Life Transitions: Navigating the Narrow Passages

A Congregational Care Series

Faith UMC offers a monthly series with guest speakers who will help us prepare for significant changes in one’s life. The hope is that the talks themselves may evolve into support groups or new small group ministries. Each event will include a catered meal and panel discussion or lecture, followed by a time for questions and answers.


Making the Tough Choices: Estate Planning, Living Wills and Medical Directives

November 14, 2017, 12:30-2:15pm, Fellowship Hall

Our next session of the series will be a luncheon featuring attorney Amy L. Griboff, an expert on estate planning and elder law issues. The workshop will begin with a catered lunch. Please RSVP by Thursday, November 9 to Scott Roby, Faith’s Director of Congregational Care.

Ms. Griboff shared this: “When I was only in my twenties, my mother passed away unexpectedly and I was called on to serve as guardian of my grandmother who suffered from Alzheimer’s and needed someone to make her financial and health care decisions. Those experiences inspired me to become a lawyer – to help people create the right estate plans for their families and prepare for the challenges of aging. I know firsthand how confusing and difficult it is to navigate probate when a loved one passes, to cope with Medicaid if a loved one moves into a nursing home, or to contend with guardianship if estate planning documents were not completed or cannot be found.”

Ms. Gribbof graduated from Clark University with a B.A. in Psychology and from Washington College of Law at American University with her law degree, cum laude. She is licensed to practice law in D.C. and Maryland. Currently working with the McMillan Metro, PC firm in Potomac, she has over fourteen years of experience as an elder law and estate planning attorney.
