The financial exploitation of vulnerable adults is epidemic. While police, prosecutors, and adult protective services offer one course of action, many of these cases end up – or should end up – as civil lawsuits. The procedures for pursuing a civil remedy in these cases often crossover between probate processes and civil actions, and may involve a variety of legal theories. This webinar will cover:
• Jurisdictional issues
• Legal theories and remedies
• Client capacity and vulnerability
This webinar is tailored to experienced civil attorneys serving vulnerable older adults. A recording of a previous webinar detailing the legal basics of financial exploitation is available here.
Closed captioning will be available on this webinar. A link with access to the captions will be shared through GoToWebinar’s chat box shortly before the webinar start time.
