“Hot Topics in Elder Law” subject of October Seniors Count workshop
NASHUA – Legal issues can be complicated at any age, but growing older presents its own set of challenges. As we plan for our lives as retirees and beyond, knowing – and understanding – what needs to be done from a legal perspective is critical as we look towards the future.
The October Seniors Count-Nashua workshop will give area seniors the opportunity to get answers to questions they have about issues related to Elder Law.
The free workshop will be held on Monday, October 19, 2015 beginning at 1:00pm.
David R. Craig, principal of David R. Craig & Associates, is workshop presenter. Craig has been formally board certified in Elder Law by the National Elder Law Foundation since 2005 (recertified in 2010, 2015). Craig is a member of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys, the NH Estate Planning Council, and a founding member and past President of the NH Chapter of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys.
