This course, taught by experienced estate planning attorney Jennifer Scharre, will explore professional responsibility rules from three different perspectives. First, we will discuss the perspective of the client and the duties the attorney owes to the client. Second, we will cover the perspective of a fiduciary, and the special rules that apply. Finally, we will review the importance of preserving the attorney client privilege, and practical tips on doing so in Estate Planning practice in California.
