Payal Salsburg co-presents a webinar for the Boston Bar Association entitled, “Ethical Dilemmas and Considerations in Representing Impaired Clients.“ This program takes place on January 13, 2021 and is the first in a 3-part series focusing on an attorney’s legal and ethical duties when facing the prospect of representing a mentally impaired client.
According to a leading mental health organization, 1 in 5 adults in the United States suffers from some form of mental health condition or disorder. Over the course of an attorney’s career, there is a good chance that representing someone who suffers from some degree of mental incapacity. Knowing how to assess capacity and deciding how to proceed if you have doubts about a client’s mental health is easier said than done.
