Discussion of Special Needs and Other Considerations with a Disabled Person as a Client Solo Small Firm Section Co-Chairs Sheila Kelly and Heather Gilbert will facilitate a discussion about special needs and other considerations when you have a disabled person as a client, including ethical concerns. Contribute to the discussion with one thing you have found helpful when facing ethical dilemmas while working with a disabled person as a client.
Time: 8:00 to 8:30 a.m.
Presenters: Sheila J. Kelly, Sheila J. Kelly Law Firm, LLC; Heather Gilbert, Gilbert Law PLLC

Pursuing a guardian for a child with a disability can bring up issues that are not typical in cases where the proposed ward is elderly. This presentation will cover some of the ins and outs of pursing a guardianship of a child with a disability.  What are some of the typical issues and obstacles?  Who will get guardianship when the parents are divorced?  Should divorced parents serve as co-guardians?

When should you start the process?  Should you pursue a guardianship with limited or full powers?  Should you petition for a Conservatorship at the same time?  What happens if the child – or another interested party – objects?  Come to find out the answer to these questions – and bring questions of your own to discuss with the group.

Time:8:30 to 9:30 a.m.
Presenter: Mary Szondy, Attorney at Law
