On Thursday, May 25, 2023, Medford’s Council on Aging will offer a free asset protection presentation by Certified Elder Law Attorneys Patrick Curley and Lucy Budman of Curley Law Firm LLP. Titled “Estate Plan Survival Kit – What you need to protect your family, your assets, and your independence as you age,” the presentation will take place at the Medford Senior Center (101 Riverside Ave., Medford, Mass.) at 1:00 p.m. and is open to the public. The presentation is offered in connection with the 2023 Elder Law Education Program, which is sponsored by the Massachusetts Bar Association (MBA) with support from the Massachusetts Chapter of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (MassNAELA).
The MBA publication “2023 Elder Law Education Guide” is available to all members of the public to read or download for free online at www.massbar.org/elderlaw. At the invitation of the MBA and MassNAELA, Attorney Curley has served as a contributing author of this publication for many years.
Attorneys Curley and Budman will share with attendees the strategies they can use to better protect themselves and their family, their home and savings and their ongoing independence. The presentation will address (1) steps to take to avoid Guardianship, Conservatorship and Probate; (2) the pros and cons of Revocable and Irrevocable Trusts; and (3) peace of mind planning to be prepared for ‘what if’ scenarios, including nursing home care.
“Elder law education is part of my mission to help seniors in Medford and the surrounding North Shore communities better protect their independence and assets for the future,” said Attorney Curley. “It is impossible to plan ahead if one never learns the lawful planning options available. This presentation is designed so that every attendee leaves equipped with the information they need to make informed decisions for their future.”
Attorneys Curley and Budman are among just two dozen Certified Elder Law Attorneys in the Commonwealth. Curley Law Firm LLP, which is based in Wakefield but also offers online consultations, focuses exclusively on Estate Planning and Elder Law.
