Holmes Costin & Marcus PLLC Represents Clients in Disputes over Wills and Trusts

If you have a question about what you can do to protect an adult loved one with diminished capacity, mental health issues, or special needs, we will advise you on your options and help you obtain the protection you seek. If you have a situation in which there is a disagreement over the performance of someone acting as an agent under a power of attorney, a trustee of a trust, or an executor of a will, we will be your advocates in reaching a resolution.

Sometimes, you have to go to Court to get the protection or resolution you seek. We know that litigation involving guardianships, powers of attorney, wills and trusts is stressful and work to reduce your stress by providing you with as much information about the process and possible outcomes as we can along the way. The following are types of situations for which we may be the lawyers you need:

  • Your father is diagnosed with dementia and has recently revoked the power of attorney naming you as agent and executed a new power of attorney naming a care giver as agent;

  • Your mother, who lives by herself, is showing signs of cognitive impairment and is struggling with paying bills;

  • You are not sure whether you can protect your father using the power of attorney that he signed naming you as agent years ago;
  • Your special needs child is about to turn 18 and you want to make sure he or she is protected;

  • You are the agent under your mother’s power of attorney and your siblings are questioning your actions;

  • The trustee has failed to provide you, as beneficiary, with any reporting of trust assets
