    Collapse Representing a Disabled Parent in Family Court: Law and Strategies

    Disabled parents are the only distinct community of parents who must struggle to retain custody of their children solely due to their distinction of being disabled. In all too many cases, the mere existence of a disability is used against the parent without regard to how that individual is actually capable of parenting safely and successfully. Disabled parents have their children removed in welfare cases at a higher rate than non-disabled parents and generally have a more difficult time getting the children returned to them. This program will examine the laws in place which can be used to protect disabled parents and the strategies to address the biases which are present in the courtroom. Our panel includes an expert on disability rights, a former Family Court practitioner with 18 years experience, and a parent whose disability was used against him in child welfare proceedings.

    Collapse The Coronovirus Outbreak is a  Referendum on Virtual Practice How Quickly Can Your Law Firm Get Up to Speed?

    The impact of the coronavirus pandemic has already significantly changed the way law firms practice; and, those changes will be long lasting and far reaching, even as the outbreak is eventually controlled, and we all return to normal life.

    If you’re now being forced to operate a virtual law practice, when your law firm had previously existed as a traditional business, you’re likely scrambling to get up to speed as quarantines take place across the world, and populations affirmatively engage in social distancing.  Without

    another option, you’re left to adopt a virtual law practice model, or risk the continuity of your business.

    In this webinar, we’ll show you how to get ramped up to a virtual law firm business model (both from a marketing, as well as a technology  

    perspective) as quickly as possible, with discrete tasks you can engage as soon as this week.  It’s not as hard as you think; but, you have to start somewhere -- start here.

    Collapse Bostock, Fulton & Beyond: The Future of LGBTQ+ Rights Under Federal Law

    The last four years have brought systematic roll-backs of hard-won federal protections for LGBTQ+ people across the country. So far, 2020 -- a year of clarity in the now rather than retrospectively -- has been a roller coaster ride in myriad ways, including the realm of LGBTQ+ federal rights. In a pleasantly surprising Bostock decision this summer, the US Supreme Court declared LGBTQ+ employees are protected under Title VII. But now SCOTUS is considering Fulton v. Philadelphia, a case that weighs religious freedoms against the right of LGBTQ+ people to foster children -- all with the Court's newly minted conservative majority. In this virtual CLE program, expert legal practitioners involved in these cases will explore where LGBTQ+ federal rights stand today and what may be in store for us with Fulton and the new makeup of the US Supreme Court.

    Collapse From NY to FL: What you Need to Know for Residence Determination

    Changing your residence from a high-tax state (think NY, NJ & CA) to a low, or no-tax state (think FL), can dramatically reduce the amount of state taxes you have to pay.

If you continue to maintain any connection to the former residence (think snowbirds), the high-tax state may contest that you truly changed your residence. In this presentation, you will learn how New York determines a taxpayer's residency and how to make New York respect your residency change.

    Highlights:

    * Concrete steps necessary to change your permanent residence to Florida.

    * Tips for dealing with New York's statutory residency rules.

    * How do you count a "day" for purposes of NY's 183 day rule?
