On December 12, Trusts & Estates, Elder Law and Special Needs partner Robert M. Freedman and associate Alexis Gruttadauria will present the CLE program, “What Every Attorney Needs to Know About Elder Law.”
The program, which is part of Tarter Krinsky & Drogin’s CLE series, will focus on the most important legal and financial issues facing the growing aging population. Elderly clients worry about how they will manage their health care and finances for the rest of their lives and are particularly concerned about the effects of memory loss and dementia. About 15% of the population is affected by dementia by age 70 and that percentage increases to about 40% by age 90.
On November 15, Trusts & Estates Partner Robert M. Freedman will present “Ethical Considerations for Representing an Elderly Population” as a part of the New York State Bar Association CLE program, “Basics of Elder Law & Special Needs Practice,” which will be chaired by associate Alexis Gruttadauria.
