Administrative Law Section
The Section met in February and discussed its presentation during the Annual Meeting scheduled for May 5, 2017, at the Gaithersburg Hilton.
The title of the presentation is Decoding Social Security Disability: Make Disability Benefits Work for your Client
The presenters will be attorneys Elliott Andalman and Peter Casciano of Andalman & Flynn, P.C.
The presentation will focus on the basic principles of disability benefits law, including substantive rules, procedural issues and strategy concerns.
The speakers will also cover common disability benefits issues that arise in other areas of law including family, trusts and estates, personal injury, and even criminal. Finally, they will also discuss other areas of disability benefits beyond Social Security Disability, including Long Term Disability (ERISA), Maryland State Disability and Federal Disability Retirement.
Please plan to attend!
In addition, the Section agreed to participate in the New Practitioners Section Fair/Open House. The event will be held in the Executive Office Building Cafeteria on March 21, 2017. The goal of the event is to give some of the bar association’s newest attorneys and law students detailed information about the many sections of the Bar Association and what each section offers throughout the year. There will be entertainment, food, and drinks. Our section will host a table between 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Please plan to attend!
Our next meeting is Wednesday, March 1, 2017, at 5:30PM. The meeting will be held in the conference room of the bar association building, 27 West Jefferson Street, Rockville, Maryland unless otherwise noted by signage.
