I gained valuable insights as a result of this course. Thanks for that.

Great program on ethics involving conservatorships. Learned a lot from the Judges perspective as well.


Really good overview of the numerous issues in conservatorships and ways to avoid/navigate the problems

Good discussion of withdrawal from representation.

It was a very helpful seminar. I do not handle conservatorships normally. However, I am involved in two personal injury matters in which conservators were appointed so I took this course to better understand the issues in this setting. It would be helpful to have a program that addressed probate issues involving personal injury matters. These would included conservatorships, guardianships and minor settlements.

One of the best and most organized programs I’ve ever viewed.

Excellent content and scope of issues discussed. Was glad to have the panel at least touch on conservatorships necessitated for people with disabilities, especially those with IDD. But I think further exposition of those issues, especially with regard to supported decision making, would be good. While those may not be the most prominent issues the conservatorship bar meets on a day-to-day basis, they are important.

This program was excellent to demonstrate the different duties and obligations we have in representing the different parties in conservatorship matters.
