Welcome and opening remarks regarding the future of elder law and how artificial intelligence, cryptocurrency and what the new digital landscape might look like in the years to come.

Valerie Peterson, J.D., CEO, ElderCounsel Thursday, 1:00 - 1:15 p.m.

The Phone Has Stopped Ringing, Now What?

In 2004, more than 90% of households had an operational landline. Now it’s significantly less than 50%. Smartphones have effectively replaced landlines, but not everyone is using them to talk. In fact, studies show most people prefer social media and mobile messaging over calls and emails. Has your law practice responded to these changes? During this session you will do a “communication check up” to determine how effective your communication strategies are, while learning more effective ways to allow clients and referral sources to interact with you, resulting in more clients and more revenue.

Louis Pierro, J.D. and Valerie Peterson, J.D. Thursday, 1:15 - 2:15 p.m.

Your Clients Are Investing in Cryptocurrency – Are You Prepared to Help Them Plan with It?

Recent data shows the 55 and older group is more heavily invested in cryptocurrency than their younger counterparts. Cryptocurrency isn’t like any other type of asset your client may own. Understanding how cryptocurrency is owned, how it can be transferred, and how to inherit are a must, as failing to understand this new type of currency can result in a loss of wealth that cannot be recovered. During this session you’ll learn how to handle the transfer of cryptocurrency, and the opportunities to set yourself apart as a professional who is knowledgeable in this area.

Matthew T. McClintock, J.D., TEP Thursday, 2:30 - 3:30 p.m.

How to Expand Your Practice and Profits with Existing Technology

Technology is and will continue to play an integral role in senior living and elder care. As the shortage of caregivers becomes more acute, and families struggle to keep their loved ones at home, elder law attorneys can team up with care coordinators to introduce clients to sensors, cameras, bracelets that monitor the movement of a dementia patient and notify medical staff and family, implants that send vital signs directly to a health care provider and apps that alert caregivers of important health and financial changes. These items as part of the "Internet of Things" available today to help round out your business and make your services more valuable to clients. Think of technology as a partner for life care planning services that can give your practice an edge and create a new recurring revenue stream.

Panel includes:
Louis Pierro, J.D., Founder of EverHome Care Advisors and Pierro, Connor & Strauss, LLC
Chris Faherty, Chief Growth Officer of Call9
Liz Loewy, Co-Founder and COO of EverSafe

Panel discussion Thursday, 3:45 - 5:00 p.m.

How Would You Like to Die? Important Conversations We Should Be Having but May Be Avoiding

Dementia is a disease that is only gaining momentum, particularly with our senior population. Now more than ever, seniors have choices about how they want to live and die with dementia. Unfortunately, without your help and being comfortable with these topics, many families will miss the opportunity to learn what their loved one wants, and how to make sure those wishes are carried out legally.

Compassion and Choices is the nation’s oldest, largest and most active nonprofit organization committed to improving care and expanding options for the end of life. We are honored to have Jonathan Patterson lead us in a discussion on end of life discussions we should be having with clients, and how to guide them in making these important decisions.
