In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, attorneys may have changed client intake, signing documents, and other typical firm processes. However, these changes may pose additional challenges for older clients.

Additional points of discussion include the attorney’s ability to determine client’s capacity or ensure confidentiality due to technology. Lastly, do your legal documents account for older clients’ needs, such as Medicaid and Special Needs?
