As the third of the firm’s “five for five” community events celebrating the firm’s 50th anniversary, Lisa M. McCormack, Esq. spoke on surrogate decision making on June 25, 2014 at the Lenox Library.  The title of the presentation was “What to do when your loved ones can no longer make health and other decisions for themselves.”  Lisa, an expert and frequent lecturer in the field, outlined the tools available in Massachusetts to plan for a time when you are no longer able to make decisions for yourself, as well as what to do in the event a loved one did not make those plans, and relatives and friends are forced to turn to a court for help.  The presentation, which was held from 5:30-7:00 p.m., featured a question and answer session followed by light refreshments.
