The National Center for Law & Elder Rights is offering a free webinar on November 10, 2020 at 2 eastern on Representing a Person with a Guardian. Here's the info about the webinar
Attorneys, including legal services attorneys, should be open to representing individuals under guardianship. When representing a person with a guardian, an attorney may need to take extra steps to ensure their client has the right to counsel of their choice, and be a strong advocate to ensure that the proceedings are treated with dignity and the client’s due process rights are upheld. By using procedural and evidentiary tools—including alternatives to guardianship—advocates can increase clients’ independence and autonomy and restore their civil rights.
In this training, presenters will share:
Considerations for representing a legally incapacitated client;
Strategies for advocating for clients’ rights;
Standards and burdens for modifying or terminating guardianship; and
Information on requesting reasonable accommodations.
