    This program will cover the uniquely difficult challenges to the decision-making paradigm when representing cognitively impaired, older adults.

    Questions considered will include:

    1. Should the representation of a client with diminished capacity always be client-directed even if the lawyer knows that the client's objectives will harm the client
    2. When, if ever, may a lawyer substitute the lawyer's judgment for that of the client to do what the lawyer believes is in the client's best interests?
    3. May the lawyer disclose confidential client information to third parties to obtain decision-making assistance for an impaired client?
    4. Several issues related to the Model Rules of Professional Conduct (MRPC), such as:

    • Who decides objectives [MRPC 1.2(a)]
    • From whom the lawyer accepts direction [MRPC 5.4(c)]
    • Other confidentiality obligations [MRPC 1.6]
    • Conflicts of interest [MRPC 1.7-1.9]
    • Matters related to MRPC 1.14

    More specifically, panelists will discuss:

    • Identifying actions you need to take to protect your license as well as the client's legal interest under MRPC 1.14
    • Preserving the attorney-client privilege when other family members become involved under MRPC 1.6
    • Identifying potential conflicts of interest related to the payment of the fee, scope of representation, and multiple representation of parties
