Mecklenburg County Bar
Elder Law, Estate Planning & Probate, Ethics
In this presentation, attendees will be provided comparative descriptions of elder law and estate planning and probate law as legal specializations. With these descriptions as a foundation, the lecture will acknowledge those categories of legal services in the two specialties that are the same and those that are similar. The lecture will then focus on the differences inherent in the two specialties and apply those differences to simple client situations – and inviting attendee interaction. In providing analysis, the lecture will highlight some of the pitfalls (ethical and substantive) facing general and estate planning and probate law practitioners of which they may be unaware – potentially moving them beyond their legal ethical boundaries and beyond their competence to provide the representation expected by their clients.
Speaker: A. Frank Johns, Booth Harrington and Johns of NC PLLC, Greensboro, NC
