Powers of Attorney and Capacity Issues
Ontario’s Substitute Decisions Act provides guidelines for determining whether an individual can make fundamental decisions regarding his or her health, finances, property and overall well-being. Powers of attorney can be established for both property and personal care, which includes health care decisions. Both powers of attorney survive incapacity. At The Law Office of Thomas J. MacLennan, we represent those seeking to establish powers of attorney or disputing them.
Where an individual is incapable and without a valid power of attorney, we can act for you to obtain the orders appointing guardians of property and the person.
Our team approaches every case strongly focusing on client attention, responsiveness and respect. Contact a highly knowledgeable Toronto estate litigation lawyer through our online form or call 416-591-1354 to arrange a consultation.
