But, you owe it to your loved one to pursue justice.

Our attorneys have over 20 years of combined experience advocating for families facing similar nightmares.

Fighting Back Against Abuse Under Power of Attorney

In Florida, elder financial abuse is all too common. As senior citizens age, they start to rely on neighbors, caregivers and relatives to manage their daily needs. This can unfortunately cause seniors to become vulnerable to elder fraud. You may know this all too well after seeing your loved one being taken advantage of by the person named under his or her power of attorney.

Our probate lawyers understand the deep emotions involved. You may blame yourself for not being more involved in your loved one's financial affairs. Or you may find yourself caught in the middle of a family dispute not knowing whom to believe. Our lawyers are highly effective at untangling the layers of complexity without adding any fuel to the fire.

We will review your loved one's estate-planning documents to understand the responsibilities expected of the person with power of attorney. Did the person in fact overstep his or her boundaries making decisions outside of what was defined? Did the person with power of attorney breach his or her fiduciary duty or did he or she make an innocent mistake? Is there evidence that the person having power of attorney profited off your loved one? Did the person in fact misappropriate or steal assets?

Our attorneys have the skills, experience and tenacity to uncover the full extent of abuse or fraud your loved one endured. We will take swift action to help you remove the person with power of attorney and re-appoint a trusted individual. If any money was stolen, we will fight relentlessly to help your loved one recover financially, and potentially recover triple the amount of damages under the Civil Theft Statute for you or your loved one.
