In this program, Mr. Wright will cover such topics as how to identify the personality type of the lawyer with whom you are negotiating; 12 tactics that can be used by attorneys to achieve better results in negotiations; and how these negotiation skills may be used in, and be impacted by, the current pandemic environment where mediations, depositions, and other communications are taking place online instead of “in person, face to face.”

Looking back at July — Tara R. Burd & Kimberly Swierenga presented: “The Challenges of Aging: Elder Abuse and Preventative Estate Planning“

Our last MCLE “lunchtime” program was Thursday July 9th at 12:00 noon, via Zoom meeting. We were very pleased to have attorneys Tara R. Burd & Kimberly Swierenga as our speakers for July, giving joint presentation of “The Challenges of Aging: Elder Abuse and Preventative Estate Planning.”

Nearly every person suffers some level of cognitive decline or impairment eventually. For most individuals, the process is gradual and there is a rarely a bright line to alarm friends or family that some guidance or oversight may be necessary for their loved one. This presentation will address common forms of financial elder abuse, and ways in which comprehensive estate planning can help to prevent it.
