Begley Law Group Invites New Jersey Attorneys to Elder Law Crash Course

The Begley Law Group

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.

As Americans live longer and longer, elder law practices have grown and grown. Attorneys hoping to expand their practice into this area need to master a number of particular issues. 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.

Lawyers will travel from across the state to attend lectures and discussions on the core issues of this legal area. Each presentation will help build a thorough understanding of the needs of elder law clients, from early estate planning to trusts maintained years after a client’s passing. Attendees will learn the ins and outs of estate planning, long term care, Medicaid planning, estate administration, probate litigation, guardianship, third-party special needs trusts and more.

The considerable majority of the expert panel are part of Begley Law Group’s celebrated legal team. Thomas D. Begley Jr. will act as moderator and personally break down the basics of Medicaid trusts. 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.

General tuition is $200, and door registration will cost $220. For more information and to enroll, please visit NJICLE online.

These are usually stroke or accident victims or surgery patients who are doing rehabilitation. A significant percentage will remain in a nursing home for an extended period of time. These are usually Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s or other Dementia patients. A statistic widely quoted is that the average stay in a nursing home is 2.9 years. This statistic is somewhat misleading, because the persons receiving rehabilitation are often discharged in one month or [...]
  • FUNDING SPECIAL NEEDS TRUSTS
    by Thomas D. Begley, Jr., CELA Overview Estate planning attorneys are regularly called upon to draft trusts for their clients’ children with disabilities.
