Austin Jewish Business Network Features Estate Planning Expert
By Jennifer Lava
The Austin Jewish Business Network announced its lineup of speakers and networking for the upcoming year, kicking off with attorney Dvorah Ben-Moshe, who will discuss wills, powers of attorneys, incapacity documents and trusts with her presentation, “Estate Planning-The Greatest Gift to Yourself and Family,” Oct. 17.
With a background in civil litigation and license to practice law in Florida and Texas, Ben-Moshe founded Ben-Moshe Law PLLC in 2014. Based in Austin, Texas, her practice specializes in concierge personalized estate planning.
Ben-Moshe is an attorney ad litem under Texas Probate Code for heirship and guardianship proceedings in Travis County and attended the Center for Public Policy Dispute Resolution at the University of Texas School of Law in Austin for mediation training.
In 1990, Ben-Moshe graduated from University of Southern California with a bachelor’s degree in psychology, completed graduate work at San Francisco State University in women’s studies, and graduated from Florida Coastal School of Law in 2002.
Ben-Moshe is also the president of the nonprofit, Civication Inc., established in 2008 serving to educate and engage people in the political process to strengthen and enrich our democratic society. Civication Inc. produced a national educational program, Justice is Also Deaf, and ACCESS News, a television program that aired on Public Broadcasting Service KLRU in Austin, Texas, for two years. Fluent in American Sign Language, Ben-Moshe has been involved with the deaf community since 1995 and is the mother of two children, Ilan and Eden.
AJBN’s monthly networking and educational meetings are on the third Tuesday of each month from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Frisco Diner, 6801 Burnet Road, in the glass atrium on the Burnet Road side of the building.
AJBN has no cover charge or room fee, but attendees are required to order a meal, not just a drink or dessert, while enjoying an evening of networking, education, camaraderie and door prizes. The Frisco is an Austin original, has a great menu and serves alcohol. There will be table service and separate checks. Attendees are asked to generously tip the staff.
All Jews, those partnered with Jews and members of Shalom Austin are welcome. Bring business cards, promotional materials or resumes to share.
