Friday Program Agenda
The Impact of the NC Uniform Power of Attorney Act on Elder Law | From 2018 Basics of Elder & Special Needs Law, October 12, 2018 | Andrew Cobin, Brady Cobin Law Group PLLC, Raleigh
Elder law is a growing specialty and it demands an understanding of more than ten different areas of law.
Elder law attorneys primarily serve people as they age (older persons) and people with disabilities with the aim of helping the client achieve their goals and objectives in the most efficient and resourceful way. The use of a power of attorney is not novel to the practice of elder law. North Carolina’s recent adoption of the Uniform Power of Attorney Act (UPOAA) does not raise new considerations and concerns for elder law attorneys in planning for their clients, however, it increases the importance of understanding present concerns and how careful drafting can further your client’s goals.
Rather than identifying how a power of attorney affects each individual area of law under the umbrella of elder law, this program focuses on the questions you should consider in counseling your client on how a power of attorney can advance, or impact your client’s estate planning goals.
Ten Things Estate Litigators Want Estate Planners to Know | From 2018 Basics of Elder & Special Needs Law, October 12, 2018 | Rachel A. Fuerst, Henson Fuerst PA, Raleigh
In this session, learn from a litigator’s perspective, how certain estate planning strategies can adversely create or beneficially avoid the potential for estate-related litigation.
Focusing on Wellness as a Professional† | From NCBA 2018 Annual Review, October 25-26, 2018 | Sarah E. Nagae, Nexsen Pruet PLLC, Raleigh
The high pressure and high stakes of legal practice can easily lead to knee-jerk, emotion-based reactions that can exhibit a low level of professionalism and may result in acts that are ethically questionable.
Mindfulness is developing the ability to stay aware of your thoughts and emotions during high pressure situations which, in turn, helps you maintain your perspective and a sense of calm. When you are able to pause, breathe, and then act thoughtfully, you have a better chance of avoiding hasty decisions you will later regret. You are also better able to consider the range of responses available to you in the face of difficult choices and choose a path that will be most beneficial to your client.
