There are times when a lawyer is faced with representing a client with diminished capacity. The client’s diminished capacity may be known by the lawyer at the time that the representation starts or may develop after an otherwise normal lawyer-client relationship is established. Ethical dilemmas exist for a lawyer attempting to represent their client's best interests, especially when the lawyer is unsure whether the client fully understands the legal process involved. Using real-life hypotheticals, this session will apply the ethical rules that address client-lawyer relationships where the lawyer thinks the client may have diminished capacity.
