I suspect someone may be financially taking advantage of my parent(s).. what can I do?

This unfortunately happens far too often. As people age, sometimes their ability to safeguard their assets diminishes. Fortunately there are laws to protect senior citizens, and each case of potential financial abuse is unique based on the facts at work.

Parents, aunts/uncles or close friends who are seniors may often be reluctant to share information that may expose them as having been taken advantage of, which we understand. If you fear that someone close to you may be taken advantage of, please do not ignore it. I have been involved in many cases like these over the years, and I can help.

Please contact me if you have such a concern. I look forward to speaking with you.

The majority of Trusts are revocable in nature, which is the legal wording used to also indicate that they are amendable, or can be changed. This […]

I have an Estate Plan – does it need to be updated?

While there is no general rule of thumb as to how often an Estate Plan should be updated, I tell my valued clients that they should make an appointment to see me whenever something significant happens in their lives – birth of a child or a grand-child, retirement, inheritance, as a few example. One of the […]
