Long-Term Care Seminar Scheduled at Law Center

NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ— Attorney Harley Gordon, a nationally recognized authority on long-term care issues, will be the guest lecturer at a seminar at the New Jersey Law Center in New Brunswick on April 12. The program, cosponsored by the NIA Group, runs from 9 to 11 a.m., and is preceded by a continental breakfast beginning at 8:30 a.m. Admission is free for New Jersey State Bar Association members and $25 for non-members.

Gordon has been voted one of the 100 most influential people in long-term care by the trade publication McKnight’s Long-Term Care News. His book How to Protect Life Savings From Catastrophic Illness, with over 150,000 copies in print, has helped consumers understand the devastating consequences of long-term care.

Gordon’s views have been featured in the PBS Frontline documentary “Who Pays for Mom and Dad,” the Wall Street Journal, the CBS Evening News and a number of national and trade publications. He has lectured extensively before consumer and long-term care trade organizations on the importance of planning for disability. He is currently working on a consulting basis with the Massachusetts Division of Medical Assistance to reform Medicaid eligibility.

To register for the program, contact Bill Diana at The NIA Group at 732-941-3119 or bdiana@niagroup.com by April 5.

The New Jersey State Bar Association, incorporated in 1899, is dedicated to the continuing education of lawyers and the public, to reforming and improving the legal system and to aiding in the administration of justice.
