Joel Feldman from the Philadelphia law firm Anapol Schwartz, P.C., educated others about delivering news with compassion for the bereaved as well as concern for the messenger.
PHILADELPHIA—July 7, 2010—Attorney Joel Feldman has personal experience of what it’s like to be the recipient of devastating news in regard to the death of a loved one. On July 17, 2009, he and his wife Dianne Anderson received news that their 21-year-old daughter, Casey, had been struck in a pedestrian crosswalk by a distracted driver.
Since then Feldman has been speaking out about distracted drivers and how to
compassionately interact with grieving loved ones on both a professional and personal level.
On June 15, Feldman along with other speakers participated in a death notification seminar at the Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) SE PA. Topics included who should notify, apprehensions of the person assigned to notify, attitude for notification delivery, coping strategies, and survivor reactions.
For his dedication, Attorney Feldman received acknowledgment on his humane work on this difficult subject matter. The Anapol Schwartz Foundation sponsored the seminar.
