I love giving continuing legal education to other attorneys as it makes me a better attorney. I have worked with the National Business Institute for years and every time it has allowed me to learn more about a particular estate planning or elder law subject. Over the years, I have spent hours and hours learning more and writing outlines about the following subjects:
- the history and effectiveness of living wills
- durable powers of attorney
- estate taxes
- income taxes as a part of estate planning
- long-term care insurance planning
- special needs trusts and when to use them
- elder placement and concerns
- Medicaid and asset protection planning
- and more . . .
Learning more, writing about and then presenting on these issues is always great fun, although usually a great amount of work. But my additional learning and willingness to put more time in at night and on the weekends makes me a better attorney, which makes me a better resourse to my clients. How many other attorneys say that they have spent 60+ hours studying living wills, the effectiveness of living wills and how to implement end-of-life counseling into their practice? The reality is that I do not know any other attorneys who have taken the time to do this.
This leads me up to my speaking engagement coming up for NBI on Tuesday, December 13th. Here I will be presenting on:
DOCUMENTING LONG-TERM CARE, INCAPACITY AND END-OF-LIFE DECISIONS
- Medicaid Planning Overview
- Long-Term Care Options and Planning in a Nutshell
- Special Needs Trusts
- Advance Medical Directives
- Powers of Attorney
- DNR Orders and Organ Donation Considerations
Best of all, I believe that my father, Dennis R. DeLoach, Jr., will be attending this seminar, so I would love to have him in the audience, and hope that he could learn a little bit from his son.
