Th, February 19: Planning for Parents As our parents grow older, often their children become their support system.  Learn the legal protections to put in place to help your parents age gracefully and avoid costly mistakes in planning. The class will also address emergency planning, community resources and medicaid.

F, March 13: Planning for PI Settlement Often a personal injury case proceeds to settlement with no thought of how the monetary distribution will effect a beneficiary who is receiving state assistance.  Receipt of a large sum of money will often disqualify an individual from important benefits such as health care, housing, food stamps and SSI.  Learn how a settlement can be set aside in a special needs trust preserving it as a resource for the individual while maintaining their eligibility.  Class is appropriate for individuals and professionals.
