This one hour webcast is meant as a foundation course for the non-elder law attorney, attorneys new to the elder law practice area interested in learning more about this important legal proceeding, or any attorney who needs a refresher.
This presentation, led by Veronica Escobar, will provide the viewer with an Article 81 Proceeding roadmap that will define incapacity, instruct on the how to's of a Guardianship petition, the evidentiary standard at hearing, as well as the hearing itself. The presenter will also touch upon post-guardianship hearing issues.
Native New Yorker Veronica Escobar has been practicing law in her home state for very close to sixteen years. For the past ten and a half years, she has been the Principal and Founder of The Law Offices of Veronica Escobar, a practice focusing exclusively in the areas of Elder Law, Special Needs Planning, and Trusts and Estates. She has two offices, one in her home borough of Queens and the other on the island of Manhattan.
What she likes most about her practice is being able to connect to individuals and families during what can be difficult life moments and creating solutions through careful and considered planning. As she often says, “ I like leaving my clients in a better place than when I encountered them.” Naturally, she extends this into her experience as a writer and lecturer to lawyers and the public on issues in elder and special needs law and estate planning.
Veronica is admitted to practice in the state of New York. She is also admitted to practice before the U.S. District Courts for the Eastern and Southern Districts of New York and the United States Supreme Court. She graduated summa cum laude from Fordham College at Rose Hill, Fordham University, where was also elected to Phi Beta Kappa, with a degree in American Studies and a minor in Latin American/Latino Studies. Veronica also received her law degree from Fordham, where she was a Notes and Articles Editor of the Fordham International Law Journal. She is a member of NYSBA and the New York City Bar. She is also chair of the Solo and Small Firm Affinity Group and the AAC Solo and Small Firm Subcommittee at her alma mater, Fordham Law.
