Please join us for a webinar on June 1, 2018, at 2:00 p.m. e.t. as Bill Benson, National Policy Advisor at the National Adult Protective Services Association, Keith Morris, President of Elder Law of Michigan and Director of the Center for Elder Rights Advocacy, and Jennifer Goldberg, Directing Attorney at Justice in Aging and National Center for Law and Elder Rights, discuss the benefits of civil legal assistance for victims of elder abuse.
The merits of civil legal assistance are sometimes underappreciated, as a result of which elder abuse victims may not be referred for or receive civil legal services consistently. In this webinar, you will learn how and to whom to make referrals for civil legal assistance that do not conflict with your professional ethics (e.g., confidentiality) and the myriad ways in which civil legal assistance can aid older victims in recovering from their victimization.
