Robert F. Brogan Receives NJSBA Legislative Recognition Award

NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ – Robert F. Brogan, a solo law practitioner and resident of Point Pleasant was honored with the New Jersey State Bar Association’s (NJSBA) Legislative Recognition Award in September for his work on the NJSBA-drafted guardianship bill, S-2017/A-3638 (Singer/Weinberg.) The bill promotes, among other things, limited guardianship in such proceedings and autonomy for the mentally incapacitated.

In addition to drafting the bill, Brogan and others met with staff of the Administrative Office of the Courts to work on amendments to the bill, and met with the AARP and other groups to gain support for the bill.

The annual Legislative Recognition Award is given to acknowledge noteworthy legislative service of NJSBA members.

A certified elder law attorney, Brogan is an active member and lecturer with the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys, Inc., the Elder Law Sections of the NJSBA and Ocean County Bar Association (OCBA), the NJSBA Real Property, Probate and Trust Law Section, and the Probate/Chancery Committee of the OCBA. He is a former legislative coordinator for the NJSBA Elder Law Section.

Brogan concentrates his practice in elder law, wills and trusts, Medicaid planning, estate and trust administration and probate litigation. He lectures regularly to senior groups and communities regarding estate planning, Medicaid planning, and the legal impact of healthcare issues on seniors and their family members.

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.
