At the Law Offices of Gregory P. Turza, we also work with your family if you are responding to a loved one’s sudden health crisis or incapacitation. If you believe that a relative may not be able to make important decisions on his or her own behalf, we will ask three basic questions:

  • Does your loved one have the mental capacity to make decisions for himself or herself? If not, did he or she execute power of attorney or guardianship documents?
  • What are your loved one’s assets?
  • What is your loved one’s income?

 
Having answers to these questions will allow us to work collaboratively with you to determine how to ensure that your loved one gets the care that he or she needs while protecting an estate to the maximum extent possible.
