Lamson & Cutner has scheduled Spring 2020 Continuing Education Courses

These courses will provide 2.0 CEU credits to Licensed Social Workers, Licensed Mental Health Counselors, and Certified Case Managers, and will be held in the firm’s New York City office.

Lamson & Cutner’s interesting and useful CE Courses explain what you need to know about Estate Planning, Elder Law and Disability Planning.  Professionals who deal with elderly or disabled clients, in particular, can benefit from this valuable, concrete information.  Numerous attendees have also found the courses useful for their own personal family situations.

The material is presented in a way that is clear and easy to understand.  Partner David Cutner feels that educating professionals about the ways that they can help their clients to protect themselves is an important part of the firm’s outreach.

Learn about these laws and opportunities from the first law firm authorized by the NY State Department of Education to grant CE credits to Social Workers for Elder Law courses.  Our firm is authorized to grant continuing education credit to Licensed Mental Health Practitioners and Certified Case Managers as well.
