Burnham Brown Partner Susan Firtch was elected to the Legal Assistance for Seniors-HICAP ("LAS") Board of Directors earlier this year. As a member of the LAS Education and Outreach Committee, Ms. Firtch processed the fee waiver applications for the recent LAS Elder Abuse Conference. LAS provides advocacy and counseling services for seniors in Alameda County. Its Elder Abuse Conference, held at Oakland City Hall on June 18, 2010, focused on elder abuse education and prevention, and was attended by medical and legal professionals, law enforcement, health care providers, and others actively engaged in the care and protection of seniors. The LAS Board is now working on its annual fundraising event, to be held in the Fall.
