Legal Basics: Representing a Client in a Defense of Guardianship Case

When: Tuesday, September 10, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. PT/2:00 p.m. ET.

Lawyers serve an essential role in protecting the due process rights of every defendant or respondent in an adult guardianship case. This can include presenting evidence that no guardian is needed or that a limited guardianship is sufficient to provide the protections that are needed. This webcast will focus on the role of an attorney representing the interests and wishes of a client who is the subject of a guardianship action.

Presenters will share:

  • How to protect the client’s due process rights; 
  • Options for when a guardian/conservator is not needed;
  • How to respond when the filing asks for more protection than is needed; and 
  • Actions to take when a guardianship order is no longer needed or a less restrictive order is needed.

This training will explore common due process concerns and substantive defenses in adult guardianship cases. Presenters will discuss how to develop and present evidence advocating for the least restrictive alternatives in an adult guardianship case. 

Previous NCLER trainings on this topic include:

Presenters:

  • David Godfrey, Senior Attorney, ABA Commission on Law and Aging
  • Catherine Seal, Senior Partner, Kirtland & Seal, L.L.C.

Closed captioning will be available on this webcast. A link with access to the captions will be shared through GoToWebinar’s chat box shortly before the webcast start time.

NOTE: This training will be presented in a WEBCAST format to accommodate more participants. Due to the high volume of participants, computer audio will be the only option to listen to the presentation. No telephone call-in number will be provided. Please plan accordingly. Thank you.
