Estate Law Questions? Ask an Estate Lawyer.
Hello and thank you for the opportunity to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to help if I can.
To clarify, are you asking how you can go about finding an elder law attorney in your area? Unfortunately, the attorneys here cannot represent you. We can only answer legal questions.
Hello again. Thank you for clarifying.
Yes, hiring an elder care attorney is the next step, since that attorney can file the required paperwork to get your sister to stop abusing your mother and to stop recklessly spending her money.
The best way to find a local attorney with expertise in this area is to utilize local bar associations. The website below has a list of associations in all of the counties, along with phone numbers. So, you should choose the county where your mother resides, and then call that association and ask for a referral regarding elder abuse.
Does that answer your question? Please let me know if you need clarification, as I am happy to continue helping you until you are satisfied.
