Challenges to Power of Attorneys
Challenges to Powers of Attorney
Powers of attorney allow individuals to give substitute decision-making power over their health and finances to people they trust. What happens when an attorney under a power of attorney violates that trust and abuses his or her power? What do you do if you are accused of abusing your power as an attorney?
