Elder Law Update: What You Should Know About Adult Protective Services

We get a good amount of calls in our office about elder abuse or elder neglect. Many times the call comes from a professional who calls about a client of his or hers who appears to be in distress and has no family or friends to assist. When we get these calls, we almost always refer the person to Adult Protective Services (APS).

Don't Get Caught With An Outdated POA

As many of our clients already know, a comprehensive general durable power of attorney is an effective estate planning tool to authorize another person to act on one’s behalf in the event of disability or incapacity.  In an effort to improve the usefulness of a power of attorney (“POA”), the laws regarding powers of attorney under the Ohio Revised Code were revised in March of 2012, in order to offer additional safeguards against abuse by the agent appointed in the POA and encourage third party acceptance.  

May is National Elder Law Month

National Elder Law Month is sponsored by the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA), a group of Elder Law Attorneys of which our firm is a member. During Elder Law Month, NAELA members across the country offer public seminars, workshops, and other activities designed to educate the public. All of the attorneys at our firm will be speaking for these types of events every week during the month of May at various locations. Following is a list of all the events where our attorneys will be speaking this month.
