I Have It Because Mom Likes Me The Best: How To Help Protect Vulnerable Seniors From Financial Exploitation

This program will review the “law” of advising elderly clients.  The program reviews a combination of statutes and case law addressing disability planning, succession planning, and eligibility for entitlement benefits, combined with practical knowledge of human interactions and family dynamics.  The program addresses both the written law, as well as the practical law, in advising elderly clients and, more specifically, what can be done to protect vulnerable seniors from financial exploitations.
