The advent of non-attorney document production mills presents an insidious danger to the public who unknowingly are misguided by these untrained entities. I urge all those who seek the aforementioned services to do so only with a qualified attorney.
(PRWEB) January 13, 2016
Elder law attorney Anthony J. Enea, managing partner at Enea, Scanlan & Sirignano, LLP in White Plains and Somers, N.Y., will lecture on the consequences of the unauthorized practice of law at the annual meeting of the National Association of Elder Law Attorney’s New York Chapter. Enea, a past president of the organization, will address the practical and legal implications of non-attorneys providing Medicaid planning services.
The program, “The Intersection of the Unlicensed Practice of Law and Unregulated Benefits Planning,” marks the latest speaking engagement for Anthony Enea, who has spent nearly three decades protecting the rights of seniors, the disabled and their families.
“Over the last decade, numerous non-attorney controlled entities have cropped up nationwide offering services in elder law planning including Medicaid eligibility and applications,” said Enea. “Many of these entities have branched into these services from traditional home care and geriatric care management services, while others are newly created. When a non-attorney provides such services the consequences are, in many cases, quite dangerous and financially disastrous.”
Named Westchester County’s Leading Elder Care Attorney at the Above the Bar Awards, Mr. Enea is the past chair of the New York State Bar Association’s Elder Law Section. His practice areas include elder law; Medicaid planning and applications; special needs planning; wills, trusts and estates; guardianships and estate litigation. He was named Best Lawyers’ 2016 Elder Law “Lawyer of the Year” in White Plains, a Top 25 “Super Lawyer” in Westchester County, and is currently president of the Westchester County Bar Foundation.
Enea continued, “The advent of non-attorney document production mills presents an insidious danger to the general public who unknowingly are misguided by these untrained entities. I urge all those who seek the aforementioned services to do so only with a qualified attorney.”
