  • Apr 07, 2021Shana Siegel Speaks on Legal Planning for Vulnerable Adults

    Shana Siegel, a Member of law firm Norris McLaughlin, P.A., and Chair of its Elder Care and Special Needs Law Practice Group, virtually presented “Specialized Legal Planning for Vulnerable Adults and Ethical Considerations Representing Clients with Diminished Capacity” on Monday, March 29, 2021, co-sponsored by the Federal Bar Association and myLawCLE.

    “In our office, we think a lot about solo seniors – older adults who live alone and have no immediate family. It is our duty to assist those who are vulnerable and to educate others who do the same,” said Siegel.

    Legal Planning for Vulnerable Adults

    Older adults and individuals with special needs face many challenges, but those without close family members are particularly at risk. This session helps identify clients who may be vulnerable and need specialized legal planning. Discussion topics include drafting documents to ensure clients’ rights are protected and ways to address the risk of exploitation, legal issues surrounding health care decision making for vulnerable adults, and ethical issues attorneys face when representing a client with diminished capacity as well as when acting as a fiduciary for a client or former client.

    This live webinar is now accessible on-demand, viewable for up to one year. One general and one ethics CLE credit may be earned, depending on state availability. For more information and to purchase the on-demand video for $195, please visit mylawcle.com.
