Guardianship Law in Nevada CLE (STREAMING)
Part of the Richard A. Harris Series of Continuing Legal Education

Justice James Hardesty, Senator Becky Harris & Kim Surratt, Esq. will be speaking on the impact of the new laws passed during the 2017 Legislative Session on the Guardianship Law in Nevada.

In this seminar you will learn:

  • The history that prompted new Guardianship for Proposed Protected Persons
  • New Guardianship standards: least restrictive assistance and scope
  • What are the new Bill of Rights for Protected Persons and how are they enforced?
  • What is a lock box?
  • Protecting your client in a PI case
  • What is the new Permanent Guardianship Commission?
  • What is the State Compliance Office and what will it do?
  • Will there be statewide rules superseding local rules?

During the Nevada State Legislature 2017, session the topic of guardianship for the elderly and disabled was a hot topic. There have been many documented cases in Nevada of professional guardians taking advantage of those who require help with their finances. Many of those who required a guardian to help pay their bills found them broke due to the unlawful acts of those who were supposed to protect their assets. 

Justice Hardesty along with Senator Harris and in partnership with the NJA championed a law that will better protect consumers who require a guardianship. This law will create a better system for monitoring cases, auditing cases, create higher standards for those acting as guardians, and create tougher penalties for those who take advantage of those they are charged with protecting.

Justice Hardesty will discuss why the law was needed.

Senator Harris will address the challenges she faced when sponsoring this legislation.

This seminar is an ethics seminar because all attorneys should know and understand how to best protect their clients and understand the laws that now govern guardianships and protecting those most in need of protection.
