New Jersey Attorneys Go To Capitol Hill And Elder Law Retreat In Extensive Outreach Efforts
Moorestown, NJ (Law Firm Newswire) April 24, 2013 - The Begley Law Group's continued commitment to the rights of their clients includes attending and presenting at professional seminars.
The attorneys at Begley Law Group recently attended two significant outreach efforts as part of their ongoing support of clients, including individuals with special needs and their families, and the elderly.
On April 15-16, 2013, Kristen L. Behrens and Tom Begley, Jr., of Begley Law Group attended the Special Needs Alliance Spring Meeting in Washington, DC, where they heard speakers from the Social Security Administration and Easter Seals on Affordable Care Act and they participated in Hill Day, where members of the Alliance visited their Congressman and Senators.
"The visitations were part of an outreach to emphasize to U.S. Senators and representatives the place that many government programs have in the lives of adults and children with disabilities," commented New Jersey elder law attorney Thomas D. Begley, Jr.
Advocates for individuals with special needs work during Hill Day to make an in-person connection with leaders and staff to better foster relationships that can help support those individuals in need of federal social services.
On April 18-19, 2013 Tom Begley, Jr., and Dana E. Bookbinder of Begley Law attended the New Jersey Elder Law Retreat held in Long Branch, NJ. Tom also presented on the Future of Elder and Disability Law. Presented by the NJSBA Elder Law & Disability Law Section and the New Jersey Institute for Continuing Legal Education, The New Jersey Elder Law Retreat was designed to keep attorneys abreast of legal developments and support their efforts to maintain a high level of professional competence in elder law. The New Jersey Institute for Continuing Legal Education is well-regarded for the consistently high quality of the seminars it offers, and had been designated by the Supreme Court of the State of New Jersey as a place to provide the Skills and Methods Course, a part of the bar admission requirements until 2010.
