Roberta Flowers

Professor Flowers recently presented an interactive workshop utilizing polling technology to give participants vital information about the growing problem of elder abuse and elder exploitation. Using case studies, the participants discussed the important role that private Elder Law attorneys play in the prevention, detection and prosecution of this epidemic problem.  Professor Flowers was also a co-presenter with Shirley Berger Whitenack, CAP, at an interactive session looking at the ethical issues an attorney encounters when representing a fiduciary. This session covered issues such as who is the client, confidentiality, conflicts of interest and focus on Special Needs Trusts as well as other types of fiduciary relationships.
