LOS ANGELES, July 15 /PRNewswire/ -- WealthCounsel®, a nationwide organization of more than 2,000 estate planning attorneys
"We were delighted by the strong demand for relevant and timely information from experts regarding the unique aspects of planning for physician clients," said Carl R. Waldman, Esq. of Westlake Village, CA. "We believe that the fact that many physicians have sought asset protection advice may have ignited interest in this topic, especially given skyrocketing medical malpractice claims in many states," stated Waldman. Waldman is a founder and principal of WealthCounsel, LLC and served as the moderator for the well-attended webcast.
Waldman noted that heightened interest in this topic may also be related to the recent enactment of President Obama's Health Care Reform package which could be driving physicians to protect existing assets while bracing for possible reductions in compensation.
The one-hour webcast entitled "How to Attract Physician Clients and What To Do When You Get Them" was designed as a preview for a more lengthy legal technical workshop to be held in Chicago during the Planning for the Generations Symposium. The symposium, which takes place Aug. 11-13, 2010, is expected to attract hundreds of estate planning and elder law practitioners.
