Trouble in Paradise: Navigating Elder Law Ethics

Monday, December 11, 2017

Presented by: Rebecca A. Hobbs, Esq., CELA, O’Donnell, Weiss & Mattei, P.C.

From the moment you pick up the phone, ethical issues come into play. Your natural instinct is to answer that legal question you are being asked. Be careful! 
Ethical dilemmas are a particular concern for elder law attorneys. These concerns are heightened in an elder law practice due to the very nature of the client base. You encounter clients with diminished capacity, clients who do not want to make decisions and try to defer to other family members, and often many family members present at the consultation. 
Join Rebecca A. Hobbs, certified elder law attorney and ElderCounsel member, as she discusses these and other ethical concerns that face elder law attorneys every day.
