Attorneys to Present at Regional Estate-planning Conference June 11
SPRINGFIELD — Local law firm Shatz, Schwartz and Fentin, P.C. announced that shareholder Michele Feinstein will co-chair a full-day Massachusetts Continuing Legal Education (MCLE) symposium, “Estate Planning: Cutting-edge Issues in Western Massachusetts,” on Thursday, June 11 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Sheraton Springfield, One Monarch Place.
The full-day, regional conference will be delivered by a diverse panel of distinguished estate planners — including Feinstein — who will share their insights to train estate-planning professionals in the latest issues affecting their practice. Topics will include issues unique to Western Mass., from the diverse business populations (artists, farmers, and manufacturers) to case and legislative updates, income-tax planning, litigation considerations, and practice-management tips.
Feinstein concentrates her practice in the areas of estate planning and administration, elder law, probate litigation, health law, corporate and business planning, including all aspects of planning for the succession of business interests, representation of closely held businesses and their owners, and representation of physicians in their individual and group practices. She has received many professional recognitions, including repeated selection to the Super Lawyers of Massachusetts, Best Lawyers in America, and Top Women Attorneys in New England. Additionally, she was named among the Top Women of Law by Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly in 2014, the only attorney in the Western Mass. region to be so honored.
MCLE is the Massachusetts legal community’s premier provider of hands-on educational programs and reference materials. Its particular focus is applied law — practical, concrete training for attorneys in the essential elements of professional practice.
