Featured Committee Member
Paul D. Shapiro, CELA

Paul is a member of the NAELA State Advocacy Committee.

"I get to hear from practitioners in individual states. This experience has increased my awareness in the national scope of what elder law attorneys do, recognizing names of people in different areas, and understanding the bird’s eye view of community. Each state has its own way of doing things, but they’re all connected, and committee involvement showed me that."
