Elder Law Attorneys Helping Seniors
Gainesville Elder Law Attorneys Give Back To Their Community
At the Miller Elder Law Firm, our Gainesville Elder Law Attorneys are proud to help their community. When not at their practice, our attorneys participate in many different activities — they are members of organizations such as the Bennet Inns of Court and organizations dedicated to Medicaid law reform.
Our attorneys are knowledgeable, caring, and experienced. If you or a loved one is in need of assistance with any issues regarding elder law; such as estate planning or qualifying for Medicaid, our attorneys can help. Call the Miller Elder Law Firm today.
“So one of the things that I do outside of just the practice of law is I’m
extremely involved locally with the Bennett Inns of Court, which is a
cooperative learning organization which works with the University of
Florida. So students and lawyers work together and cooperate on issues that
involve innovation and technology. So it’s geared towards being innovative
and technical aspects of the practice of law.
We also work hand-in-hand with the community, with Innovation Gainesville
and GACAR, which are organizations in Gainesville that are focused
on the advancement of technology and innovation.
I also am a member of a women’s investment group. I like to stay active in
that organization. Some of the other things that I do from a political
perspective are that I’m on what’s called the task force, which is an
organization that works between the Association of Florida Elder Law
Attorneys and the Elder Law Section of the Florida Bar. I’m the Treasurer
of the Association of Florida Elder Law Attorneys, and what we do with that
task force is we review legislation that comes down through the state of
Florida legislature and we take action. So we are able to actually lobby
certain bills that are good for seniors and good for those with special
needs. We also take positions on those matters. So that is something I
really take pride in. I have testified at the legislature on issues that
affect seniors, written position papers, white papers, taken a very active
role in trying to keep our seniors protected.
I’m actually in the application period of being appointed to what’s called
the Medicaid Reform Working Group, where I will be representing the
attorney’s perspective on how to implement some of the new Medicaid reform
legislation that is probably going to be coming into effect very shortly.”
