Speakers: John C. Brydon, Esq. and Darlene M. Vlahos, Esq.

As an attorney - regardless of your practice area - it's likely that you've had clients say to you, "I want my kids to have my house." Parents often mistakenly believe that transferring ownership of their home to their child will save taxes or avoid a lien for the cost of in-home or nursing home care. Reality, however, may be very different. Such a transfer is typically fraught with problems.

By attending this seminar you will learn both sides of the pitfalls that may exist, so you can advise your clients and enable them to make an educated and informed decision.

(Note: This seminar will NOT cover how to avoid a Medicaid lien.)
