What way to go about it wouldI need a Solicitor to deal with same.
Yes, you will need a solicitor. You cannot be appointed his power of attorney as he is no longer mentally capable of appointing anyone to be his power of attorney. You will need to engage a solicitor and seek to have him appointed a ward of court
Thank you for your information. Can you recommend a solicitor who deals
with LPA in the centre of dublin or the northside.
