The legal community must stay current with what assistance is available for families and how to access that assistance.
Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) September 18, 2008
As more and more of our nation's middle-aged inherit the task of managing the long-term care of aging parents, they are frequently turning to the legal community for help. The result is a boom in the field of Elder Law, as clients seek assistance navigating the maze of public benefits and solutions for their loved ones -- while protecting their own financial futures.
On October 17, 2008, Charlotte's aro will present a half-day workshop specifically for attorneys, entitled ''The Changing Face of Elder Law,'' at the Renaissance Charlotte SouthPark Hotel. Nationally recognized Elder Law Attorney Tim Takacs returns to Charlotte for his second such workshop, but will be joined this year by co-presenter Nicole Vandiver Bryan. Bryan is also an Elder Law Attorney with The Estate & Elder Law Firm of Vandiver & Bryan of Cornelius, NC.
Tim Takacs, author of A Guide to Elder Law Practice, is nationally recognized for his pioneering work in the field of law. He is credited with being one of the first Elder Law attorneys in the nation to assemble an interdisciplinary team of experts to provide integrated client care. His innovations have ''transformed the practice of Elder Law in the US.''
"The field of Elder Law is growing up alongside a generation that is caring for both aging parents -- and their own children," comments Takacs. "The legal community must stay current with what assistance is available for families and how to access that assistance."
A 1999 graduate of Campbell University with a BA in Political Science from UNC, Bryan will also offer her perspective on this important topic. "Today Elder Law Attorneys are a critical part of putting together a Life Care plan that works," comments Bryan. The Estate & Elder Law Firm of Vandiver & Bryan is a sponsor for the workshop Attorneys who attend ''The Changing Face of Elder Law'' may earn 3.0 CLE credits.
