"Ethical Considerations When Your Client Might Have Diminishing Capacity"

Have you ever met with a client and thought, is my client slipping mentally? Worse yet, have you ever been in a situation when a family member to a client has taken a more involved role and wondered why isn’t your client speaking up and, when you question the client, they do not seem the same? What do the ethics rules tell us about these interactions?

Join us for a discussion on the PA Elder Abuse statutes along with the requirements of the surrounding states.  We will look at:

  • PA professional code of conduct for lawyers
  • Best practices per a private trust company
  • Best practices in the Advisory/Financial Planning Industry

Following the presentation, we discuss case studies of some real-life situations.
