Power of Attorney Abuse Lawyers in Fairfield County
Protecting Your Family from Power of Attorney Abuse. Serving Clients Throughout Fairfield and New Haven Counties.
A power of attorney grants significant control and authority to one person over another, creating a fiduciary relationship. The holder of the Power of Attorney, called an Attorney-In-Fact, must act with good faith, fair dealing, and loyalty. While many attorneys-in-fact successfully perform their duties for years, the potential for financial abuse is great and is often committed by those closest to the elderly victim. If you have concerns regarding the actions of a loved one’s agent, or have been accused of abusing your authority, the Law Offices of Charles L. Kurmay can help. Our probate litigation lawyers have significant experience with cases involving the abuse of powers of attorney.
