TEAM TIDBITS: The NAELA Powley Elder Law Award Turns 20

Updated: Oct 6, 2022

Tim Takacs talks about the NAELA Powley Elder Law Award


Did you know that 2019 marks the 20th anniversary of an award for elder law attorneys sponsored by Tim Takacs?

It’s called the NAELA Powley Elder Law Award and it’s presented annually by the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA) to a NAELA member who is recognized in his or her community as a leader in promoting a greater understanding of the rights and needs of the elderly, and people with special needs.

Tim established the Powley Elder Law Award in memory of his grandparents, Wes and Helen Powley. Both were active in civic affairs for all of their lives, and Wes practiced dentistry well into his 80s.

The award is funded by a cash grant from the Takacs family to a nonprofit organization chosen by the Powley Award recipient.
