This blog is written by John E. (“Ned”) Perry, a former corporate counsel now practicing elder law from a home office in Anthem, Arizona. Ned’s career began in 1979 with a judicial clerkship at the Pennsylvania Superior Court (Judge Robert Van der Voort). He then took a position with a Tokyo-based international law firm. After 4 years in private practice he went in-house and spent 6 years with Banque Indosuez and 6 years with Lehman Brothers, where he was General Counsel with responsibility for all legal matters in the Asia Pacific region. After leaving Lehman in 1996 he took a detour from the law to launch a small digital printing business in Santa Rosa, CA which he then sold in 1999 to return to the corporate world. He joined Broadlink Communications as VP and General Counsel in 1999 (while passing the California bar exam) and after the technology melt down left his company without funding, accepted a position with Deutsche Bank as head of Compliance for Asia/Pacific with responsibility for 13 Asian countries. He returned to the US in 2004 to start up a fund management business and at the same time became deeply involved with The ARC of Arizona, a non-profit serving the needs of the developmentally disabled, where he served as Treasurer and member of the board from 2005 through 2010. In 2011 he took and passed the Arizona bar exam and launched his elder law practice.

    Thank you for putting together this blog. I, and many others, will find it to be a valuable resource for keeping ourselves updated and educated on elder & disability law issues.

    I have greatly appreciated the legal documents you have prepared for me, in insuring that the welfare of my disabled adult daughter have been met. Executing these documents has given me a sense of peace I did not realize was attainable.

  2. Hey Ned, great comments. We in New Mexico faced something similar. Threats of legal recourse slowed things down.
    We are now in a struggle with the state over the use of a tool called the Supports Intensity Scale (SIS) to allocate resources to individuals. Big mistake and supported by a consultant from Az by the name of Peter Berns.
