Comprising the Ethics Two portion of the program, Cynthia Sharp, Esquire’s talk will occupy the agenda’s 11:15 a.m. time slot. Titled “Who Is the Client in the Context of Estate Planning and Estate Administration?” Sharp’s discussion will cover a much-debated legal issue: whether engaging a single attorney is the most advantageous approach to estate planning and administration. In particular, she will address the potential conflicts of interest that are inherent in specific estate-planning situations. Specifically, she will answer the following questions: Should a husband and wife be represented by the same estate planner? What ramifications result from an attorney representing the interests of an estate where there are multiple beneficiaries? Should adult children bring their parent’s elder law matters to their own attorney when seeking advice on Medicaid planning and asset preservation??
In 2005, five million elderly Americans received Medicaid benefits. With federal guidelines constantly changing, now more than ever the nation’s golden population and their caregivers are faced with an abundance of estate planning questions…questions for which they don’t know where to turn for answers. With a central concentration on estate and elder law, The Sharp Law Firm is committed to providing estate planners with a solution to their dilemma.
