It's not uncommon for families to move from one area of the country to the next due to job responsibilities and employment opportunities. As a result, more and more elderly Americans find themselves living on their own late into their lives. When their health begins to fail or when dishonest neighbors, health care providers, or acquaintances manipulate them, it may be necessary to establish a guardianship to protect their estate and interests.
The law office of Levine & Levine provides families with legal strategies to prevent manipulation in cases where competency and undue influence is a concern. Consulting psychiatrist and geriatric specialists, our estate planning lawyer prepares and collects evidence and testimony needed to contest a will or address issues of capacity and undue influence in regard to your elderly family member.
For more information regarding the legal means available for protecting your loved one, contact estate planning lawyer at Snyder & Wiles today.
When dishonest neighbors, friends or family members take advantage of an ailing parent, they often convince them to change their will or sign over property to them. Levine & Levine has the expert witness resources and investigative ability needed to successfully challenge changes to a will or property title. In order to establish undue influence, our office consults psychologists, neurologists and other experts. In cases where money has been withdrawn from an account, we work with forensic accountants in order to recover as much money as possible.
If you have concerns about the competency of a loved one, contact the elder law attorney at Levine & Levine today. We can help you put in place legal and financial safeguards for the well-being of an aging parent, ailing spouse or relative in need of help. Call today to schedule an appointment.
