Contested Powers of Attorney in New York
New York Estate Litigation Attorney
power of attorney is a document that grants legal authority to another party (agent). By
executing a power of attorney, an individual can give the agent the authority
to make legal decisions on his/her behalf. These decisions can involve
financial, health and property matters. The execution of a power of attorney,
while often essential and useful, can carry risks. A power of attorney
in the wrong hands can be abused through self-dealing, embezzlement and
other mishandling of funds.
