Elder abuse or exploitation comes in many forms, including physical and financial. Attorneys often see this abuse before others as they work through the estate planning or other legal issues of the elderly. This program will examine the ethical obligations of attorneys who discover or suspect that their elderly clients are the object to abuse. Both financial and physical abuse issues will be examined, including the obligation of lawyers to break confidences and report abuse to governmental authorities and others.
