Zoom Webinar Presentation

Amy Gjesdahl, JD, Elder Law Attorney, Dutton Casey and Mesoloras, PC
Arlington Heights, Chicago, Lisle and Skokie

This session will discuss the types of decision-makers authorized by Illinois law to make decisions on behalf of a disabled adult including agents under Powers of Attorney, trustees, guardians, and health care surrogates. Before you can successfully work with these decision-makers, you need to (1) understand whether the decision-maker is legally entitled to make the decision at issue, and (2) know the extent of a decision-maker’s authority and what ethical standards he or she should apply when making decisions. This presentation will discuss these issues, and more, along with questions commonly asked of elder law attorneys.
