COGNITIVE DECLINE

As attorneys age, some develop a loss of cognitive abilities, which impacts their competency in handling client matters. Unfortunately, some lawyers are finding themselves in the disciplinary system often because of some of these health issues, which go deeper than just having a forgetful memory. Missing deadlines, forgetting court dates, losing case files, and lack of comprehension of facts are just a few examples of problems that have resulted in grievances being filed against an attorney in these circumstances. TLAP can help through education and other resources.
