Mental Capacity: Legal and Medical Aspects of Assessment and Treatment provides expert advice and practical, reliable working knowledge of this complex subject. An experienced elder law attorney, a physician with extensive elder care expertise, and two noted geriatric psychologists collaborated to objectively assess mental capacity. They cover:

    • The definitions of mental incapacity and mental incompetency and how to accurately assess for both, and significant related court decisions

    • The law as it relates to different types of mental capacity required to perform different legal transactions

    • The medical causes, symptoms, and treatments of different types of incapacity and incompetency

    • Steps to evaluating, contesting, and defending legal capacity

In addition, the authors provide updates that contain recent caselaw on testamentary capacity, donative capacity, contractual capacity, and undue influence.
