NVEPC Membership Meeting: What Trusts and Estates Practitioners Wish Other Professional Advisors Knew About The Ethics Rules Applicable to Lawyers
Join us on Tuesday, January 28, 2020, for our Membership Meeting at Maggiano's Tysons Corner!
In October 2019, Messrs, Dar and Melnick presented on ethics at the Virginia CLE Annual Trusts and Estates Seminar. Drawing upon the fact pattern they created for that presentation, which involves a client with diminished capacity, elder abuse, and other issues and challenges, they will discuss various ethical duties and responsibilities lawyers have that non-lawyers may find helpful to be aware of and informed about. The presentation will include specific discussions of the ethics rules addressing confidentiality, joint representation, conflicts of interest, and lawyers serving as fiduciaries.
