Chapter of Elder Law Academy Forms
According to Edward H. Adamsky, who practices in Pelham, NH, “If your practice includes any dealings with elders or the disabled, you should consider joining the New Hampshire Chapter of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA).” Adamsky says that the legal needs of elders . . . and of the disabled, will be an enormous legal market for years to come. “You can get the knowledge you need by joining NH-NAELA.”
Adamsky stresses that Elder Law involves more than Medicaid planning. The legal issues that elders face are broad and diverse. “Elder Law Attorneys need to know about all of the various government benefit programs: Medicare, Social Security Retirement, Social Security Disability, Medicaid, and veteran’s benefits [and much more].”
A NH-NAELA dinner meeting will be held on Wednesday, June 27, 2007, at Fratello’s Ristorante Italiano in Manchester. The meeting starts at 5:30 p.m. with networking and cocktails, followed by a buffet dinner at 6:00 p.m. A panel discussion follows. The cost per person is $35 for NH NAELA members and $45 for non-members. The panel members include:
- Marge Dineen, Estate Supervisor for the Office of Public Guardian, Inc.
- Debbie Gaudreault/Larochelle, Vice President of Residential Resources, Inc.
- Anne Huff, the guardian in the New Hampshire Supreme Court appeal concerning special needs trusts, Appeal of Emily Huff, No. 2005-856.
- Margaret Lins, Vice President/Senior Services and Community Health at Crotched Mountain.
- Joanna Theberge, Long Term Support Counselor for the Manchester Office of Hillsborough County ServiceLink Resource Center.
