Frances M. Pantaleo Speaking at Several Professional Events

October 2017

Bleakley Platt partner Frances M. Pantaleo’s service to the legal profession and the community is evidenced by her busy schedule this fall.

Ms. Pantaleo is dinner chair for the Pace Women’s Justice Center’s “Making a Difference Benefit Dinner,” which will be held on October 19th at Doral Arrowwood, Rye Brook, NY and will honor Gayle S. Lob, CFP of New Rochelle and Chief of Police David M. Ryan, Pound Ridge. Pace Women’s Justice Center is a self-funded nonprofit legal center located at Elisabeth Haub School of Law. Each year, PWJC provides free legal services to nearly 3,000 victims and survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, and elder abuse, as well as conducts or participates in over 140 training and outreach events.

On November 14, Ms. Pantaleo will give a presentation entitled “Estate Planning for Individuals with Special Needs,” at a New York State Bar Association Continuing Education program, taking place at the Westchester Marriott. Her program is designed for attorneys whose practices are not focused on this area of the law, and who wish to gain an understanding of the basics of estate planning for individuals with disabilities and their families.

The next day (November 15), Ms. Pantaleo will be a speaker at the Financial Planning Association of New York’s monthly educational meeting, providing an update on Elder Law and Special Needs law for accountants and financial services professionals. The program will take place at New York University’s midtown campus.
