  3. Estate Planning in Oregon


Thursday, February 2, 2012
12 NOON – 1:30 P.M.
at Samuels Yoelin Kantor LLP offices
Complimentary lunch will be served

Presented by  Anthony Dal Ponte, Eric Wieland and Dr. Leeza Maron 

The topic of testamentary capacity presents challenging and complex issues, especially given the fact that the courts seek definitive answers while the medical community is more inclined to provide answers based on probabilities.

Estate planners, fiduciaries and trustees will all benefit from this discussion of what the courts look for in terms of capacity, and how attorneys and others can assess testamentary capacity when working with clients. Dr. Leeza Maron, OHSU Assistant Professor and Licensed Psychologist, will discuss the basics of neuropsychological assessment and its role in estate planning — and how it can be used during trial.
