i think it’s
00:05
important for a number of reasons um one
00:09
familiarity with experts particularly in
00:12
our
00:13
undue influence cases our financial
00:15
elder abuse cases
00:16
which often are also in the will and
00:18
trust arena we need to have
00:20
good experts to explain
00:24
to the trier of fact be it a judge or a
00:27
jury
00:28
how our client was manipulated how did
00:31
their cognitive impairment allow them
00:34
to be manipulated in this way and you
00:36
can’t do that
00:37
without good experts so if you don’t
00:38
regularly practice in the area you don’t
00:40
know
00:41
who are the experts in this field and
00:44
who are the best ones that can
00:45
communicate
00:47
best with the jury also a point i
00:50
touched on earlier which is the law
00:51
the law in the elder abuse arena is
00:54
changing rapidly
00:55
and the only way you can keep up with it
00:57
is an attorney who regularly does this
01:00
we’re doing this day in day out we keep
01:02
up on the law and that gives us an
01:04
advantage because often you know the
01:06
judges are not keeping up on that law
01:08
because the judges have to keep up
01:10
with all different types of issues so
01:12
the more
01:13
you establish that this is your focus
01:15
then you get extra credibility with the
01:17
judges
01:18
because they know they can trust you
01:20
that this is an area law
01:22
that you practice day in day out
