Unfortunately, some people try to take advantage of their elderly family members. If your loved one is taken advantage of, stolen from, or otherwise abused, they may be entitled to a vulnerable adult protection order. Washington has very strong laws against elder abuse, and imposes heavy consequences on the abusers, sometimes including forfeiture of all or part of their inheritance.
To make a will or trust, a person must be “of sound mind.” We have experience with cases of elder abuse, and inheritance rights of abusers. If your loved one was subject to undue influence, fraud, or lacked capacity to sign the documents he or she signed, or if you have been wrongfully accused, contact us.
