Wallingford resident Adam L. Fernandez, a partner at the Blue Bell law firm Wisler Pearlstine, recently presented on the topics of Mediation and Dispute Resolution and the First Amendment and Cyberbullying.
The presentations were part of the Montgomery Bar Association’s Liberty & Law Civics Education Program in the Norristown Area School District. Both sessions took place in a sixth-grade class at East Norriton Middle School.
First, the class discussed the key components of a successful mediation, and students practiced playing the role of a mediator to resolve fictional disputes. Second, the class reviewed the limitations on the freedom of speech in the context of bullying and cyberbullying.
The MBA’s Liberty & Law Civics Education Program brings volunteer lawyers and judges into middle-school classrooms in the Norristown Area School District throughout the academic school year to educate youth about the justice system, the Constitution, and the rights and laws affecting their lives.
Fernandez focuses his practice on structuring and implementing estate and tax planning strategies for individuals at every stage of life and closely held businesses, including business succession planning. He takes pride in structuring flexible estate plans that protect surviving spouses and minor and adult beneficiaries, including beneficiaries with special needs.
His work includes assisting clients with all of the legal and tax aspects of the administration of decedents’ estates.
