Power of Attorney Disputes

By Jonathan B. Schrieder Feb 06, 2018

Persons with power of attorney are empowered with significant responsibility over the finances and health options of other people.  Having control over another person’s finances can lead to bad behaviour.  No one wants to see their loved one taken advantage of by someone with power of attorney.  But it happens.

We represent family members against people wrongly exercising power of attorney over their loved ones.

When these powers are granted or revoked, the person granting them must be of sound mind and free from undue influence.

Where there are multiple persons exercising these powers, disputes may arise.  We handle and resolve these disputes through negotiation and litigation.

We also defend persons rightfully exercising power of attorney when they are challenged.
