Renaissance Cleveland Hotel Grand Ballroom

Cleveland State University’s Cleveland-Marshall College of Law will recognize two of its outstanding alumni at the Cleveland-Marshall Law Alumni Association’s Annual Recognition Luncheon, to take place at the Renaissance Cleveland Hotel Grand Ballroom Thursday, May 22, 2014 at 11:30 a.m. The CMLAA will recognize The Honorable Terrence O'Donnell of the Ohio Supreme Court ’71 and Terry H. Gilbert ’73 as its Alumni of the Year.

Justice O'Donnell joined the Supreme Court of Ohio in 2003, and is serving his second full six-year term on the court through 2018. His legal career began as a law clerk on the Ohio Supreme Court upon graduation from law school and continued with the firm of Marshman, Snyder & Corrigan in Cleveland, before he began his judicial career with the Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court, where he served for 14 years until his election to the Eighth District Court of Appeals. Justice O'Donnell has served as chairman of the Ohio Legal Rights Service Commission, which oversees the protection and advocacy of the developmentally disabled and mentally ill statewide, and is credited with initiating Ohio’s Lawyer to Lawyer Mentoring Program, which has gained national recognition.

Gilbert, of the firm Friedman & Gilbert, has been in private law practice for over 40 years, specializing in criminal defense and civil rights litigation. Throughout the years, Gilbert has handled a variety of government misconduct cases involving police abuse, violations of free speech, prisoners’ rights and victims of various forms of discrimination. He has appeared frequently as a legal expert on national and local media including The Today Show, CNN, 60 Minutes and Dateline.

Tickets and sponsorship opportunities for the annual luncheon are now available. For information about sponsorship opportunities, contact Megan A.

CMLAA-CLE seminar - Elder Law Care

CLE credit: 
3 hours pending
Weight:

All Saturday morning CLE's are from 9:00 am - 12:15 pm. Registration begins at 8:30am.

March 22 - Elder Care Law

Many myths abound regarding Medicaid and Veterans benefits eligibility. This CLE will detail the complex eligibility criteria for Medicaid for elderly clients, both in and out of nursing homes. The CLE will detail strategies commonly used by elder law attorneys to protect assets legally. The CLE will also detail the Veterans Benefits available to elders facing chronic care, and their intersection with the Medicaid system. Even if you are not an elder law attorney, knowing what pitfalls to avoid in advising an increasingly aging population will give the attorney valuable information.

The program will further delve into the subject of elder care with the issue of elder abuse. The CLE will explain what constitutes elder abuse, neglect (including self-neglect) and financial exploitation, how to recognize the “red flags” of elder abuse, the duty to report, and what measures Adult Protective Services can take under APS law and/or guardianship law, to reduce the risk to vulnerable older adults.

As our families and clients age and begin to face nursing home stays and chronic disease management, knowing the way the long term care system works is critical. When a loved one or client goes into a nursing home, they do not always understand their rights under federal and state law within that system.

Speakers: Rachel A. Kabb-Effron, Esq. and Kelli Kay Perk, Esq.
