Working with Clients with Diminished Capacity

When: Tuesday, September 15, 2020, at 11:00 a.m. PT/2:00 p.m. ET.

The law presumes that adults have capacity, and lawyers and advocates are responsible for helping understand their client’s ability to make decisions. This presentation will unpack the complex issues lawyers confront when working with clients with capacity issues. The presentation will review:

  • Basics of capacity
  • Informal assessments
  • Formal Assessments
  • Using decision making supports to leverage residual capacity
  • Empowering individuals with dementia when capacity is fluid


  • David Godfrey, Senior Attorney, American Bar Association Commission on Law and Aging
