As difficult as it can be to conceive, events could render any attorney unable to continue the practice of law without warning. If they happen, a client’s interest must be protected. For this reason, a lawyer’s duty of competent representation includes arranging to safeguard the client’s interest in the event of the lawyer’s death, disability, impairment or incapacity. This publication addresses the planning process, and is created to help prepare for the unexpected. Created with the assistance of the Oregon State Bar Association and IBA members Raymond Good, Paula J. Schaefer, Debra G. Richards, Gerald W. Mayer, Judge Robyn Moberly and Edward B. Hopper. There is a $6 shipping and handling charge.
