Wiley Co-Moderates the NCBA Surrogate’s Court CLE entitled, “Determining Capacity: It Can Make Your Head Spin”

April 12, 2017 | Trusts & Estates

On April 19, 2017, the Nassau County Bar Association Surrogate’s Court, Trusts & Estates Committee will be presenting a three-hour CLE, “Determining Capacity: It Can Make Your Head Spin,” at the Nassau County Bar Association.

With an aging population and a rise in the diagnosis of psychological, psychotic and cognitive disorders, estate planners and litigators have their work cut out for them when deciding what to do when confronted with the question of an individual’s capacity. How does one assess capacity? What are the best practices when representing a client with diminished capacity? Using case studies and hypotheticals, this three-hour program will examine these and other questions with the aim of providing an overview of how the legal and medical communities define and treat capacity and with practical tips and advice.

Dennis Wiley, one of the co-chairs of the Committee, helped organize the event and will be one of the moderators.
