New Jersey Elder Law Firm Offers Free Asset Protection Seminar
Moorestown, NJ (Law Firm Newswire) September 21, 2012 - Begley Law Group will host free seminars throughout the Moorestown area in October to help individuals and their loved ones learn how to properly plan for long-term care.
The team of New Jersey elder law attorneys is skilled in protecting assets and helping clients utilize government benefits such as Medicaid and Veteran’s Aid and Attendance.
“It is never too early to start strategizing about how to protect your savings and the legacy you want to leave to your family and relatives,” said New Jersey elder law attorney Dana E. Bookbinder. “Nursing home care adds up, and without sufficient planning, your savings could be wiped out.”
The free seminars are held in the morning, early afternoon and evening, and anyone interested in protecting their assets is encouraged to attend. If an individual is nearing a transition to a long-term care facility or is already in one, these seminars are particularly important. Begley Law Group, PC, has been a leader in elder law and estate planning law for more than 75 years, and every day they counsel the elderly and disabled with solid financial strategies to preserve their assets.
“You and your family deserve to keep the assets you have worked your whole life for,” stated Bookbinder. “During these seminars, we will discuss all of the methods you can use to help maintain your legacy.”
