I have spent the last three days in Newport Beach at a NAELA (National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys) summit meeting. While the program was set up as classes hosted by a speaker/moderator, the summit has been interactive. Questions have been posed In the sessions and the audience responds with electronic devices to give an immediate poll of the opinions of the attendees, at which point members of the audience can choose to stand up and be heard on their ideas and views.
It has been interesting to see how the laws of the different states vary greatly on the issues and how other attorneys have overcome problems that we are also facing in California. I will be coming home with ideas and tips to improve our documents and help our clients solve practical problems from special needs trust administration, retirement benefits quandaries, and powers of attorney.
