1:30 pm-2:30 pm
Newton Senior Center, 345 Walnut St., Newtonville

Hickson for a presentation where she will discuss long-term care/Medicaid planning, including irrevocable trusts, life estate deeds, outright transfers, long-term care insurance, annuities, pooled trusts, and the Medicaid regulations. Stay afterward for a question & answer session.   Attorney Hickson has been practicing law since 2009, and she specializes in elder law and estate planning.
