Mark Shalloway, president of West Palm Beach elder law firm Shalloway & Shalloway, attended the 2019 Stetson National Conference on Special Needs Planning and Special Needs Trusts. The three day conference was jam-packed with renowned speakers who covered the major issues involving the creation, administration, and monitoring of special needs trusts, as well as special needs planning as a whole. The events included Veterans Benefits Intensive, Pooled Trusts Intensive, an expert panel and more.
Professionals from across the United States who deal within the field of special needs planning and trusts traveled to St. Petersburg, Florida to partake in this important and informative event. Among the people in attendance were the past and present presidents of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA), Mark Shalloway being one of them. The event was an important one for these men and women to attend, as special needs planning and trusts often go hand in hand with elder law.
“A major part of my mission as an elder and special needs care attorney is educating the public on their options on everything from health insurance to tax liabilities,” Shalloway says. “My firm is deeply committed to philanthropy within our community and to helping the families of military personnel plan for their lives once their careers reach a culmination.”
Whenever these events on the education of his area of practice arise, Mark Shalloway is always eager to attend. To Shalloway, education is a crucial aspect of not only preparing for one’s future, but assisting loved ones who perhaps did not plan well beforehand. He attends a number of elder law events a year, some as a spectator, and some as a speaker—like the annual free seminars he gives for the Judge Advocate General (JAG) Corps of Fort Stewart in Georgia. There, he teaches the brave men and women about elder law, special needs, and estate planning, which are topics that can very much help our active-duty servicepeople long after Shalloway leaves.
