Estate & Probate Attorney Services

Help Stop Elder Abuse by Caregivers

Attorneys that specialize in the Estate and Probate area come in contact with problems whereby their clients are controlled by a forceful sibling with the power of attorney or a controlling caregiver. In some instances, the controlling person is dissipating the assets of the elderly person for personal gain and stealing from other siblings. The forensic accountants of Sage work with attorneys in this instance and can assist by utilizing their proprietary software, DIO, with the analysis of bank records and asset sales transactions.

Sage understands the complexity that can occur in probate matters concerning:

  • Absentee family members having little influence over the elderly person because of manipulation by caregivers
  • Caregivers or relatives that are influencing the elderly person and receiving gifts from the person
  • The caregiver that encroaches on the rights of family members
  • The need for oversight
  • The necessity of marshaling the assets of an estate
  • The division of assets into community and separate property assets
