Lunchtime Learning CLE

Sponsors: Dillon Health, Las Vegas Legal Video and Southern Nevada Senior Law Program

“Guiding Your Client Through the Decision-Making Process for Basic Estate Planning”

  • Course description: This training is designed to help attorneys anticipate the questions and concerns clients have regarding their estate planning—particularly the Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care Decisions document. The DPOAH involves some very serious decisions for clients to contemplate before they meet with an attorney to discuss and finalize their documents. Also, the DPOAH has recently undergone some important statutory revisions, and this training will address those changes as well as concerns regarding guardianship avoidance. Ideally, attorneys can provide “homework” for their clients following the initial interview, so the client can be more prepared and confident in selecting options as they finalize their documents.
