Webinar Recorded: March 2, 2016
Presented by Valerie Peterson, JD, ElderCounsel
Duration: 3 hours
What is elder law?
Elder law is defined by the clients you serve or want to serve. It can be as broad or as narrow as you would like it to be, but let’s face it – older clients have very different needs than younger clients. And there are a lot of them who need your help. We will spend time discussing various definitions and helping you decide how you would like it defined for your practice.
What will it take me to learn it?
Without a clearly defined plan, it can seem like more work than you want to take on! The first step is to decide what area of elder law you want to tackle.
How can I profit in this area?
We will spend time identifying appropriate clients and referral sources, discussing how to price different types of cases, and sharing successful marketing strategies.
What changes do I have to make in my office, staff, and/or procedures?
In the short term, there may be very few, if any changes to be made. This session will focus on a few practice models that have been successful for other transitioning attorneys.
Where will I find the time to learn this area?
We all have limited hours in the day and competing demands on that time both personally and professionally. Live or online, it’s your choice; this session will cover tips from attorneys that have done it.
