Lawyer Monthly - June 2022

Welcome to the June 2022 Edition of Lawyer Monthly! For our June issue, we are taking a close look at an area of law not often featured in this magazine: elder law. Taking point on the sector is Valerie Peterson, who in an exclusive interview shares the insights she has gained from years of experience in elder law and her efforts to educate new elder law attorneys. How could you gain from adding elder law to your practice, and how can you go about doing it? You can read more of her fascinating story on page 12. Continuing our sector focus for the month, Matthew Moore analyses the modern elder law landscape more broadly in another of our cover stories on page 22, touching upon Medicaid and the need for effective financial planning for elders. Samantha McCarthy’s page 18 article expands yet further, offering an in-depth look at what well-established Medicaid Asset Protection Trusts can bring to estate planning. We also feature a spotlight on Medicaid itself and the changes set to impact it this year; our coverage can be found on page 32. Our other features this month cover a wide swathe of the legal industry. From Edward Estrada’s eye-opening expose on Texas’s card skimmer epidemic (page 44) to Elnaz Masoom’s guide to preparing for tax audits (page 80), the June edition is packed with almost two dozen stories of interest in both criminal and civil law. As ever, this latest issue also sports the latest legal news and lawyer moves, along with our monthly M&A round-up and a series of eye-opening expert witness profiles. We hope that you enjoy this edition. Approx. 302,000 net digital distribution.
