    Kayne added, “We are dedicated to advocating for those who cannot speak for themselves to make sure their wishes are honored and that they are protected from exploitation. We are truly appreciative of the NJSBA to allow us this opportunity to educate others who can also be advocates for this vulnerable group.”

    About the NJSBA Elder and Disability Law Program

    Hosted by the NJSBA Elder and Disability Law Section, this program will address the topic of solo seniors, including the demographic and societal changes leading to the rise in seniors aging independently, their special estate planning needs, and the ethical and practical issues of representing them, especially when there is no appointed fiduciary.
