What You’ll Learn in This Webinar

A lot has happened the past year in the areas of elder law and special needs planning. And with a presidential election coming up, there will be much more in store for these critical planning areas.

Join our team of nationally known elder law and special needs planning attorneys (and ElderCounsel owners), along with special guest David Goldfarb, Public Policy Senior Manager for the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA) for an in-depth look at the most impactful cases from the last year, as well as a look ahead at what Congress and federal agencies may be contemplating that could impact your practice.
