Lawrence Friedman was honored at the New Jersey Institute for Continuing Legal Education’s (NJICLE) Excellence in CLE Awards Ceremony on June 17, 2019.
Larry was awarded NJICLE’s Distinguished Service Award, in recognition of his 25+ years giving continuing legal education program to other attorneys in the areas of elder law, special needs, disability, Medicaid, wills, trusts and estate planning, guardianship, and similar topics.
Larry was honored to receive this award, and is proud of his work educating both attorneys and the public and seeking to “raise the bar” of elder law practice in New Jersey. A few days after the award ceremony, Larry moderated the long-running Sophisticated Elder Law seminar. Larry started this annual program, New Jersey’s first elder law seminar, twenty-five years ago, and this was the twenty-fifth program. Larry has spoken at it and moderated it every one of those twenty-five years. At this year’s program, he spoke about Medicare options, ethics in elder law practice, and Medicaid and personal injury settlements.
Larry also for many years moderated Senior Citizens Law Day, a program with the New Jersey Bar Foundation that provides legal information that’s of interest to seniors to the public. Mark Friedman (me) has since taken over moderating the program. We held this year’s program on June 4, and it was a great success – we had over 100 people in attendance. We had representatives from the New Jersey Attorney General’s office speaking about elder abuse and scams and fraud that target seniors, and Mark Friedman (that’s me!) spoke about basic estate planning, long term care and Medicaid asset protection planning.
At FriedmanLaw, Larry Friedman and Mark Friedman are proud of the work we do for our clients, and the many educational programs we speak at both for the public and for other attorneys. Some of these programs are listed on our Events page (although I’ll confess we don’t always do the best job keeping the page up to date). We hope to see you at one of our future events, and if you have any questions about elder law, special needs and disability, will, trusts and estates, or any other legal topics, please feel free to call or email us.
