LEO: Representing Mentally Incompetent LE Op. 463
Representing Mentally Incompetent Client.
July 21, 1982
EC:7-12 recognizes the additional burden placed upon a lawyer who
represents a client who is mentally impaired. The lawyer may be compelled
to make decisions for the client. It would be wise, however, for the
lawyer to seek appointment of a committee for the client.
