COURSE TOPICS

Recent Developments
R. Shawn Majette

Cases, statutes, regulations … keep up to date!

VA Benefits
Bart Barton

Veteran benefits are a beneficial tool, much like Medicare, Medicaid, Special Needs Trusts, etc., that can and should be included as a useful implement in the toolbox of a practitioner of elder law. This session will review recent changes in VA regulations, address advanced practice techniques, and provide suggestions for integrating veteran benefits planning in an elder law practice.
Special Needs Trusts
Ann McGee

A staple of an elder law practice is drafting special needs trusts. One size does not fit all! What is the difference between different types of special needs trusts and their alternatives (such as an ABLE accountant or pooled trust?) When should each one be used? What are the benefits of each alternative?
Asset Protection
Tim Palmer

Protecting assets from long-term care costs involves detailed analysis of the client’s assets, income, estate planning goals, and family dynamics. This session will cover several examples of asset protection planning scenarios with a variety of financial situations. It will look at single- and married-client examples that have immediate long-term care costs as well as clients that have long-range planning concerns and explore various strategies that apply to various client concerns and situations.
Guardianships
Ken Labowitz

Guardianship litigation might have been a quiet backwater in the past, but no more. Intense and expensive litigation around who has responsibility for an incapacitated individual and his or her assets is a reality. Techniques and tips and avoidance of traps will be discussed with new case law relevant to the important issue of attorney fees.
Ethics
Jeremy Pryor

In the intersections of ethics rules and elder law practice, complicated issues develop. This session will address some of the perennial concerns common to elder law, analyze recent cases and decisions related to the practice, and assist attorneys to navigate the intersections with knowledge and wisdom.
