Region – At its annual meeting Dec. 11, the Massachusetts Chapter of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (MassNAELA) honored several individuals for their advocacy of elder services and their commitment to raising awareness of legal issues affecting seniors. Massachusetts State Senator James B. “Jamie” Eldridge (D-Acton) was named Legislator of the Year for his support and efforts for passage of legislation that protects seniors.
The evening also featured a panel of speakers who provided updates on developments in key areas of elder law and estate planning.
