Power of Attorney Disputes

The firm represents parties in disputes involving powers of attorney, including obtaining accountings and financial disclosure by agents acting under a power of attorney, and litigation over the financial use and abuse of powers of attorney.

We also pursue lawsuits to determine the validity of powers of attorney when questions arise regarding the mental capacity of or undue influence over the party granting the power, including the pursuit of guardianship to judicially terminate the power of attorney in question.

The firm also defends agents acting under a durable power of attorney in disputes involving financial accounting and disclosure issues, as well as issues involving the agentís right to make medical treatment decisions and living arrangements for a now incapacitated principal pursuant to a medical power of attorney. This defense can include defending against a proposed guardianship over the person who granted the power of attorney on the basis that no guardianship is necessary due to the existence of valid powers of attorney.
