About This Webinar:

Tune in for a special ethics CLE session* of KrauseCAST featuring Chasity Sharp Grice of The Estate and Family Law Group!

Elder law and estate planning attorneys know the realities of working with aging clients, but what happens if the individual you represent is no longer able to make clear decisions?

Rule 1.14 of the Model Rules of Professional Responsibility informs on the client-lawyer relationship where the client has diminished capacity. Normally, the lawyer is admonished to “maintain a normal client-lawyer relationship with the client.”

This live presentation will cover:

  • How to have a normal relationship with a client with diminished capacity
  • When it is appropriate to take protective action against one's client
  • Whether to disclose the client's condition
  • Whether to offer emergency legal assistance in cases where the client is unable to establish a client-lawyer relationship or make judgments regarding the matter
  • References to guidance from other organizations, such as ACTEC, that have promulgated comments or best practices

Don’t miss this highly relevant session for your practice! Reserve your spot today.
