“Massachusetts Bar Assoc. spotlights Member Patrick Curley, Esq.”, February 10, 2021
Wakefield, MA – The Massachusetts Bar Association (MBA) recently recognized local Certified Elder Law Attorney Patrick Curley in its Pro Bono Month Spotlight.
The annual Spotlight distinction is for attorneys who give back to their communities by volunteering in MBA-affiliated public and community service programs. The MBA’s interview with Patrick was published it its MBA eJournal.
Since 2016, Patrick has served as a contributing author of the MassHealth (Medicaid) Chapter of the MBA’s annual Elder Law Education Guide. The 2020 Guide is free and available to download through the MBA’s website at https://www.massbar.org/public/elder-law-education.
On behalf of the MBA’s Elder Law Education outreach program, Patrick volunteers to speak to seniors and their family members each year at Councils on Aging and Senior Centers across eastern Massachusetts. Patrick explained that “education is a core value in my law practice. This area of law is so complex that most people – even attorneys – do not understand their options. I enjoy the opportunity to freely share the facts so families can protect themselves, their loved ones, their independence, and their home and savings. I work very hard to help explain complex legal issues in a way that everyone in the room can understand.”
Locally, Patrick serves as the Den Leader of his son’s Webelos Den with Pack 48 Lynnfield. In addition, he is a long-time volunteer with the effort to convert the abandoned rail bed connecting Wakefield/Lynnfield into a Rail Trail.
Patrick is the Managing Partner at Curley Law Firm LLP in Wakefield and focuses his practice on Estate Planning, Elder Law, and MassHealth Planning. More information about Patrick and his firm can be found at CurleyLawFirm.com.
