Careful and thoughtful estate planning can prepare us for many of the financial, emotional and legal challenges that come with growing older. Unfortunately, life is unpredictable and sometimes as we grow older we are confronted with a crisis. Similarly, some people fail to plan properly and are faced with a crisis that could have been avoided.
At the Law Offices of Esther Hopkins, P.C., we will work closely with you and your loved ones in a confidential, delicate manner to cope with a variety of crisis situations, including:
• Conservatorship proceedings
• Contested conservatorships
• Contested powers of attorney
• Incapacity management
• Elder financial and personal abuse
• Health care management
• Asset and financial protection
• Family disputes
• Ensuring the wishes of the aging are carried out
Crisis situations such as these often involve infighting between family members. Disputes can escalate quickly. When they do, both of our attorneys strive to work with families through mediation. However, when mediation proves impossible, our attorneys have the experience necessary to take the matter to court. Earlier in her career, Esther Hopkins successfully litigated a wide range of business, probate and trust lawsuits. Fabiola Karls has broad experience in conservatorship, estate and trust litigation. Additionally, she has extensive experience in family law, which she incorporates in the resolution of family conflicts over conservatorship, estate and trust administration.
If you or someone you love is faced with an elder law crisis issue, contact us today to discuss your situation. We will work closely with you to protect your interests and those of your loved ones.
