individuals and families for all their elder law, estate, government benefits, and special needs concerns.

  • THE BENEFITS OF BLOODLINE TRUSTS
    by Thomas D. Begley, Jr., CELA What is a Bloodline Trust? A Bloodline Trust is a trust for the benefit of children and/or grandchildren. Rather than leaving the monies outright to children or grandchildren, money is left in a Spendthrift Trust with no withdrawal rights. If the child or grandchild is reliable, they can be appointed trustee of their own trust under the provisions of the New Jersey Trust Code. If a lawsuit or divorce is filed against the child, that child is removed as trustee and a successor trustee replaces that child. Upon termination of the lawsuit or divorce, [...]
  • THE INTERPLAY BETWEEN ABLE ACCOUNTS AND SPECIAL NEEDS TRUSTS
    by Thomas D. Begley, Jr., Esquire, CELA An ABLE account is an account established for the benefit of an individual with disabilities. While most people point to the fact that the earnings on the ABLE account are tax free as the chief benefit of these accounts, I believe that a much more significant advantage is that the individual with disabilities or a family member can control the money in the account. The purpose of the ABLE Act is to permit people with disabilities to save money in and withdraw funds from their ABLE accounts to pay for disability-related expenses, in [...]
