Sean Ociepka Presents on Ethics for Guardianship Attorneys


At a presentation on December 7, 2016, for the John Waldo Ballou Inn of Court, Sean Ociepka spoke to a group of attorneys about the ethics of representing individuals in adult guardianship proceedings. Adult guardianship proceedings take place in Maine probate courts and concern the fundamental constitutional rights of adults who are alleged to be incapacitated. Attorneys representing such individuals are often confronted with complicated ethical issues during the course of the proceedings. Sean’s wealth of experience in adult guardianship proceedings give him a unique perspective from which to discuss these ethical considerations.
