January 19, You're Invited: Senior Law Day with Robert M. Freedman

If you're like most seniors, you probably have more legal questions than funds to pay for answers. Now, the Carter Burden/Roosevelt Island Senior Center says free help is on the way.

Carter Burden/Roosevelt Island Senior Center Outreach Director Hallie Shapiro announced Senior Law day at the Center for January 19th, starting at 10:00.

The event is highlighted by a workshop with Robert Freedman, a partner with Schiff Hardin who specializes in Senior Law and Special Needs Planning, at 1:00. Prior to that, a host of service providers and elected officials will be on hand at the Center, 546 Main Street, to let attendees know about how they can ease the challenges of aging. (Click the flyer attached below for more information.)

Senior Law Day is free and open to the public, including non-seniors.

Refreshments will be served, and sponsor Independence Care System will provide gift bags. 

Attorney Freedman's workshop will focus on...

  • 5 Essential Legal Documents
  • Financial Planning + Tax Issues/Scams
  • Healthcare Costs (including Medicare/Medicaid)

Shapiro, in kicking off a contemplated series of senior fairs expected to include health and wellness among others, follows the example of her colleague Alexandra Jurenko who hosted the initial, successful Senior Law Day at Carter Burden's Caregiver Resource Program at their Leonard Covello Senior Program in East Harlem.

All events connected with Senior Law Day are free. Coordinator Shapiro asks that, if you plan to attend or have any questions that you kindly contact her by email at shapiroh@carterburdencenter.org or by telephone: 212-980-1888
