San Francisco, CA (Law Firm Newswire) December 16, 2019 – Attorney Mark Gilfix of Gilfix & La Poll Associates LLP was honored to be a speaker at the 2019 Bay Area Adult Autism/DD Conference at Stanford University on Saturday, November 16.
Gilfix’s presentation, Integrated, multi-generational planning: How to provide for a vibrant legal and financial future for your loved one with autism highlighted strategies to integrate legal, financial and long-term care issues into an optimized special needs plan.
“There is so much ignorance and uncertainty out there. Parents of children with autism feel overwhelmed. Integrating legal and financial planning can be a big challenge, so I love to share strategies and approaches that can help families. It’s a privilege to serve this community, and I was honored to speak to the people who fight so hard – every day – to improve the lives of those with autism,” said Gilfix.
The conference, in its sixth year, was sponsored by the Autism Society San Francisco Bay Area (SFASA), which is a grassroots nonprofit organization that strives to improve the lives of those affected by autism in all six major Bay Area counties and the Stanford Autism Center at Packard Children’s Hospital. It brought together many community and business leaders, and over 450 attendees. It focused on addressing the many needs and interests of parents, caregivers and professionals serving children and individuals with autism. Other topics included housing, public benefits, legal and financial planning, mental health, education, and more.
