“Grey Matters” Webinar Addresses Issue of Cognitive Decline in Lawyers

This article is for informational purposes only. It is not intended to be used in place of professional advice, treatment, or care in any way. Lawyers, law students, judges, and other legal professionals in Massachusetts can find more on scheduling a Free & Confidential appointment with a licensed clinician here.

More than once, lawyers and family members have come to LCL when struggling to find a way to deal with colleagues whose cognitive capacities are deteriorating.  (One highlight of the wonderful if not entirely realistic TV series “The Practice” [1997-2004] that has always stuck in my own memory is the episode [click here to view it] featuring the late, unforgettable actor James Whitmore as a renowned attorney whose memory is failing.)

Of course, there are no easy answers, but thankfully there are legal and clinical professionals who bring experience and information to bear on this painful kind of situation, and some of them were presented at an ABA-sponsored  live webinar and teleconference on the subject in August 2013, when this blog post originally appeared.
