Great Meeting!

I’ve just returned from the NYSBA Elder Law Section Summer Meeting in Philadelphia which I co-chaired. I am very pleased that the many months of work in putting this meeting together were well worth it. Judging from the very positive comments of the attendees, the meeting was quite a success. The 141 attorneys in attendance heard great speakers on topics including irrevocable trusts, annuities and promissory notes, Medicaid issues, power of attorney issues, special needs trust cases, and waivered services. Ideas and information were freely exchanged, particularly in the interactive sessions. Our evening event and dinner at the Constitution Center was a highlight for all including the 33 children of all ages who accompanied their parents.
