Contested Powers of Attorney in New York
New York Estate Litigation Attorney
A 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.
