THURSDAY AND FRIDAY, OCTOBER 4 & 5, 2018

PARK RIDGE MARRIOTT
300 BRAE BLVD
PARK RIDGE, NJ 

BOOK YOUR HOTEL ROOM AT THE GROUP RATE FOR THE FALL MEETING

The Fall Meeting will be an innovative look at how the aging of our country is affecting our society and our practice area. This one and a half day program tackles complex policy and practice issues facing today’s Elder Law and Special Needs Attorneys across New York State.  Sessions offer a broad perspective on national socioeconomic trends in health care delivery, technology, housing, taxation, and wealth transfer – creating a forum to develop adaptive practices to meet these challenges.  The overarching conference goal is to promote forward thinking and opportunities to evaluate the practice of law in the broader context of our changing society.

The newly renovated Park Ridge Marriott is conveniently located just 30 miles from NYC, just north of the George Washington Bridge, adjacent to the Hudson Valley and a short drive south of the Village of Nyack.  This site is accessible to both upstate/downstate New York while providing an ideal locale for autumn leaf peepers and apple pickers without the hustle and bustle of some of the surrounding areas. NY/NJ Transit info. and schedules for those taking public transportation are available at: www.njtransit.com 

MCLE topics will include: 

  • A Housing Options Panel
  • Drafting With Social Change And Technology In Mind
  • Addressing Financial Abuse Issues In Article 81 Proceedings
  • A Deep Dive Into Pensions, Social Security And Qualified Plans
  • Medicaid Updates and Transfer of Asset strategies
  • Experts Panel of Experienced Elder Law Practitioners: Lee Hoffman, Nancy Burner and Hyman Darling.
