Session Description: Senior citizens often face an array of legal issues involving end-of-life decisions such as advance planning for medical care and the disposition of their estates.  Unfortunately, they also often lack the financial resources to retain private counsel and must rely on the assistance of volunteer lawyers.

Presenters include David Hominik, Legal Services Developer, Virginia Department for Aging and Rehabilitative Services; Yahne Miorini, LL.M, Miorini Law PLLC, President –Elect of Virginia Chapter of the Academy of Elder Law Attorneys; and Kathy Pryor, Staff Attorney, Virginia Poverty Law Center.
