WHO WE REPRESENT

Power of Attorney

Often we give a Power of Attorney or an Advanced Healthcare Directive, sometimes referred to as a Healthcare Power of Attorney, long before it is ever needed, and very often to someone who may or may not understand what, exactly, they can and cannot do with those documents. And sometimes, the people we entrust with (or get by other means) a Power of Attorney or Advanced Healthcare Directive use those documents for their benefit, not ours. We routinely counsel clients on what powers these documents provide, and their limitations, and, all too often, we find ourselves answering questions and, sometimes, litigating on behalf of clients who hold or those whom have been taken advantage of by others holding a Power of Attorney or an Advanced Healthcare Directive involving issues related to abuse of authority, including financial elder abuse claims, as part of our trust, estate and probate litigation practice. And when a Power of Attorney or an Advanced Healthcare Directive is insufficient, we can discuss and handle establishing a conservatorship for you or your loved one.
