Protect Your Family

One of the biggest fears that many people have today is the fear of having their life savings wiped out if they need long-term care. What a shame to see someone’s life savings of 30, 40, or 50 years wiped out in a matter of months. Whether you or a family member is in a crisis or not, it is important that you understand what you can do to protect your hard-earned assets!

FREE informational workshops will be hosted by Elder Law Attorney, Dennis J. Toman, for families in and around the Greensboro metropolitan area.

This will be in a relaxed setting in our Learning Center, and will last about 1-1/2 hours. Light refreshments are served.

Attendance at these meetings is FREE but seating is limited. Please use this site to reserve your spot and we’ll look forward to seeing you soon!
