As our population ages, the number of people in America suffering from Alzheimer’s and dementia is staggering – by 2050 the CDC projects that 14 million Americans will suffer from Alzheimer’s alone. Litigating cases where clients cannot tell their story presents various challenges and opportunities. Understanding how to handle these issues, and in many cases make this issue a strength, is critical to properly representing the elderly suffering from cognitive impairment. In this course, attorney Michael Brusca discusses best practices for handling these nuanced cases.  


Learning Objectives: 

I.     Identify these diseases and how they manifest

II.    Recognize the common challenges in working with clients suffering from such ailments

III.   Understand how to frame your strongest issues

IV.   Discuss common scenarios in these cases and best practices to approach them
