West Broward, FL- the Dade County Bar Association sought to invite the AV-rated Alice Reiter Feld to address The Probate and Guardianship Committee on November 14, 2010 in Miami. Ms. Feld presented for 30 or so minutes on the subject of the “10 Critical Stumbling Blocks You Need to Know Right Now About Elder Law to Avoid Mistakes and Liability,” following a presentation on long term care by New York Life.
Alice Reiter Feld, Esq., CELA PA is a nationally-known elder law expert and a much sought-after speaker. She has addressed students of law, elder care facility administrators and her constituency of elder law attorneys around the country. She is also an active lecturer at NOVA Southeastern School of Law, Broward County Estate Planning Council and Hospice by the Sea; and lecturer-at-large to the South Florida senior community and their care-givers.
A rebuttal speaker, Alice took the time to be frank in addressing how she navigates the inevitable potholes in practicing under the ‘The Elder Law Umbrella’, that includes asset protection and long term care planning, estate planning (wills, trusts and probates), Medicaid and Veteran’s benefits, not to mention a great deal of hand-holding.
Recounting the nightmares she has encountered over the 27 years she is in private practice, Alice expounds on how important it is for prospective clients to recognize the value of engaging a sage elder law attorney to determine, plan and execute their elder care strategies; and equally important for attorneys to cover their proverbial “assets”. It’s no wonder she resounds with her mantra, Out of Time, Out of Money, Out of Options. “No kidding, it’s important for the legal community to understand as well the pitfalls of poor planning and poor legal counsel”, Alice Reiter Feld says.
