CHICAGO, IL -- Kerry Peck, the managing partner of Peck Bloom LLC in Chicago, has recently been appointed Chair of the Illinois State Bar Association Elder Law Section Council. As Chair, Peck will be charged with upholding the mission of the ISBA Elder Law Section:

• To inform and advise the members of the bar whose practice involves representing older persons in such areas as estate planning, public benefits, nursing home residents' rights, elder abuse, age discrimination, real estate issues, senior housing and guardianship.
• To review and make recommendations regarding proposed legislation that may affect older persons.
• To promote the legal rights of older persons to enjoy their communities, families and lives to the fullest extent possible and to inform older persons of these rights.
• To provide a forum for the exchange of views and information in furtherance of these goals.

"Elder law is becoming an increasingly important facet of law as the Baby Boomers age. The sheer number of Boomers that are entering retirement age is just one reason why it is so important for the ISBA to maintain this Council and I am delighted to serve as Chair. The Elder Law Section Council is committed to upholding the rights of our elders and I intend to fully support that mission," noted Kerry Peck, Managing Partner, Peck Bloom LLC (http://www.peckbloom.com).

He is past President of the 22,000 members of Chicago Bar Association and has served as delegate to the White House Conference on Aging. He regularly presents seminars on elder law topics to both his peers as well as doctors, hospitals, governmental bodies and individuals nearing retirement age.

Peck is not only a guardianship attorney in Chicago, but is well respected having been chosen as a "Super Lawyer" by his peers for four years in a row. Chicago Magazine's "Super Lawyer" designation refers to an attorney to whom other attorneys would refer their friends and family.

Areas of expertise include: estate planning, asset protection, administration of estates, trusts and guardianships, special needs planning, small business planning and tax law.
