Elder Law & Ethics: Multi-representation

Many legal hotline advocates encounter issues associated with multi-representation when working in an elderlaw practice. This webinar, part of a three-part series, explores this issue in detail and provides insight on how to deal with a variety of issues associated with multi-representation.

This webinar addresses:

  • Representing couples as well as members of the same family.
  • A discussion of differences in normal overpayment collection cases vs. fraud cases.
  • Steps for attorneys to follow when asked to represent more than one client in an issue.
  • It does NOT discuss class action representation

Resources are provided to help analyze these issues, and the presenter examines several case studies throughout the webinar using a step-by-step process.


  • Professor Kimberly E. O’Leary, Director of the 60+ Elderlaw Clinic at Thomas M. Cooley Law School
