Scott Counsel Estate and Elder Care Law is pleased to welcome April Smith to our practice as our new Regional Director of Marketing. This position was previously held by Helene Weinstein who has led our marketing efforts since the inception of the practice.
Mrs. Smith has been in the senior living industry for 12 years. She started her career as a caregiver for Home Instead Senior Care and was promoted to Director of Marketing within her first year. In her time there, she organized their annual “Be a Santa to a Senior Program” which has delivered over 1,000 gifts to isolated seniors in the community.
Mrs. Smith served as a liaison between her care team and doctors, hospitals, rehabs, and local healthcare partners. She also educated seniors on services available to them in the comfort of their own homes. She then moved on to working in assisted living communities serving as a resource for families finding placement for their loved ones.
In her new role with Scott Counsel, she will support the efforts of the marketing team in educating seniors and families on the importance of estate planning and having an advocate for elder law issues.
When Mrs. Smith is not working, she spends her time with her husband, four children, and three dogs.
Ms. Weinstein will begin her new role as Director of Special Projects where she will assist Principal attorney, Justin L. Scott, Esq., in the firm’s continued growth. Ms. Weinstein said she is “thrilled to welcome April to this challenging and rewarding position and is certain she will be successful for many years to come.”
Mr. Scott similarly commented, “The news today helps align our firm with some of the biggest elder law practices in the state. Our mission is still grounded in the belief that every life deserves a plan. I am honored to work alongside such talented people.”
