Mental Capacity Assessments

Public and private attorneys, fiduciaries and social service professionals often request preparation of probate and LPS capacity declarations, testamentary capacity assessments of living and deceased elders, and expert testimony regarding capacity issues for civil and criminal proceedings. Attorneys and financial professionals who are approached by elders to craft wills, trusts, or  to make major changes to their estates, may consider requesting my assessment services to avoid future litigation. I also provide such consultations for adult protection, guardianship, and law enforcement professionals.
