"Protect Your Independence Against the Risks of Disability"

If you have a health crisis, are you prepared? Do you know who is legally authorized to make critical decisions for you if you cannot? Without thoughtful planning prepared while you are well, a Court can give broad rights to your legally defined next of kin who may not be your family of choice. Likewise, with a carefully drafted Will or Trust, your assets may pass to your next of kin rather than to the loved ones you would want to inherit.

What if you require nursing home care or long term care at home or in an assisted living facility? Do you have the Estate Planning documents required to get the care you need and to protect yourself, your family of choice, and your assets?

Certified Elder Law Attorneys Lucy Budman and Patrick Curley will teach attendees about advanced directives, MassHealth (Medicaid) planning and eligibility, asset protection strategies, the five-year look back period, and Trust planning. The presentation is offered in connection with the 2017 Elder Law Education Program, which is sponsored by the Massachusetts Bar Association with support from MassNAELA.

The presentation is ideal for seniors, their families and their allies interested in learning about Estate Planning and Asset Protection. To reserve a space, please RSVP to Curley Law Firm LLP at 781.245.2222 or info@curleylawfirm.com.

The speakers are among just 23 Certified Elder Law Attorneys (CELAs) in MA.

Tuesday, May 2, 2017 at 6:30 p.m., Elder Law Presentation at Windrose at Woburn
"Getting Your Ducks in a Row - Protecting Yourself and Loved Ones in Crisis -- Estate Planning & Guardian/Conservatorship "

On Tuesday, May 2nd Windrose at Woburn will offer a free Elder Law presentation by Certified Elder Law Attorney Patrick Curley of Curley Law Firm LLP in Wakefield.

Entitled "Getting Your Ducks in a Row - Protecting Yourself and Loved Ones in Crisis -- Estate Planning & Guardian/Conservatorship". The presentation will take place at Windrose at Woburn, 857 Main Street, Woburn, at 6:30 p.m. A light dinner will be served at 6:00 p.m.

Attorney Curley stated, "most seniors have not done the legal planning necessary to protect themselves against the ‘what if’ scenarios in the future. Often they are bombarded with conflicting advice from folks who are not experts in this area of law. This presentation will help seniors and their families learn their lawful options so they can make informed decisions for the future. The key here is that seniors are living longer than ever before – but often requiring assistance as they age – so it is imperative that seniors and their loved ones educate themselves about their planning options and resources to better age with dignity and peace of mind."

Attorney Curley is one of just 23 Certified Elder Law Attorneys in the Commonwealth. Achieving this distinction is rare because it requires years of focused Estate Planning and Elder Law practice, peer references from Elder Law experts, dozens of hours of continuing education, and passing a rigorous full-day bar-style exam covering 12 Elder Law categories, as well as vigorous re-certifications every five years.

Attendees must RSVP to Windrose at Woburn at 781.935.3333.

"Protect Yourself and Your Assets"

If you have a health crisis, are you prepared? Without careful estate planning, your loved ones may be forced into a stressful and costly Conservatorship and Guardianship Court process to gain authority to make legal, financial and medical decisions for you. Upon your death, did you realize Probate can take more than one year and impose its own share of stress and costs on your loved ones?

Save your loved ones these unnecessary costs, stresses, and delays by doing proper Estate Planning today. It is never too late to plan to control your own future! Seniors and their families owe it to themselves to learn their lawful options so they can make an informed decision on how best to protect themselves and their assets.

Certified Elder Law Attorney Patrick Curley of Curley Law Firm LLP in Wakefield will teach attendees (1) how most Durable Power of Attorney documents are inadequate and what authority yours must contain to be adequate, (2) the difference between Irrevocable and Revocable Trusts and why you may want to consider one or both, and (3) why failing to take advantage of lawful planning strategies today can leave you and your assets exposed in the future, and what action you should take to protect yourself.

Attorney Curley is one of just 24 Certified Elder Law Attorneys in the Commonwealth. Achieving this distinction is rare because it requires years of focused Estate Planning and Elder Law practice, peer references from Elder Law experts, dozens of hours of continuing legal education, and passing a rigorous full-day bar-style exam covering 12 Elder Law categories, as well as re-certifications every five years.
