The Commission on Lawyer Assistance Programs is co-sponsoring the upcoming ABA ethics webinar, “Ethical Issues of Representing a Client with Diminished Capacity.” Details on the program follow.
Representing a client with diminished capacity entails several competing ethical considerations. Don’t fall into one of the traps. Attend this webinar to learn:
• How to maintain a “normal” attorney-client relationship with a client with diminished capacity;
• How to determine when a lawyer may seek decision-making assistance for a client with diminished capacity from a family member or third-party without violating the duty of confidentiality; and
• How to represent a client with diminished capacity in court.
