Moorestown, NJ (Law Firm Newswire) July 22, 2014 - On November 4th, the expert elder law attorneys of the Begley Law Group will teach a one-day “crash course” on the essentials of elder law for legal practitioners.

To serve this need in a time-saavy legal culture, the Begley Law Group has condensed the essential information into an intensive “Elder Law in a Day” crash course.

Ethan Ordog will guide attendees through the legal intricacies of guardianship in elder law. Kathleen A.Browning Sheridan will discuss estate administration, while Gary Mazart will discuss estate planning as it specifically pertains to middle-class America. Later in the afternoon, Kristen Behrens will expand on elder law administration to focus on trust administration.
The day will close with a panel discussion on the Windsor Decision, which has impacted tax and public benefits. This event is presented in cooperation with the NJSBA Elder & Disability Law Section. The course has been approved by the Board on Continuing Legal Education of the Supreme Court of New Jersey. Attendance will total 7.3 hours of CLE credit.
