Why You Should Attend
This year’s Institute will focus on key issues for attorneys who represent elderly clients or clients with aging parents. Experienced practitioners will discuss fundamental and evolving issues such as Medicaid eligibility; the new “Independent Assessor” process for obtaining MLTC Medicaid home care in New York; elder abuse; mediation and its use in elder law, guardianship, and estate disputes; veterans’ benefits; and ethical issues that frequently arise in elder law.
