Amy Farrar and Amanda Moore have accepted invitations to speak to a variety of groups on estate planning and elder law. They presented to a group of seniors at the St. Clair Senior Center in Murfreesboro about how proper estate and elder law planning can prevent frustration and expense in the future. Moore also took part in a panel sponsored by Alzheimer’s Tennessee, “What Every Caregiver Needs to Know and When You Need to Know It,” as part of a webinar series on aging in place. Along with other experts in their respective fields, Moore was part of a program to help listeners understand their options and next steps for senior care. She explained her work in elder law and the benefits of estate planning. Farrar and Moore will next speak to the Murfreesboro Jaycees on February 25.
The Tennessee Center for Estate & Elder Law welcomed an intern in January. Through the Harpeth Hall School’s Winterim program, high school senior Elisabeth Nelson spent three weeks with the firm to learn what a career in law can look like. Harpeth Hall’s Winterim program allows students to participate in internships to explore potential career interests and gain experience in the workplace. As an intern at the Tennessee Center for Estate & Elder Law, Elisabeth attended client meetings, watched probate court, and helped with special projects. Through partnerships with other members of the community, Elisabeth was able to shadow both Judge Lisa Eischeid and the law firm of Catron and Fowler. Going into her internship, Elisabeth hoped to achieve a greater understanding of the work Farrar and Moore do for their clients and is grateful to have been able to do that and more. As for her future plans, Elisabeth knows she would love to have a career in law after this opportunity with the firm.
The Tennessee Center for Estate & Elder Law, PLLC is always working to refine its clients’ experience at the firm. To that end, co-founders Amy Farrar and Amanda Moore completed the award-winning Scaling Small Law program. Hosted by the Tennessee Bar Association, this program focused on business education and practice growth. Created with entrepreneurial lawyers and newly formed small firms in mind, the program included roundtable discussions, training sessions, and assignments on topics ranging from business planning and finance to law practice management and digital marketing. This course pushed its participants to look strategically at the development of their law firms in areas like client experiences and technology use. Such work gave Farrar and Moore further tools to continue to work on their firm instead of just in their firm.
Scaling Small Law just received the Excellence Award in Continuing Education from the Tennessee Society of Association Executives. Farrar and Moore were honored to have been in the inaugural class.
