The 24th Annual Elder & Special Needs Law Symposium offers insight from respected elder-and special-needs-law practitioners and aging-service professionals from North Carolina and across the country.

  • Discover ways to advise clients on remaining in their homes and aging in place longer
  • Protect clients from the growing sophistication of scammers and those who take advantage of vulnerable adults
