Ethics Interface
I am a life care planner frequently working for the opposing side of a local life care planner who, in my opinion, does extremely poor work. She is a certified life care planner but her reports do not reflect the basic tenets I was taught when I was trained. I do not know if the work is a result of incompetence or if it reflects an intention to inflate costs to satisfy the attorneys who retain her. At what point should another life care planner report a peer who does poor quality work?
